Iron Man 3 will showcase the Audi R8 e-Tron, R8 Spyder, A8, S5 and Q7

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 11, 2013

For the third instalment of Iron Man, Tony Stark will still be driving an Audi. This time, it will be an all-electric Audi R8 E-Tron prototype. In the first Iron Man movie in 2008, Stark drove a new R8 while in Iron Man 2, he sat behind the wheel of a R8 Spyder.

There had been rumors that plans to use an Audi R8 E-Tron for the third movie had been scrapped because of concerns related to weight and cost. But this report throws out those speculations. If the R8 E-Tron gets the go signal for it to enter production, it will be equipped with two electric motors that deliver 376 hp and 605 lb-ft of torque. In Iron Man 3, Stark’s girlfriend “Pepper” Potts will also be seen driving the Audi S7.

“Audi is excited to once again showcase the brand’s cutting edge technology and sleek design with the Audi R8 e-tron in Marvel’s Iron Man 3,” said Loren Angelo, General Manager of Brand Marketing for Audi of America. “This is a strategic collaboration for us. Similar to the position of the R8 as an innovation leader, Iron Man’s character consistently evolves throughout the trilogy as he masterminds new trends in technology and engineering.”
