The producers of Iron Man 3 undoubtedly have the No. 24 Audi RS5 DTM car driven by Adrien Tambay at last week's Hockenheim round to thank for the movie's record-breaking global opening. Not only was Tambay's car wrapped to be a high-speed billboard for the movie, the entire team dressed in Iron Man-themed race suits made by partner Alpinestars and wore themed helmets from Uvex. What other reason could there be?

To make sure that all of Earth's residents at least get to hear about the movie, Tambay's team will be donning the livery again at the Brands Hatch round on May 19. There's a miniature press release below, along with a video of the crew hamming it up - as you would do when you get the chance to drive one of the few Audis that might be cooler than Tony Stark's.

Iron Man Tambay attracts attention

May 5, 2013 -- A touch of Hollywood wafted through the air of the DTM paddock at Hockenheim last weekend. On the occasion of the "Iron Man 3" movie's start in Germany, Adrien Tambay advertised the latest Marvel action film on his Audi RS 5 DTM. Audi Sport's partner Alpinestars produced special overalls for the youngster and his pit crew featuring an Iron Man look and Uvex supplied the matching helmets. In the race at Brands Hatch (Great Britain) on May 19, Adrien Tambay will be on the grid sporting the Iron Man look once more.

      It's too bad the movie was so average.

        I have to agree. I was pretty disappointed. They telegraphed the plot in the first 15 minutes and then it was an Audi commercial disguised as a boilerplate comic action hero movie. Fortunately for them, they have weak competition at the box office.

      Firstly, thanks for the week-old video. Secondly, if Audi spent less time schmoozing with comic book hero filmmakers and more time developing its DTM cars then it wouldn't be fighting for fourth and fifth places each race. 'OK, we're pretty crap in DTM, but we're pushing promo videos with Robert Downey Jr in them, so please buy our cars...'

      If Iron Man did take over, then he would have jumped into the driver's seat and raced.
