7 Movies That Made You Want to Buy an Audi
If you're a die-hard Audi fan, then you definitely need to watch these movies!
1. I, Robot
Will Smith is an incredible actor, but to some Audi enthusiasts, the real star of the 2004 film I, Robot was the Audi RSQ. Fulfilling its product placement role, the concept car totally sold us on what cars may look like in the year 2035. The RSQ had ample time on the screen in its exquisite, untouched state leading up to the memorable tunnel chase scene where dozens of robots attack. But the RSQ came out ahead when Smith's character engaged manual override, proving that everyone will want an Audi come the day that evil robots turn on us. Check out the tunnel scene clip from the movie here.
2. Transporter 3
When Jason Statham's character in Transporter 3 gets chased down by three armed men in a Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the scene that ensues is nothing short of explosive – literally. The Audi A8 W12 dominates the road from the get-go, from that epic first burn out, to driving on two wheels between big rig trucks, to going off-road entirely before skidding to a controlled stop and avoiding a deadly plunge off a cliff. The E-Class isn't as lucky. Watch the entire clip here.
3. Captain America: Civil War
It's been said that Captain America: Civil War is like one long Audi commercial. Audi's to make appearances were the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus, 2017 Audi SQ7, 2017 A4, 2016 A7 Sportback and even the Prologue Show Car. Audi basically made it impossible to walk out of the theater not wanting to buy one of their cars!
4. Iron Man 1, 2, 3
Did you know that Audi's have been featured in all three Iron Man films? The 2007 Audi R8 and S5 B8 appeared in the original film, the 2009 Audi A8 LD3 and 2010 R8 Spyder were in Iron Man 2, and we saw the 2012 Audi S7 and R8 e-tron in the third film. Whether or not Iron Man will end as a trilogy, it's safe to say that the Audi will be Tony Stark's car of choice if there is a fourth installment.
The 2008 action film Taken, starring Liam Neeson, followed a retired CIA agent hell-bent on saving his kidnapped daughter. Of course, an Audi A3 Sportback Quattro was the only car fit for the job, and it looked damn good flying through Paris on its mission to save the girl.
6. Hitman: Agent 47
The movie Hitman: Agent 47 flew under everyone's radar last summer, but if you happened to see it in theaters, there's no doubt you enjoyed the abundance of screen time the Audi RS7 got. This movie proves once again that Audi is the perfect getaway car, delivering high-performance, high-intensity outcomes. Watch the Audi in all its glory in the trailer here.
7. Fifty Shades of Grey
How many of you got dragged to the theater by your girlfriend to see Fifty Shades of Grey? You were probably sitting there, reluctantly eating your popcorn, thinking, "I hope I don't have to end this relationship after this movie." Luckily, Universal Pictures thought to partner with Audi yet again for this film, which made sense seeing as how it was one of the most talked about movies of 2015. The saving grace of the movie for unwilling boyfriends across the globe was undoubtedly when an Audi A3 sedan, followed by an Audi R8, appeared on screen many times. If you're dreading having to see the sequel, don't worry; you'll be rewarded when Christian Grey's Audi R8 makes an appearance in Fifty Shades Darker.
