Marvel Cinematic Universe has released its newest Avengers movie franchise — Avengers: Endgame on Wednesday. The original Avengers cast teams up, hopefully not for the last time, for the much-anticipated movie’s premiere in Los Angeles.
One of the movie’s main stars, Robert Downey Jr., rolled up to the premiere in a concept car suited for Tony Stark himself: the new Audi E-Tron GT.
Audi unveiled the E-Tron GT last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It boasts of a 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack and 582 horsepower (434 kilowatts) on tap. It also charges fast (zero to 80 percent in 20 minutes) and has wireless charging capabilities (at 11 kilowatts). Audi says the E-Tron GT has an estimated range of 250 miles (400 kilometers) on the WLTP test cycle.
With all its incredible features, the E-Tron GT becomes the perfect ride for Tony Stark. “It has all the tech you’d expect, and the performance to match,” Motor1 wrote.
Other Audi vehicles are expected to be featured in Avengers: Endgame. Audi just released an ad featuring Tony Stark teaching Captain Marvel about modern technology and showing off the new E-Tron crossover in the process.
