The Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol will air on December 16, 2011, but while many people think Tom Cruise will be the star of the show, we would beg to differ. If we do find ourselves checking out the fourth movie in the Mission Impossible franchise, we’ll be doing so just to get a glimpse of the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car that will inspire the production BMW i8 version.

"We are thrilled to be involved again in another Hollywood Blockbuster," said Ian Robertson, BMW AG Board Member for Sales and Marketing. "The BMW Group leads the way in developing future mobility with a focus on sustainability. One great example is the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car which will be presented in the film. With its futuristic design and large glass surfaces, the car offers a fascinating perspective on the future of sheer driving pleasure – in combination with maximum efficiency. Also with BMW ConnectedDrive technology, it is the perfect car for Ethan Hunt to outsmart his pursuers through narrow streets and busy city traffic."

Hit the jump to watch the Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol trailer, but more importantly, pay close attention to the one minute mark to catch a glimpse of the BMW i8.

My main concern would be the safeness of the car. I don’t think that the glass door is safe and the privacy as well. I wonder if BMW has thought about it?

Well, it seems that the i3 and i8 were already lined up for future production. As the based car, I think the BMW has to think about a more functional side of the car aside from making the car to look more futuristic!

The car concept is kind if different from the other for it look so sporty and it has an impressive performance as well. However, I’m just concerned with the privacy of the vehicle.. the doors seems to transparent.

Too bad that we can’t see this car in the production. With the appearance of the car in the sad movies plus the positive review for this vehicle, I hope they have find a possible market wherein they could sell the car.

Amazing trailer. I can’t wait for December! I hope the fourth installment won’t be that bad and I’m still in doubt because we all know that we’re tired of seeing such kind of never ending actions films. Who cares, I’m into visual effects, car actions, Tom Cruise, storyline, etc.

Now, this definitely makes the movie more interesting to watch. Sorry to the Tom Cruise fans out there, but I only watch the Mission Impossible movies because of the cars and not his antics.

Whatever model or type of car that Tom Cruise uses especially in the Mission Impossible Movie are really amazing. Car’s don’t matter for me. It’s on how he uses it.

Well, if this one becomes a blockbuster, then I wouldn’t be surprised if BMW would actually go ahead with production of the car. It would really be something that a lot of folks would be looking forward to.

Wow, they are actually including this one in the movie, that’s certainly a good move. Now Tom Cruise definitely has a good competitor for screen time. Hail BMW!

OK, I will definitely pick the car over Tom Cruise at any given time. It’s really a good idea that they have decided to included the EfficientDynamics in the movie, it will definitely attract a lot of gearheads.

Well, I do agree that the design of the original concept seems so good! The features and engine seems amazing. BTW, I wonder if this car will perform just like the 1 series.

I wonder why they need to built a new car for the Vision EfficientDynamics concept. The design of the original concept car seems better. However, the look of the car seems very cool.
