Movie magic.

Some were upset that a S-Class was blown up in "Michael Clayton" . . . however the real damage to the car was done during the production of "The Devil Wears Prada" when the same car was cut in half to accommodate the filming of the interior scenes.

I was upset I paid to see Michael Clayton.
And if an S class was going to blow up, why wasn't he in it!
Good scene though. But did they really go an blow up a perfectly good mercedes S class, or did they go get a junker from Discount Al's in West Hollywood? I doubt MBUSA gave them one to blow up. How do the studios get these demolition props?

uhh . . the one they blew up wasn't "perfectly good" . . . it had been previously cut in half as mentioned above.

Sorry. Carelessness on my part in not connecting the dots, counselor.
It doesn't change my impression of the movie however.

Don't worry the car was fixed up when it was returned to the dad. I wasn't sure how a car that got ragged up in Vegas just magically gets fixed up very quickly.

"Air conditioning does not work."

Haha, I'm surprised they didn't put more into that advertisement (35mpg+).

Most production companies are cost concious. For instance, that Daytona convertible in "Miami Vice" tv series . . . fake. The race cars in "Grand Prix" . . . rebodied F2 cars.
