I got a very interesting email today from Danny with some cool pictures of a bullet riddled C-Class. It turns out that the new W204 C-Class is staring in a new movie called “State of the Nation II” being filmed in London. The vehicles have Mercedes-Benz registration plates, which is a hint that it may be a product placement of the new C-Class for the movie. While I have never heard of State of the Nation One, I am excited to see the scene where the Mercedes gets shot up. It is nice to see Mercedes continue to embrace product placements, as they have done in the past with “The Devil wears Prada” and “Man in Black II”. Audi has also been heavily investing, with the “I Robot” recently and now news is emerging that the new R8 will be the car of the “Iron Man”.
Update: I was informed by Danny that the mentioned film title may only be a cover title. He tells me that it looks like a high bugdet film, one hint would of course be the use of the W204. The film crew at the set was not willing to reveal any information when asked. We’ll keep you posted!
