Jurassic World to feature Mercedes-Benz models
I was a little too young to have watched the first movie in the Jurassic Park series, but by the time the second one rolled around I was old enough to retain a few things. Besides the big scary dinosaurs (at the beginning of widespread use of CGI, no less), one of the things that stood out was the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
Mercedes-Benz had tied up with the production house and provided them pre-production models of the M-Class for use in the movie, and these models were kitted out quite nicely for use on a dinosaur inhabited island. It was iconic as it was the first Mercedes-Benz SUV designed for an urban market in mind, and it looked downright cool being put through some blockbuster style abuse.
But this time around Mercedes-Benz has taken on a more active role in providing models for use on set. Everything from the classic G-wagon, to the industrial Unimog, and even the GLE crossover coupe model are to be featured in the movie.
