Regulate the rhythms of power with breakthrough transmissions. The -speed manual is specially designed for the Z Roadster, with short-throw gear shifts for lightning-quick gear changes. A fuel-saving technologyincluded with the Z sDrive i when equipped with a manual transmission is the Auto Start-Stop function, which turns off the engine when youcome to a stop – then instantaneously restarts the engine when the clutch is depressed. The -speed Sport Automatic transmission selects themost efficient gears quickly and precisely. This lowers fuel consumption and reduces shift times to a minimum, while the slightest pressure onthe gas yields spontaneous thrust. The -speed Double Clutch Transmission uses seven gears operating between two transmission structures inone large housing. First, third, fifth and seventh gears are grouped in one structure; second, fourth and sixth gears are grouped in the other. Whenupshifting or downshifting, the system switches between the two structures, so that while one gear is being disengaged, the next is already inposition. Shifting takes milliseconds, adjusting thrust between heartbeats without a moment’s loss of force. This dynamic connection to the enginegives you precise power for every situation – from accelerating and cornering to grand slaloms through hills and mountains. And along the drive, theautomatic transmission allows you to choose between two driving systems: the smooth comfort of D mode, or S mode for sportier shifting. Fora still more seamless connection to the engine and the road, use the racing-inspired shift paddles on the sport steering wheel.
