Audi R8 Spyder in Iron Man 2 – Click above to watch video after the jump

We're officially counting down the days until Iron Man 2 hits theaters on May 7. The sequel to one of our favorite superhero flicks is set to boast a serious cast, including performances by Don Cheadle and Micky Rourke. Speaking of those two, the actors will be bringing two of the best characters from the Iron Man universe to life – War Machine and Whiplash. Oh yes. It will be good.

Of course, one of the best parts of watching Robert Downey Jr. play the part of spoiled playboy Tony Stark is drooling over the guy's bachelor pad/garage. We would give unmentionable portions of our anatomy to have our very own holographic drafting table and pint-sized manufacturing facility stashed downstairs. You can go ahead and throw in the flathead '32 roadster while you're at it.

Audi has once again teamed up with Marvel for Iron Man 2. A new ad from the company shows off the R8 Spyder as one of Stark's main rides, which makes sense considering the car was spotted on the set not too long ago. As if we needed another reason to be jealous. Hit the jump to see the spot for yourself.

      hard to say but it's true. I prefer the suit to the car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Yeah, I'd give up a necessary body part to have a Garage/Workshop Like Tony's, even w/o the cars.

      I can think of much cooler cars....a Audi is so typical...no thought needed.

      How about the LFA? Just the sound alone will grab everyones attention...not to mention the car looks kinda on the evil side. What about the 599 GTO?

      The R8 is a cool car dont get me wrong...but i want to see more interesting cars playing roles in movies.

      Ok, I was about to go see IM2 because i like the first one. This commercialization just make me hate it a bit more. Though I'm still gonna see it :)

      I got to admit that Iron Man was a great movie, it was not trying to hard like transformers and there was no need for a hot chick like Megan Fox although I dont have a problem with that.

        Well, I'd have to say Gwyneth Paltrow was rather beautiful in the first Ironman. Of course, she's not a "hot chick", but it's nice that Ironman didn't draw too much on sexuality to sell the movie (aside from Tony Stark's romp with reporter Christine Everhart).
