8 iconic car models of superheroes in movies
For us, a car is just a product of mechanics and a means of transportation. However, the car has more functions when used by superheroes on screen. In addition to demonstrating the personality of the owner, the models that appear with superheroes also help promote the automakers. That explains why supercars appear more and more in superhero movies.
Mercedes-Benz Vision AMG Vision GT – Batman
In "Justice League" (2017), Mercedes-Benz appeared quite a lot. Wonder Woman drives an E-Class Cabriolet and the most notable car is the Vision AMG Vision GT from Bruce Wayne (Batman). In the Vision AMG Vision GT, viewers can easily think of Batman's Batmobile in the past with soft curves. The German brand also calls this car "civil Batmobile".
