The Audi R8 and Iron Man

One Man. One Machine. One Mission.

The AudiR8 car was featured in the popular movie of 2008, Iron Man. It is a mid-engined sports car introduced by the German automaker Audi in 2007.

The first appearance of this car was in the year 2006, appearing at auto shows and events all over the world. Audi R8 is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform, as Audi has full ownership of subsidiary Lamborghini S.p.A.. Audi announced in 2005 that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new car road in 2007, the Audi R8, is based on the Audi Le Mans quattro car concept, which was based on the earlier Audi RSQ concept vehicle, appearing at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show and 2003 International Motor Show.

The R8 was launched officially at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There is some confusion with the name which the car shares with the Le Mans winning R8 LMP. Originally, many thought the car would be called the R9 (as there is a gap in numbering left when Audi announced the R8's successor, the diesel-powered R10).

Pricing for the R8 model starts at around €88,000, although in Ireland, due to high VRT, the base price of the R8 is about €160,000. The base price in the US is $109,000.
