BMW has partnered once again with Paramount Pictures’ action film franchise Mission Impossible. In the latest installment Mission: Impossible – Fallout, slated for July 27 release, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is seen driving the new BMW M5.
The new movie finds Ethan Hunt and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the direct.
Along with the new M5, the team of agents is reinforced by a number of other BMW models, including the 1986 5 Series Sedan, the 7 Series Sedan and the R nineT Scrambler. The bike can be seen in key scenes, performing daring manoeuvres at rapid speed in a wild chase through Paris.
A 1986 5 Series Sedan, from BMW’s historic past, also makes a major appearance in a high-octane scene.
The Ethan Hunt’s M5 is styled with characteristic BMW M Performance Parts, such as a black kidney grille and carbon-fibre mirror caps. The powerful 4.4-litre V8 biturbo develops 441 kW/600 hp and 750 Nm of torque, and features M xDrive all-wheel drive to make sure that Ethan Hunt always has the best-possible traction to keep him ahead of his enemies.
The “Mission Impossible” partnership between BMW and Paramount Pictures dates back to 2011.
“BMW and ‘Mission: Impossible’ are a perfect fit. We are proud of our long-running partnership with Paramount Pictures and that our powerful cars and motorcycles have been able to enhance this iconic film series time and again. For exciting chases, you need cars with impressive driving dynamics and handling,” said Uwe Dreher, head of Brand Communications BMW, BMW M, BMW i. “This provides the ideal stage for our most dynamic business athlete: the BMW M5.”
