In the past two installments of Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., aka Tony Stark, never hid his affinity for the Audi R8.

But thanks to Marvel Studio’s recent partnership with Acura, it looks like our favorite billionaire playboy is turning over his Audi digs for an Acura sports car that, quite frankly, we’ve never seen before.

Acura began appearing in Thor and Captain America as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s official official chose of brand. With the collaboration movie - the Avenges - currently filming in New York, it appears that Acura has allowed the studio to use a mysterious car that has yet been given any information on.

When asked by Autoblog about the matter, the automaker responded that the mystery car is a one-off make that’s neither a concept nor a production model.

"The open-top sports car that was photographed yesterday is a one-off, fictional car that was made just for the movie and will not be produced," Acura’s Gary Robinson said.

Judging from the looks of the car, it does remind us a little bit of the R8 in terms of its overall shape. And to be honest about it, we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing this car in concept guise. Better yet, let’s have it built for production!

Great lining in the bumper. The style of this car is good in the performance of this car. This car is still in the market? kindly update the pricing of this car.

Impressive car! The design is plain but the style is great! The color pure black in the car is great specially in the sports car like this.

It is highly likely that this is the next NSX. There is and there isn’t a market for it hence why its production was halted earlier this year. Although there is rumor that we are going to see a production model soon and this cameo by what looks like a concept model might be enough to get a following and give Acura the confidence to start producing this once ahead of its time sports car. Fingers crossed

I’m really impressed with the performance and style of the Acura car. No wonder why super heroes choose this car to be their official ride!

This is such a waste! I really don’t think that Acura is dumb enough to built a car that there’s no possible market.

I really like the Acura more than the Audi. I don’t think that Audi is good compare to BMW! BTW, when it comes to the production of this car, I agree that Acure wouldn’t waste their money and effort to built this vehicle. For sure they know that there will no market on this car!

Oh! I didn’t know that Acura is the official ride of these superheroes! Well, I guess Acura is not that stupid to build a million dollar car for this blockbuster movie. I think there’s no chance for the production of this vehicle.
