That’s right; the Lamborghini is gone but Bruce Wayne has a new set of wheels for when the Batmobile is safely parked in the cave.
Mercedes-Benz announced their new collaboration with Justice League, providing the cars for the superheros in the movie, including the AMG Vision Gran Turismo as Bruce Wayne’s daily driver which will feature a proper interior with racing seats and a virtual dashboard section for the movie’s production purposes. The actual car that was used on set had to be enlarged to 110% compared to the original concept in order for Ben Affleck to fit inside as well.
“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”, says Gordon Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler. “Extreme proportions, sensual contours and intelligently implemented high tech blend to form a breathtaking body and the perfect car for Bruce Wayne.”
Other Mercedes models included in the movie are the E-Class Convertible which is the car of Wonder Woman or Diana Prince and the G-Class 4×4 Squared which apparently can’t reveal its role in the movie just yet.
Justice League will hit theaters on November 17, with the final trailer of the movie dropping this weekend. Mercedes has also released a 30-sec TV commercial and an exclusive “Making Of” featurette, linked below, showing the interior of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo in all of its glory.
