The debut of Mercedes new high-performance GLE 63 AMG Coupe will take place at next week’s Detroit Motor Show. The specs on this vehicle are incredible, which is why it was a good choice to use as a picture car in the upcoming “Jurassic World.”
The German auto maker confirmed a partnership with Universal Pictures to showcase their vehicle in the fourth film in the Jurassic Park series. This isn’t the first time the two companies have joined forces. In 1997, Mercedes introduced their original M-Class SUV in Steven Spielberg’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park.” Check out the images of the new GLE 63!
“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 Coupé.”
Here’s the storyline for the action/sci-fi/adventure.
