Audi's First Electric Supercar To Feature In IRON MAN 3
Parting ways for a custom Acura NSX in Marvel's The Avengers big assembly, an Iron Man 3 set photo has revealed playboy Tony Stark will be reunited with the Audi R8; the 1st all-electric one in fact!
Despite reports that Marvel's playboy billionaire Tony Stark will get a sleek new 2014 Bugatti Veyron for his third solo cinematic outing, a photo recently surfaced via GTSpirit, picturing Robert Downey Jr. on the Iron Man 3 set alongside his beloved Audi R8. However, this is no ordinary Audi. Judging by the graphic imprinted on its windshield, this is Audi's first Electric supercar, the R8 E-Tron. The supercar's inclusion in the Shane Black-directed movie is a actually a surprise because it was reported just days ago that Audi was cancelling plans to develop the all-electric R8 E-Tron for mass production. So, in a way, the Audi R8 E-Tron is being featured in Iron Man 3 exclusively.
Anyhow, this news doesn't exactly debunk reports that Stark will be seen behind the wheels of 2014 Bugatti Veyron. However, given that Tony parted ways with Audi for a customized Acura briefly in Marvel's The Avengers, it's great to know the two are being reunited. What do you think?
