BMW offers M5 manual in USA

With plans to launch the F10 M5 in the USA this summer, BMW has confirmed that it will offer the 552bhp super saloon with a manual gearbox, as well as the standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. This was also offered as an option on the previous M5 (E60), but never came to Europe.

This will be a no-cost option for anyone buying the M5, but yet again BMW has no plans to offer this option outside of the USA.
