Latest Die Hard movie destroyed 132 cars

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 18, 2013

As many as 132 cars were destroyed during a car chase at the latest Die Hard movie, costing its producers about $11 million. Bruce Willis’ movie, A Good Day to Die Hard, is mainly set in Russia. According to director John Moore, Willis drives a Mercedes-Benz G Class SUV as he chases Russian rivals who kept firing shoulder rockets at incoming cars. Moore said that aside from destroying 132 cars, another 518 needed plenty of work.

He said that it “hurts” him to have an actual Lamborghini driven over because he is a “car fanatic.” In this epic scene that takes several minutes, Willis gave out some classic one-liners as he drives over the cars. The filmmakers received help from Mercedes for the G Class, which they thought would be a good fit for the scene in Russia. Moore said that in Moscow, Mercedes’ vehicles are as numerous as yellow taxi cabs in New York.

Moore told the automaker that he wanted to acquire several of these G wagons since they don’t plan on wrecking all the cars in Moscow. While undertaking the great stunts, several uber-expensive Mercedes-Benz units with supercharged engines were damaged.
