The custom-made AMG Vision Gran Turismo debuted alongside the Batmobile

Mercedes-Benz had a big weekend as they unveiled their partnership with Warner Brothers for the upcoming release of superhero epic Justice League. At a grand presentation at New York Comic Con, Mercedes-Benz unveiled their new partnership with the Justice League film in the form of a custom made AMG Vision Gran Turismo, which was debuted alongside the Batmobile.

This very slick vehicle, which was first designed in 2013, will serve as the personal car of Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne and is a fitting car for the character of the billionaire Bat vigilante.

As the first functioning model produced by Mercedes-Benz, this AMG Vision Gran Turismo has been made 10 percent larger to accommodate Affleck’s 6'4'' (193cm) frame. The car also comes packed out with a 585-horsepower V8 engine, so Affleck’s Bruce Wayne will seriously be able to get around.

Mercedes-Benz will also be taking care of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and have provided her with the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, which comes with a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine.

Gadot herself is a fan of the vehicle and gave her seal of approval saying: “I was very impressed. The car Diana drives is very elegant and not too flashy. Very chic and practical.”

Fans will be able to see both vehicles in action when Justice League is released in New Zealand on November 16.
