Tony Stark has been very loyal to his German supercar of choice, having driven the Audi R8 in 2008’s Iron Man and the R8 Spyder in the 2010 sequel. Most recently though, the billionaire philanthropist was spotted behind the wheel of an Acura NSX Concept in The Avengers – presumably a company car he received from his affiliation with Acura-sponsored S.H.I.E.L.D.
For the upcoming third instalment of the Iron Man movie franchise however, Robert Downey Jr’s sharp suited character will be reunited with his rightful sports car, the equally sharp looking Audi R8 e-tron prototype. Rather apt don’t you think, the arc reactor-powered super hero driving an electric-powered vehicle?
The Audi product placement doesn’t end there. Stark’s beau Pepper Potts, played by foxy Gwyneth Paltrow will be pictured driving an Audi S7 Sportback. Previously, the Audi A8, S5, and Q7 were all featured in the first and second instalments.
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 will be released across Malaysian theatres in April 25. Are you happy that Tony Stark is continuing his love affair with the Audi R8, or would you rather him stick to the NSX?
