The new GLE Coupé really does show off its best side. The first prototype of its new SUV-sector vehicle was handmade one and a half years before the model’s market launch for the film. “Unveiling the new GLE Coupé in Jurassic World was a natural fit as we continue our relationship with Mercedes,” said producer Frank Marshall. “Audiences will find that the vehicles featured in the film lend themselves perfectly as the transportation of choice in the fully functioning international theme park we have created at Jurassic World.”
