Just like the previous instalments of the MI series, Tom Cruise's character drives BMW vehicles in the new instalment too. BMW's association with the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise started in 2011. Cruise had driven a BMW i8 hybrid supercar in 'Ghost Protocol' released in 2011 and BMW introduced its new 7 Series flagship sedan in 'Rogue Nation' in 2015. In the last instalment, Cruise's also rode a BMW M3 and BMW Motorrad S 1000 RR superbike.

For the latest movie, Tom Cruise will take the 28-generation BMW 5 Series and R NineT for a spin. The 54-year-old actor was spotted behind the wheel of the classic BMW sedan for a high octane stunt scene. The video clip shows Cruise behind the wheel throwing the 5 Series down a flight of stairs and into the road.

E28 is the second generation of BMW 5 Series and was produced from 1981 to 1988. That makes the model a collector's item now. The E28 model was initially produced with petrol 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engine only. In 1983, BMW added a diesel engine for the first time in a 5 Series. The E28 is also known for the first 5 Series with the centre console angled towards the driver and the option of anti-lock brakes (ABS).

While the four-wheeler is a classic machine, the bike R Nine T was debuted in 2014. The wire spoke wheels, round headlamp, analogue instrument and aluminium accents give retro styled Cafe Racer model a classic old-school look. Powering the new R nine T is an air-cooled flat twin 1170cc boxer engine that pumps out 110bhp at a peak torque of 119Nm mated to a six-speed gearbox. The bike has a top speed of 200kmph.
