The beginning part of Justice League features a neat product placement by Mercedes-Benz in the form of Bruce Wayne's car he drives around in to meet up with Barry Allen.
Now personally this car pretty much reminded me of the old Batmobile from the 1989 Batman film (which also found its way into various later interpretations of the character and his signature vehicle). It might, however, as well have been a reference to his Batmobile in this very same DCEU film (which might in turn be somewhat of a mixture of previous Batmobile incarnations as well). But disregarding if it was a reference to a specific movie or Batmobile version at all, it certainly looked remarkably otherworldly and "Batmany".
Now it's not a novum that a car manufacturer gets involved with the making of a film in order to design a unique car for the movie as a nice piece of "product" placement, as has been done by Audi with Will Smith's car in I, Robot for example. So what I'd like to know is if this car was specifically designed for the movie in a cooperation with Mercedes, maybe with the actual production design team of the movie involved. Or is this just a real existing car model that was chosen for the movie for whatever reasons? Or is it entirely an offspring of the production designers that just got the Mercedes star tacked onto it after striking a sponsorship deal with the company?
