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.
As previously reported, the R8 serves as the personal ride of technology-loving inventor Tony Stark. What we still don’t know, however, is whether he'll opt for the R8’s 5.2-liter V-10 or all-electric e-tron powertrain. In addition to the R8, also expect to see the 2015 TTS and 2015 A3 Cabriolet in the new movie.
Avengers: Age of Ultron, which stars the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth, lands in theaters May 1.
