In the highly anticipated third installment in the Iron Man film franchise, Tony Stark gets around town in a machine almost as fine-tuned as his Iron Man armor -- namely, the Audi R8 e-tron. Powered by an electric motor mounted on each wheel, the R8 e-tron first debuted at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, followed by years of speculation whether the vehicle would ever see production. Its high-profile appearance in Iron Man 3 is just one indication that the development program of the all-electric coupe has resumed in earnest, with production models "in limited numbers" expected to roll off factory floors in the near future. In the meantime, check out the just released Audi R8 e-tron commercial for Iron Man 3, which can be seen in its entirety below.
