On May 3rd, Iron Man 3 is set for theaters across the nation. If you've paid attention to the previous two films, you'd know that the man behind the mask, Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey, Jr., drives a new Audi vehicle in each one. The latest installment is no different, as the Audi R8 e-tron will make an appearance as Iron Man's ride.

 

The all-electric vehicle boasts a 49 KWh lithium-ion battery and has a driving distance of 133 miles. But, as you might suspect, the Audi sports car has plenty of power. The R8 e-tron churns out 280 kW, which is the equivalent of 375 horsepower, while it is also capable of going from zero-to-sixty in 4.6 seconds.

 

And, with the ability to partially recharge when coasting or braking, this technological, stylish, and performance-ready electric sports car is a perfect match for Iron Man.

 

So while you wait for Iron Man 3 to break records at the box office, much like the R8 e-tron did at the Nurburgring, we encourage you to stay up to date with the latest news and dealership happenings on the Audi Escondido blog
