According to John Moore, director of <em>A Good Day To Die Hard</em>, starring Bruce Willis, There were 132 (cars) that could never be used again. Another 518 required a lot of work. And damn right there were some good cars there... That's the fun of it."<br /><br />Please join us in one great big collective sigh. Done? Okay, let's continue.<br /><br />"With Die Hard it's about how audacious the action is," says Moore. "So you have to drive over a <a href="http://autoblog.com/lamborghini/">Lamborghini</a>. An actual one. And yes it hurts me. I'm a car fanatic." Yeah. Sounds like it hurt really bad... though not as bad as the final tally after all the carnage had been counted: "Someone showed me the numbers on the car chase and soup to nuts, you put it all together it was like an $11 million sequence."<br /><br />Interestingly enough, that $11 million tally didn't include a "several" <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/g-class/">Mercedes-Benz G-Class </a>SUVs. According to Moore, the German automaker provided G wagons at no cost for filming, and, of course, all of them were wrecked. Proof of such can be seen by watching the video, provided by Mercedes itself, <a href="/2013/02/16/new-die-hard-movie-wrecked-132-cars-in-11-million-chas/#continued">below</a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/16/new-die-hard-movie-wrecked-132-cars-in-11-million-chas/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>New <em>Die Hard</em> movie wrecked 132 cars in $11 million chase scene [w/video]</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/16/new-die-hard-movie-wrecked-132-cars-in-11-million-chas/">New <em>Die Hard</em> movie wrecked 132 cars in $11 million chase scene [w/video]</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 16 Feb 2013 19:01:00 EST.
