Luxury Cars – The 10 Best Cars In The Franchise, Ranked By price
Every installment in the Mission Impossible franchise tends to be packed with numerous chase scenes. As a result, hundreds of different car models have been used in each film. Even though the main characters are normally biased towards high-performance, high-end cars (because of product placement) ordinary rides get plenty of screen time too.
Plenty of cars are usually destroyed in each film too, thanks to the crazy and never-ending stunts. That’s no problem because the studio has a budget for that. Fans of the franchise who happen to be car lovers might want to purchase some of the cars that have been used so far. But how much do they cost?
10 2003 Lincoln Town Car Stretched Limousine (Mission Impossible: III) – $40,000
Limousines always get eyeballs rolling because they ooze elegance. One of the best limousines in the franchise appeared in the third installment to pick up Ethan Hunt at a train yard. But he isn’t going to a gala. Driving the limo is a baddie who had just kidnapped Ethan’s wife. He ordered him to do as he wanted or else…
Though limousines are mostly hired rather than bought, a couple of moneyed individuals like owning them. Interestingly, the 2003 Lincoln Town Car doesn’t have a ridiculous price tag. Average income earners that have the urge to be flashy can get one. Parking space might be the only issue.
9 2013 Land-Rover Range Rover Series IV (Rogue Nation) – $50,000
Bad guys in action movies are known to prefer SUVs. This particular car was driven by henchmen attached to the antagonist Solomon Lane aka “The man in glasses.” Lane was a former British intelligence operative who worked for SIS/MI6. He eventually went rogue after the formation of the syndicate and began conducting his own operations.
The Series IV appeared several times in the movie, including when Dunn is abducted. All over the world, it’s still considered a luxury car. Though not as expensive as supercars, it still mirrors wealth.
8 Alpha Romeo 166 (Mission Impossible: III) – $50,000
One baddie tried to catch up with Ethan in Italy using this car but he wasn’t so successful. It’s a shame because this specific model has top speeds of up to 152 mph. If he tried hard enough, he could have gotten close.
Among the cool cars of the franchise, the Alpha Romeo 166 is a little more affordable than the rest. Like most of the other older models, the price has also dropped in recent years
7 BMW M3 (Rogue Nation) – $70,000
Ethan Hunt proved that staircases are no problem for this car. It can literally move through anything. The car was involved in a Morocco chase in which Ethan was on the wheel as he drove through alleyways and every space he could find. Understandably, Benji was freaking out on the passenger’s seat. Ethan also did a reverse jump with the M3, which was quite impressive.
As revealed in the movie, there is a lot that the M3 can do. Some even prefer it to the M5. BMW lovers will need just about 70k to purchase it at the moment, which isn’t so bad.
6 Land Rover Defender (Several installments) -$50,000 – $80,000
The Defender has appeared several times in the franchise. One good example is in Rogue Nation where Ilsa helped Ethan Hunt break into a Syndicate base in Casablanca. To everyone’s surprise, she knocked off Benji and rode away with the ledger, leading to a lengthy chase scene involving cars and motorbikes.
The price of this specific type of vehicle mostly depends on the year of manufacture. Most recent models cost a little more than the older ones. However, every model has received great reviews from car critics.
5 Porsche 911 Convertible (Mission Impossible: II) – $100,000
The second installment is widely regarded as the weakest in the franchise thanks to director John Woo’s over-the-top action sequences. However, it was still an entertaining entry. One of the scenes involved Ethan Hunt going around in circles with former professional thief Nyah Nordoff-Hall.
Nyah was in an Audi TT while Ethan followed her around in a Porsche 911. The 911 has been in production since 1963 and its Porche’s most iconic model. It doesn’t come cheap either.
4 BMW M5 (Fallout) – $110,000
The M5 could be spotted at Ramstein Air Base as CIA Director Erika Sloane (Angela Bassett) spoke with former CIA director and new IMF secretary Allan Hunley (Alec Baldwin). Hunley later left the base using the car as Erika instructed Special Activities operative August Walker (Henry Cavill) to follow Ethan around.
The BMW M5 also appears briefly in the opening scene of the movie. It remains a popular car all over the world, thanks to its efficiency and general look. To get one, deep pockets are needed too.
3 2005 Aston Martin V8 Vantage (Ghost Protocol) – $130,000
Dubai is always full of supercars, a couple were shown from a distance but this was the one that caught Hunt’s attention the most. Though he didn’t drive it, Ethan checked out an Aston Martin V8 Vantage that was right behind him in Dubai as he stepped out of his own vehicle to enter a hotel.
One would need to fork out a tidy sum to get the Vantage. Red also seems to be the perfect color for the vehicle as the one in the movie looks extremely beautiful.
2 BMW i8 (Ghost Protocol) – $170,000
The protagonist Ethan Hunt could be spotted in the i8 while speeding through Mumbai streets in an effort to stop the villain Hendricks from facilitating the sale of a Soviet military satellite to an Indian telecommunications entrepreneur Brij Nath. Hendricks’ plan was to launch a nuclear missile.
The i8 featured in the movie as a concept car before it went into the market. It’s been a few years since it launched so the price isn’t as high as when it was first introduced.
1 Lamborghini Gallardo (Mission Impossible: III) – $200,000
Ethan used the car while leaving the Vatican with Zhen since he needed everyone to think he was the arms dealer Davian. As everyone was distracted, Declan fled into a sewer with the real Davian. Sadly, the Lambo’s beauty soon went up in flames. When Ethan left the car and went into the sewer, Zhen blew it up.
Despite not being a new model, the Gallardo is still one of the most in-demand supercars in the world. To acquire it, one would need to have pretty decent income/wealth too.
