Iron Man blows up a lot of cars, but he also has a lot of really cool ones sitting in his garage. At the same time, his collection is a bit unoriginal, don't you think? A Shelby Cobra, a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, some assorted supercars... meh. I'll tell you who does it better: the man who plays him in real life,…
Audi has some very obvious product placement in Iron Man, which means that Audi's DTM (German touring car) race crew in Germany gets these Iron Man-style suits for their races.
Tony Stark is a man of wealth and taste. He likes cars that are obscenely fast and ludicrously expensive, like the Audi R8 and the Saleen S7. But when he dons his Iron Man suit, cars get blown up. Specifically, his cars. And other people's cars. Also military equipment, aliens, and his enemies, but especially cars.
Whether he's blowing stuff up as Iron Man or whipping his race car around Monaco, Tony Stark is nobody's bitch. And of course, he has excellent taste in automobiles.
The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 dropped yesterday, and I had two major takeaways from it: First, the movie looks like it's going to be insanely awesome. Second, Tony Stark has apparently ended his dalliance with Acura and gone back to his first love, Audi.
While talking about her speculated multimillion-dollar net worth, Gabby Douglas professed her desire for a white AcuraNSX roadster, just like the one in The Avengers. What, no R8?
Iron Man gave up his trademark R8 for an Acura NSX droptop in The Avengers, and it looks like Audi feels bitter about it. Why else would they diss the fictional character's ride on Twitter?
Iron Man 2 mostly served as a reminder that Tony Stark is kind of a dick, a sentiment The Avengers will only reinforce when Stark arrives in this poorly disguised Acura NSX replacement. It's another reminder to Acura's fanboys they'll probably never get one. Handsome dick.

Audi's Iron Man sponsorship tie-up continues with Tony Stark adding an Audi R8 V10 Spyder to his garage along with a chauvinistic tagline for the second movie. Because, you know, a multi-billionaire superhero needs a car to get laid.
Along with more footage of Tony Stark's psuedo-F1 racer getting Whiplashed a la the first Iron Man 2 Trailer, this behind-the-scenes footage shows a new Rolls-Royce getting spanked on the Circuit de Monaco. Oh, and Scarlett Johansson.
Folks, this is it. The first trailer for Iron Man 2. Watch carnage taken to a whole new level — like Tony Stark's "F1 car" getting whipped in half by a very perturbed-looking Whiplash played by Mickey Rourke. Awesome.
Apparently there's a need for Tony Stark to have a race car in Iron Man 2 and spy shooters have spotted the "Stark Industries" sponsored race car on a recreated Monaco circuit built in California.
So we hear Speed Racer kind of sucked, which despite our fervent wishes otherwise, we kind of guessed after watching those damned trailers. In fact, depending on which studio numbers you used, came in either in 2nd place or 3rd place this past weekend, behind the juggernaut that is Iron Man and the silly romantic…
Having driven both the Audi R8 and the Audi Q7, we have to say that although we enjoy driving both, Iron Man Director and Producer Jon Favreau goes a little over the top talking about these two beautiful babies. Yes indeed folks, the theatrical release of Iron Man is just days away and the marketing machine is kicking…
