Mercedes-Benz joins forces with Justice League!
If you’re a superhero fan, you’ll definitely be catching Justice League, one of the most anticipated movies in 2017. But that isn’t all! Eagle-eyed fans can also catch a glimpse of the brand new Mercedes-Benz vehicles alongside the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash and Aquaman as they save the planet from an alien assault of catastrophic proportions.
The superhero team up isn’t the only thing that’s getting us excited. Mercedes-Benz' new E-Class Cabriolet will make its silver screen premier as the car of choice for Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot).
But the real highlight will be the appearance of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, which was originally intended to be a virtual model created exclusively for the Gran Turismo 6 video game. The AMG Vision GT in Justice League is built with a posh interior by the Mercedes-Benz design team specifically for the film's production.
The AMG Vision GT certainly is a vehicle unlike any other, and will be the ride of choice for Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as he goes in to recruit Barry Allen/ The Flash (Ezra Miller). What makes the vehicle even more unique is that filming required the whole vehicle to be 10 per cent larger than its original size, in order to accommodate Ben Affleck's 6'3 height.
"As a designer you have to create fantasy, so we often get inspired by the film industry. I am excited that this time, the film industry was inspired by us and our Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo became the car for a super hero. Extreme proportions, sensual contours and intelligently implemented high tech blend to form a breathtaking body and the perfect car for Bruce Wayne," said Gordon Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG.
