Carlos Lago of Ignition revisits the new 2013 BMW M5 to test out something that was missing from their first test: a manual transmission. Is the 6-speed stick shift better than the standard automatic twin-clutch version?

Just recently we have published our own impressions on the manual transmission, just a year later after we tested the DCT M5.

The 2013 M5 is powered by a high-revving 4.4-liter turbocharged unit that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. It comes in both manual and 7-speed DCT transmission. The base price of the F10 M5 is $90,695.
