Mercedes GLE Coupe will continue the Mercedes partnership with Universal Pictures for another installment of the Jurassic Park movie.
The partnership first started in 1997, when Mercedes used the original Steven Spielberg movie to introduce the first generation of M-Class SUV. Now, the history repeats, as in the jungles of new Jurassic World, the characters played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard use the off-road capabilities of various Mercedes-Benz vehicles, especially the all-new GLE Coupe, which appears in its series-look for the first time.
The first prototype of the new coupe SUV, which was handmade specially for filming, can be seen in the movie, right in time for its mid-2015 market launch. The actors used a GLE 450 AMG Sport for dynamic off-road scenes set against the tropical backdrop of Jurassic World.
“We are delighted to have been able to support this epic action-adventure with our vehicles,” said Jens Thiemer, Head of Marketing Communications for Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Our wide range of SUVs in particular fit perfectly with Jurassic World’s various requirements, with the focus on our new trendsetter, the GLE Coupe.”
