According to John Moore, the director of Die Hard 5 (A Good Day To Die Hard), Mercedes-Benz supplied them with about 140 vehicles and guess what – all of them were destroyed in the making. Mercedes told John Moore that whatever vehicles weren’t destroyed in the filming of Die Hard 5, he could keep.

Well, none of the cars made it out alive so John went home empty-handed. What’d you expect from a Bruce Willis action movie? At least we know there are some high-impact car chase scenes with a touch of elegance (G-Wagons and S-Classes).

According to John Moore, the director of A Good Day To Die Hard,” one epic car chase in particular (involving Willis piloting a Mercedes G-Class) resulted in the destruction of 132 cars and a further 518 requiring work. A quick calculation reveals that the awesome action sequence was priced at – carry the 2, divide by Pi… $11 million.

And that was without the generosity of Mercedes who supplied the production team with several different models gratis. Moore was told that he could keep any of the cars that didn’t get wrecked. Needless to say – as the footage courtesy of the carmaker proves – that didn’t happen.
