The newest Avengers movie is set to debut on May 1, and cars worthy of their superhero drivers will be joining Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and more on the silver screen.
A press release from Audi, as well as a video published to YouTube today, unveiled a new extended trailer for the movie, as well as the first preview of Marvel’s newest film hero. The Audi R8, TTS and A3 Cabriolet will all have an appearance in the film, putting their agility, performance and, of course, speed to the test under impossible circumstances.
Although the character of Tony Stark may hold some strong similarities to real-world Elon Musk, it’s not a Tesla that he opts to drive. The redesigned 2016 R8 is his chosen mode of transport for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and with its upgraded V10 Plus producing 610 hp, there’s no questions as to why. A top speed of 205.1 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds can definitely come in handy when outrunning an artificial intelligence program that’s determined to see humanity go extinct.
In honor of this upcoming movie, Audi has created a special microsite where they will be releasing exclusive content from the film over the course of the next month. The first piece of digital content is the video above, which also features a sneak peek at the latest Marvel superhero to take on Hollywood: Ant-Man.
Starring Paul Rudd, “Ant-Man” is scheduled to be released July 17. Be sure to check out this special release above, and find yourself the perfect Audi to match Tony Stark’s at the button below.
