Mercedes-Benz SUV Fleet Takes Leading Role in Eagerly Anticipated Adventure
“In 1997 the Mercedes-Benz M-Class made its first official appearance in the Hollywood Blockbuster ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’. Today, 18 years later, we are delighted to continue our Jurassic Park partnership and to see a multitude of phenomenal Mercedes-Benz vehicles featured in the awe-inspiring ‘Jurassic World’,” said Clive Hammond, CEO Zawawi Trading Company-Automotive, Authorized General Distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Oman.
“The response from Mercedes-Benz fans and those of the Jurassic Park Series has been incredible – their excitement is palpable, and it’s going to be absolutely fantastic to see the amazing new Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupé thrill the audience in its jungle mission as it takes its bow on the world stage.”
Showing that no challenge is too great for Mercedes-Benz and proving to be remarkable in every role, the Mercedes-Benz SUVs were a perfect fit with the exacting requirements of the Jurassic World adventure epic. Sophisticated and refined, the vehicles demonstrated their extraordinary versatility and sensational robust spirit - ready for anything, powerful and engineered to protect, wowing with their capabilities across all terrains and in every situation.
With the refined sportiness of a coupé and the effortless superiority of an SUV, the GLE Coupé is made for big roles and in its silver screen debut proves Mercedes-Benz’s off-road competence and energy from the first to the very last second of its appearance, giving the audience the chance to preview the exciting characteristics of the new Mercedes-Benz Coupé before it is even on the road.
The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé was designed to push the long-standing traditional coupé boundaries, with sensual lines, a stretched greenhouse, and thrilling driving performance. The GLE 450 AMG Sport Coupé is powered by a 362-hp biturbo V6 engine, with a sleek exterior to maximize handling and responsiveness. DYNAMIC SELECT includes five settings to personalize the engine, steering, and efficiency controls at the flip of a switch. Key highlights of the vehicle also include 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive, intuitive head unit with 8-inch display screen, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST with autonomous braking, DISTRONIC PLUS with steering assist, and touchpad and safety equipment upgrades.
As part of the global debut of the GLE Coupé, Mercedes-Benz Oman will be hosting an exclusive preview of the movie for its customers and social media followers on June 11th, 2015. A social media competition was also organized for fans and followers to win an opportunity to be among the first people to watch the action-filled adventure.
