What's the max speed in each gear?

I used to know it on all my old cars, but have no idea on the F10 7spd DCT.

Anybody?

Is this correct? I suppose I could go out and test it, but I thought 2nd goes to higher around 68mph?

I did this years ago plugging the 3.15 differential gear along with the rear tire diameter of 27.1" for a 295/35-19, and the transmission gears of 4.81, 2.59, 1.70, 1.28, 1.00, .84, and .67 for 7th into a calculator online. I just went to 7K for engine rpm though and got:
37, 69, 105, 140, 179, 213, and 267 mph

I mainly wanted to find that magic 200 mph and it came at around 6,600 rpm in 6th.

Okay, okay, I know you've seen it on your tach. I have to calculate it!

f10 m5 definitely one of the longest geared DCT cars I've come across, and sadly the f90 m5 is one of the shortest geared ZF8 cars I've come across.

Keep in mind that with a raised redline the speed will increase per gear. Not too prominent on this model but on the V8 M3 it makes a large difference on the track to have that extra 2 or 300 RPM

I've only been 197 but am waiting for another good day to try. But plenty of 185 in the past
