Alongside the clip, Cruise wrote: "We've done car chases in Mission: Impossible movies before. But nothing like this one."

The video shows the Mission: Impossible team including director Christopher McQuarrie and stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood discussing an extended car chase sequence that takes place in Rome and sees Cruise drive two different cars with one hand.

The clip shows Cruise did actually drive the cars one-handed for realism.

Cruise says in the video: "Everything we shot is completely practical."

He then adds: "It all comes down to one thing. How do we involve the audience. I just want to give them that thrill."
