Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead Hosts Jurassic World Preview for Customers

Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe stars in Jurassic World

Last week Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead hosted a private showing of the summer blockbuster “Jurassic World” starring Chris Pratt and the soon-to-be-released GLE Coupe SUV and a variety of other Mercedes-Benz models. The event was a hit as customers thoroughly enjoyed the movie and also got a sneak peek at upcoming Mercedes-Benz models!

Jurassic World Mercedes-Benz Models

Proving just how rugged and capable Mercedes’ G-Class really is, several models made an appearance during the new Jurassic World film. The GLE, Sprinter Van, six-wheeled G-Wagen, and Unimog all premiered in the movie. If the new G-Class is tough enough to survive a dinosaur attack, it can handle just about anything.

Although some may claim Jurassic World’s Mercedes models only appear thanks to product placement, the filmmakers beg to differ. According to The Washington Post, even script writers commented that in real life, it makes sense for the theme park to use Mercedes because of its luxury designs and durable capabilities.

Jurassic World is an upscale theme park, so we wanted one of the most upscale auto manufacturers to be involved in it,” said producer Pat Crowley.

“Unveiling the new GLE Coupé in Jurassic World was a natural fit as we continue our relationship with Mercedes. It really adds to the storytelling,” said other executives.

Believe it or not, the six-wheeled G-Wagen and monster Unimog are real models offered outside of the US as light-armored vehicles and equipment carriers, perfect for dinosaur wrangling. Plus, as evidenced by the GLE, Mercedes can retain a certain level of sophistication while providing unparalleled performance.

New G550 Night Star Edition Prepares for US Market Release

Mercedes-Benz releasing limited edition G550 Night Star Edition in the USThe G550 might be the least Mercedes-Benz-looking vehicle you’ve ever seen, especially if your predominant image of the brand is of a sleek sedan lit by scenes of suave nightlife. However, that’s not to say it’s not an impressive vehicle; in fact, quite the opposite. This enormous G-Wagen comes with a rugged exterior style and great performance, after all.

Now, the G550 might be making a special trip over to the States. The G550 Night Star Edition is destined for an American release sometime in the near future. The announcement is a rarity, as Night Star editions are usually reserved for vehicles on the Eastern market. The new Night Star edition will come with a two-tone paint job, Designo Black and Mystic White colors mixed together.

The vehicle also comes with impressive eighteen-inch black wheels. On the inside, you’ll find tons of leather appointments and upholstery, making the inside just as upscale as the outside. If you want to check one of these babies out, though, you’ll have to stake your claim soon—the brand will only make 100 of the Night Star editions. In fact, they’ll mark each one with a plaque marking its number.
