Once again, Iron Man’s alter ego, Tony Stark, will be tearing through the streets of a crime-infested city in an Audi.
Moviegoers apparently aren’t getting tired of the Iron Man franchise and seeing Robert Downey Jr. behind the wheels of Audis. Such will be the case again when Iron Man 3 comes to theaters May 3.
Audi has placed a lot of its hottest cars in the first two movies. They included the R8 supercar and its convertible version, the stately A8 big sedan, S5 sporty car and the Q7 crossover. This time, look for the electric version of the R8, the e-tron.
“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, in a statement.
This time, Downey will be co-starring with Gwyneth Paltrow as Virginia “Pepper” Potts. She will drive an Audi S7 Sportback.
