Is there an individual more perfect to advertise your tough guy cars than John McClane? Mercedes-Benz thinks not. “From the C-Class to the Zetros, the Mercedes-Benz model fleet could not be better suited to this action film with its spectacular stunts in the streets of Moscow. An exciting film with many emotionally appealing vehicles,” says Anders Sundt Jensen, Head of Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Mercedes-Benz vehicles stand for safety, performance and distinctive design. And they are at home in all major European cities. This suits them perfectly and completely authentically to the screenplay. For example, the G-Class, Sprinter, Unimog and Zetros are the ideal “hero cars” for the hard-as-nails requirements of John and Jack McClane”, continues Jensen.
