From Marvel's press release:
Tony continues to redesign and evolve his classic armor, just like Audi improved its R8 for 2016. In Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Tony’s newest Audi R8 features a 5.2-litre-V10 engine, ceramic brakes with brake discs made of carbon fibre-reinforced-ceramics, and quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, proving Tony’s taste are as superior as his vehicular decisions!
Audi continues partnership with Marvel Entertainment for May 1 release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron
Featured models include the all-new 2016 R8, 2015 TTS and 2015 A3 Cabriolet
We recently told you that a fleet of new Audis, including the all-new R8 supercar, will appear in the upcoming movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. What we didn’t know at the time was that the R8 used for filming was actually the previous-generation model and not the new one that made its debut last month at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
To ensure they have the latest version of the R8 for the movie, however, the development team will use computer wizardry to make the previous model look like the new one, reveals executive producer Jeremy Latcham in the video above. That shouldn’t be much of a problem for the team as one of the movie’s main characters, the Hulk, is pretty much completely rendered using CGI.
