For its latest R8 Spyder commercial, Audi has ingeniously tapped into one of the best spokesperson there is for an Audi R8– Tony Stark. As fans of Iron Man would recall, in the first movie, one of Tony Stark’s choice of ride is the Audi speed monster, the R8. In the second movie, Tony Stark is set to be riding the “Stark 11” Audi R8 V10 Spyder.
The new Audi commercial features footage from the trailer plus shots of Stark coasting along the highway in his white R8 V10 Spyder. For those who are not familiar with the specs, the Audi high performance sports car zips at 525HP, and features cutting-edge technology such as the Audi Space Frame which drastically reduces the weight of the car. Check out the commercial and begin your count down for Iron Man 2, which is set to hit theatres on May 7.
