Tony Stark Returns to the Audi R8 in Iron Man 3

It was fun, Acrua NSX , but ultimately, Tony Stark is returning to his old love.

With Stark set to return to the big screen this coming May for Iron Man 3, the eccentric billionaire playboy will once again sit behind the wheels of his old flame, the Audi R8 . The German supercar has been on the side of Stark since the first Ironman movie, but was left in the garage in favor of the NSX when Stark and his superhero buddies teamed up in the Avengers.

But now that it’s back to Iron Man, the R8, or specifically, the battery-powered R8 e-tron , is back in the loving arms of Tony Stark. You can see some production photos of Iron Man 3 that was released by Audi and clearly see Robert Downey Jr. behind the wheel of the German exotic.

Just like his high-powered suits, the Audi R8, in whatever variant it is, just suits Tony Stark to a tee.

Audi returns as Tony Stark’s vehicle of choice in Marvel’s Iron Man 3 slated for a May 3 release date

Audi has joined forces with Disney and Marvel Studios, a subsidiary of Marvel Entertainment, LLC for the release of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 due in theaters on May 3, 2013. The brand will once again be highlighted throughout the entire film. The Audi R8, R8 Spyder, A8, S5, and Q7 were all featured in the first and second installments.

“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.”

Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as Tony Stark, the title character in the film, whose Super Hero alter ego Iron Man is the result of an extremely versatile and indestructible high-tech armor suit. Whenever Stark hangs up his suit, the technically-adept billionaire can be seen in the film behind the wheel of the all-electric R8 e-tron sports car prototype. Oscar® winner Gwyneth Paltrow also returns as Virginia “Pepper” Potts, CEO of Stark Industries and girlfriend of Tony Stark, who drives an Audi S7 Sportback.

"We are thrilled to once again team up with our friends at Audi. With an extraordinary mix of style and cutting edge technology, these two global brands have always been a great fit!” said Bob Sabouni, EVP Worldwide Marketing Partnerships.

I like Audi cars because it looks interesting and conventional. When I read about Tony, I thought it was Tony Parker so I was thinking of Spiderman movie until I have seen the different title of the movie. It is nice and interesting that the Audi is included in the film too.
