Audi R8 e-tron in Iron Man 3

If you believe every car news site on the planet, Audi is said to have pulled the plug on its record-breaking R8 e-tron model, claiming that it will never see mass production, with just a handful being built for internal use.

So, you can imagine our surprise to see this image of said car – along with a certain Robert Downey Jr – appearing on Audi of America’s official Instagram page, accompanied by the caption: ‘The world’s greatest Super Hero @Iron_Man & greatest supercar are back together & better than ever in 2013! #IronMan3’.

Looking back, the previous two movies have seen Tony Stark behind the wheel of an R8 Coupe and an R8 Spyder, so we don’t see why Audi would want to put such a vehicle as the R8 e-tron on a global pedestal – without making it available to the public.
