BMW cars have always been glowing stars on the big screen, and after its latest dazzling appearance in the Mission Impossible franchise, it is now making an impressive debut in the world of video streaming, as a whole range of BMW cars will be featured alongside legendary CIA analyst and agent Jack Ryan in the new Amazon series, written by the prodigy novelist Tom Clancy himself, entitled “Jack Ryan”.
The first season is available now exclusively on Prime Video.
In the new series, John Krasinski will play the role of Jack Ryan.
Jack Ryan is an up-and-coming CIA analyst with a unique talent for analyzing communication patterns who is pulled from the safety of his desk job and thrust into pursuit of terrorists across Europe and the Middle East, in an effort to prevent a devastating terrorist attack against the US and its allies. Wendell Pierce and Abbie Cornish join Krasinski to complete the star-studded cast.
In their pursuits, Jack Ryan and his CIA colleagues rely on the strong support of several BMW vehicles. Driving the BMW 540i xDrive Sedan with its high-performance inline six-cylinder engine (combined fuel consumption: 7.9-7.7 l/100km; combined CO2 emissions: 179-174 g/km), with an acceleration level of 0 to 100 km/h in a stunning 4.8 seconds, the CIA agents are always one step ahead of their foes. The proven all-wheel-drive system xDrive also provides Ryan with optimum traction in extreme conditions, as illustrated by a dramatic car chase through the snow.
The BMW X5 and BMW X6 are also featured in the series. A special role is reserved for a legendary model from BMW’s past: the BMW 2002, widely admired for its dynamic performance and agility.
“Throughout the action-packed story, Jack Ryan not only demonstrates his analytical capabilities; he also shows pure athleticism and short reaction times under the most extreme conditions. The BMW 5 Series Sedan – our ‘business athlete’ – with its dynamic performance, superior handling and all-round connectivity is perfect for him,” according to Uwe Dreher, head of Brand Communications BMW, BMW i, BMW M. “Our BMW models fit right in, the series is all about excitement, passion and action – all of which suit BMW down to the ground.”
