There's no doubt that the Audi R8 is one bad car, and new images of a toy action figure for the upcoming Transformers movie Revenge of the Fallen proves that it's bad on the silver screen too... especially wearing a Decepticon badge on its posterior. According to various interweb reports, Audi's mid-engined supercar will take the form of Barricade in the highly-anticipated Transformers sequel, due in theaters on June 26th. We have no idea if this means that the Mustang won't be making a return appearance in the TF movie franchise, but if Bumblebee remains a Chevrolet Camaro as we expect, having a Ford Mustang across enemy lines just seems natural. That said, an epic battle between the Centennial Corvette Autobot and the Audi R8 Decepticon does seem rather appropriate. We'll just have to wait and see how this all plays out in a few months.
