What's powerful, innovative, and engineered to amaze? The Audi R8 e-tron. So too is Tony Stark, or Iron Man, for those not well versed in Marvel Comics and movies. That's why it makes sense the title character drives new Audi models throughout the franchise. This time, the superhero is going electric, cruising in the R8 e-tron sports car for the third installment of the saga.
The R8 e-tron has the ability to regenerate partial power when it coasts or brakes, which might sound like a superpower, but, like Iron Man, is a byproduct of the most innovative technology out there. The electric car recently set a lap time record at the Nurburgring, one of the most difficult tracks in the world, and can zip from zero-to-sixty in 4.6 seconds.
That's possible with the help of a 49 kWh lithium-ion battery that pumps out 280 kW, which is comparable to 375 horsepower, and can ride for 133 miles on a single charge. Not to mention you're riding in one of the most stylish sports cars on the market today, with plenty of luxurious enhancements inside.
