Iron Man - Behind the scenes for Audi R8 Stunt
Director Jon Favreau had planned for the Audi R8 to be used in a final scene by being involved in a dramatic collision with Iron Man's wicked adversary. This had to be omitted from the final cut, Director Jon Favreau explains: "The crash just wasn't spectacular enough! Our stunt specialists did their best to turn the R8 over onto its roof, which would have given us a dramatic final scene, but they failed -- the car clung to the road too well!"
Jon Favreau, Producer Kevin Feige and John Armstrong, Picture Car Coordinator, give an impression of their efforts.

The Audi R8 (Typ 42) is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car, which uses Audi's trademark quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. It was introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006.
The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH, and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform. The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame, and uses an aluminium monocoque which is built around space frame principles. The car is built by quattro GmbH in a newly renovated factory at Audi's 'aluminium site' at Neckarsulm in Germany.
In 2005, Audi announced that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new road car in 2007, the Audi R8, based on the Audi Le Mans quattro concept car, appearing at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show, and 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There was some confusion with the name, which the car shares with the 24 Hours of Le Mans winning R8 Le Mans Prototype (LMP). 6-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx described the R8 as "the best handling road car today". The Audi R8 is used as a safety car in Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters and British Superbike Championship racing series.
The R8 is due to be replaced with a brand new model in calendar year 2014. The highest output version of Audi's new 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine is expected to power the new car. This engine is scheduled to be previewed as a detuned version in the 2012 Audi S8—with 518 hp (386 kW) on tap. In the R8 application it is expected to produce about 600 hp. Combined with an approximate 200 lb (91 kg) weight loss, the new R8 is expected to compete well with the new Porsche 997 twin turbo model and will likely perform significantly better than the current R8 GT with a 0--60 mph time in 3.2 seconds and a quarter mile in less than 11 seconds. A dual clutch automated gearbox will be offered for the first time.

Audi R8 V10 Spyder --LIMITED EDITION--
This video is of a rare Audi R8 V10 spyder that was at the 2010 Cleveland Auto Show. I was talking to the hot model that was watching the car. She knew everything about the car that I could possibly think of and when I asked her about production quantity, she said that the R8 V10 Spyder sitting in front of us was one of the 2 or 3 hundred that were actually coming to the US. This car looked awesome, I just wish I could have sat in it. This car does have the de-tuned Lamborghini V-10 in it.
