After scouring the test results for some useful conclusion, the answer is “not really.” The M DCT car hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, cleared the quarter-mile in 12.7 at 113 mph, and achieved 150 mph in 26 seconds flat. Compare that to the six-speed manual’s numbers of 4.3, 12.8 at 113, and 24.3, respectively. If you zoom in even closer and look at each 10-mph increment, the two cars trade off which is quicker until 120 mph, when the manual starts pulling away.

"Performance-wise", the true big advantage of DTC is that you can keep your both hands on the steering wheel when you are speeding... It arrived to me that I didn't have the balls to pass the third on small mountain roads. So maybe you can be a bit faster with DCT if your speed exceeds 115kph in those circumstances.
