The first prototype new SUV-sector GLE Coupe was handmade specially for filming, and will be seen on screen at a time coinciding with its mid-2015 market launch. Mercedes’ GLE 450 AMG Sport was made available for Jurassic World filming one-and-a-half years before its market launch. As such, security measures on set were huge, whether in remote filming locations or on NASA terrain in New Orleans.

Unveiling new GLE Coupe in Jurassic World was a natural fit says producer Frank Marshall as Mercedes vehicles featured in the film are a perfect transportation choice in the international theme park created at Jurassic World. A co-promotion package is planned for the film release.
