The body of 2013 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG four-door sedan on the spyshots is all covered up with not an inch visible to the naked eye, but that’s not really important, as there shouldn’t be much in the way of unique bodywork at the moment. The German engineers are most likely testing the way the chassis will cope with the demands of performance driving, with the test mule sporting components that will not make it to production. Don’t be fooled by those exhausts, Mercedes has most likely not finalized work on the whole powertrain of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG four-door sedan yet.

Spotted – 2012 BMW M5 Testing with Manual Gearbox in US

2012 BMW M5 spyshot

2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan is supposed to be in automatic, right? But, do you see that shabby-looking stick in the middle of the console? That’s probably one of the most important bits of leather plastic a metal in the world right now for true BMW M fans, because it indicates that the upcoming M5 will let you switch cogs manually with a little help from your left foot.

We got the scooped from Inside Line’s blog, we are able to tell you that the 2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan which will be unveiled at the upcoming Frankfurt auto show in September, will have a manual option… at least in the US. This is because a test conducted by BMW was spied on undisclosed location with a conventional stick which should be linked to a six-speed gear box.

2012 BMW M5 Manual Gear Box

The prototype of 2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan with manual gearbox was spotted in Los Angeles, California and was also seen wearing a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

Some US customers might not be all that into using a clutch pedal on the 2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan, so we’ll remind you that the performance saloon will also sport a seven-speed dual clutch option, otherwise known as the M DCT.

The 2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan with manual gearbox is still a closely guarded secret in some aspects, but we can tell you the monster will make use of a high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology (aka 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 found in the X5/X6 M SAVs). Figures might show up to 570 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque, enough to pull the vehicle past the 62 mph (100 km/h) threshold in 4.4 seconds.

2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan with manual gearbox will have significantly more power than its predecessor while also being 25 percent more efficient. The reduction in fuel consumption on the 2012 BMW M5 four-door sedan will be due to fuel-saving measures engineered by BMW Efficient Dynamics, such as an automatic stop-start system and brake energy regeneration system.
