As it nears its release in January 2011, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG is set for a big splash in terms of advertising, and the latest exposure of the upcoming executive sedan will be in a commercial set to premiere sometime around the end of January.
In the commercial, the CLS 63 AMG was let loose out on the hot desert dunes of Las Vegas, Nevada. You’ll also be able to see Robert Baker, the brand ambassador for AMG and founder of Logical Golf, sitting right where most of us probably want to be: behind the wheel of the CLS 63 AMG.
The late January premiere of the CLS 63 AMG’s commercial will coincide with Mercedes-Benz’ 125th year celebration of the motor car—one and one-quarter centuries since Carl Benz filed a patent for a “vehicle with a gas engine drive.”
Below, you’ll find some shots behind the scenes of the commercial’s shoot. Those are some pretty nifty camera setups near the rear of the car. Based on these, we’ll be seeing some close-ups and stunning aerial shots of the car. We’ll see how Mercedes-Benz makes the commercial for the CLS 63 AMG stand out from among the rest of the car commercials.
