BMW’s automobiles and motorcycles will be seen in the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” motion picture. BMW confirmed today its role as exclusive worldwide automotive partner of the next installment of Paramount Pictures’ action film franchise opening July 31, 2015. This is the second time BMW has “accepted the mission” to lend its technical support to the film’s production crew enabling it to deliver those automotive stunt scenes shot around the globe. BMW previously partnered with Paramount on the 2011 release of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.”
The film’s official trailer, released worldwide yesterday, offers fans a first glimpse of the high-adrenaline action Ethan Hunt (portrayed again by Tom Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF) team delivers – including driving scenes where the new BMW M3 is put through its paces. Its high-performance capabilities made the fifth generation M3 sports car the perfect choice to perform precision driving sequences.
The M division’s philosophy and dynamic design leaves no doubt about the M3’s motorsport genes while the BMW Motorrad S1000RR, which is also seen in the film trailer, represents the ultimate performance on two wheels.
BMW ConnectedDrive, which offers connectivity between driver, car and environment, was on hand for the IMF team as they traveled around the globe. This system also offers enhanced safety and driving comfort in real life, with features such as camera and driving assistance systems.
“We are delighted to again be a part of one of the most exciting action film franchises in movie history,” said Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management for BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW. “Dynamic performance and BMW ConnectedDrive make our BMW models the perfect cars for Ethan Hunt and his team, who use the vehicles’ ground-breaking functions and cutting-edge technology to make sure the good guys come out on top. The BMW M3 combines motorsport DNA with everyday practicality in an emotionally powerful concept quite unlike any other car.”
