Tie-ins between Audi and Iron Man have been a great way for Ingolstadt to emphasize its engineering theme, and cars like the R8 and also the S5, S7 and A8 depending on the movie.

The first trailer was released today and it certainly seems as if there’s some Audi presence.

While Americans may not get the blister-flared Audi RS 4 Avant or precious few Avants for that matter, those of us in the States still do get the A4 allroad. Given its wagon shape and its own flared allroad style body kit, this particular car has proven a favorite on the Audi enthusiast scene despite it’s rather conservatively powered 2.0 TFSI only engine status.
