It’s Not Just The New BMW M5 That Tom Cruise Drives In The Latest Mission: Impossible

BMW has a longstanding relationship with the producers of the Mission: Impossible movies. The Bavarian automaker has furnished the studio with a number of vehicles over the years, something that hasn’t changed with this latest installment.

Called Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the movie once again features Tom Cruise doing what Tom Cruise does in and on a variety of BMW cars and motorcycles. Chief among them, you might argue, is the new M5 sedan. But that’s not all.

As you can see from this preview clip, the movie features an extensive chase scene with Cruise’s Ethan Hunt driving a classic M5 – a first-generation E28 sedan in a metallic green. And despite its classic status, the action-film star doesn’t seem to have let up one bit.

The E28 was the first of six iterations of the M5 that BMW has produced over the years. It was powered by a 3.5-liter straight six that, in North American spec, put down 252 horsepower (or 188 kW) – as opposed to the European model’s 286 hp (213 kW), or the 600 boasted by the latest model, with its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. Little over 2,200 examples were built, leaving it as one of the rarest M cars BMW ever made.

There’s a modified R nineT scrambler in there too, which makes for some of the fastest-paced action in the entire film.

  • Great car chase scenes in the movie. Reminded me of Ronin, which had some of the best car chase scenes that I can remember from recent times.

    All I’m thinking when I see him driving off the stone stares in the old beaten M5, is whiplash pain afterwards…
