New improved manual tranny coming for M5?

First we read this when the first M5 E60 manual were delivered.

http://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/d/131648
Translation:
"The 6speed manual comes from the 550i and was adapted to the V10"


Now we have this new article, mention a new improved manual tranny, "twin plate clutch with self adjustment".


"LuK twin plate clutches are generally offered with the proven SAC technology (SAC = Self Adjusting Clutch). This offers the driver a definite advantage: The actuation force remains constant during the whole service life of the clutch.

For the high-performance twin plate clutch, several preparatory stages for mass production are already ongoing: The new BMW M5 will in future have a clutch with fixed clutch discs and an internally-ventilated contact plate, with which the thermal load of the clutch can be reduced. The technical data for this series vehicle is similarly spectacular to the performance data otherwise only known from motorsport: The BMW M5 has a performance level of 373 kW / 507 HP and a maximum torque of 520 Nm values enabling engine speeds above the 8000 rpm limit."
