The Bavarians had been keeping the car featured in the film under wraps. We didn’t know why for sure, but we had a pretty good idea.

Admittedly, we originally thought it would be the new BMW M550i, but it is actually the new BMW 540i M Sport. That’s really no worse, as we learned yesterday that the 540i is capable of 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
In the video, we see that Mr. Owen is going to get into some serious trouble with his new 5er. With Dakota Fanning in tow in the back seat, they’re being chased by baddies in Hummers, helicopters and armored trucks. All of said baddies have big guns.
We’re super excited to see the final video and watch the new 540i get whipped around. We also know that our buddy Matt Mullins did the stunt driving, even doubling for Clive Owen, so we’re gonna see some great stunt work.
