Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark driving an Audi R8 V10 Plus Coupe
Based on recent movies set in the Marvel universe Audi is one of the most popular brands among superheroes. Versions of the R8 have been a favorite of Tony Stark and automobiles from the manufacture are just about everywhere else.
The relationship continues with Captain America: Civil War. While the heroes are busy fighting each other they will have plenty of Audis to help them get from point to point (for those that don’t fly).
“Even as the mighty Avengers break into Civil War, their affinity for best-in class, high performance and state of the art technology in their vehicles ties them together,” said Loren Angelo, Director of Marketing, Audi of America. “Audi is excited to be a mainstay for the Marvel franchise and to support their cast of Super Heroes with a fleet of superior Audi vehicles.”
“We’re always trying to ride the line in these movies between something that is set in our real, present day world, but at the same time feels special and forward thinking – just a little out of reach. So to be able to work with a company like Audi and have access to their current models and their most advanced designs, it helps us strike that right balance between real world and the future.” says Anthony Russo, who directed the film along with his brother Joe Russo.
While Iron Man gets to enjoy the new Audi R8 V10 plus coupe, Captain America gets to debut the SQ7 SUV. The latter is also involved in a majors chase sequence in the movie.
Not only are the vehicles from the German luxury automaker featured throughout the film, but they also were featured on the red carpet for the film’s premier. You can see all of the action and these Audis starting on May 6th when Captain America: Civil War opens in US Theaters.
