The “Mission: Impossible” partnership between BMW and Paramount Pictures, which dates from 2011, has already provided movie fans with several classic moments of cinematic history. The BMW brand has been meaningfully integrated into the stories of each film, showcasing forward thinking technologies and concepts that have helped the IMF agents successfully complete their missions, from Vision concepts to the current BMW M3, the BMW brand has become a part of the movie franchise. On July 21st, BMW Team RLL headed to Lime Rock Park where the BMW M8 GTE would race in the first event of the second half of the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The number 24 and number 25 cars wore special Mission Impossible Livery.
With special agent Ethan Hunt – aka Tom Cruise – behind the wheel, in „Mission: Impossible – Fallout” fans will get to see the new BMW M5 driven to the limit: flying sideways around corners, tires smoking and the engine always redlining. It’s the perfect high performance partnership – what other vehicle is better suited for a blisteringly fast escape from some of the world’s deadliest villains?
PERFECTLY EQUIPPED FOR THE CHASE.
Looking impossibly cool in Singapore Grey metallic paint and kitted out with characteristic M Performance Parts like the black kidney grille and carbon-fibre mirror caps, the new BMW M5 looks every bit the leading movie star. The high-performance sedan is not just visually impressive, however. Under the hood, the 4.4-litre V8 biturbo engine with TwinPower Turbo technology and 441 kW/600 hp provides plenty of power. The newly developed high-performance M xDrive all-wheel drive ensures that Ethan Hunt always has the best-possible traction and superior driving dynamics to keep him ahead of the bad guys.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout hits theaters on July 27.
