During the recent filming of The Avengers in Central Park, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was spotted cruising around in an amazing-looking Acura for several scenes. As we looked closer at the photos, it became clear that this was no ordinary Acura. Then it was revealed on Auto Blog that Acura produced the vehicle specifically for The Avengers film.
A spokesman for Acura made the following announcement concerning the new ride.
“As you may know, Acura has been in the Marvel Comics Universe films as the official car of their fictional law enforcement agency called S.H.I.E.L.D. That relationship continues for The Avengers. The open-top sports car that was photographed yesterday is a one-off, fictional car that was made just for the movie and will not be produced. That said, as you may also know, our CEO has said publicly that we are studying the development of a new sportscar, but we can’t say any more about it at this time.”
What do you think of Tony Stark’s new ride?
Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers assemble in theaters on May 4, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Cobie Smulders.
