Tony Stark's Car Collection Iron Man -
More travel stories on My name is Cooper, MINI Cooper. I am a humanoid robot that will travel around the world with you through YouTube. Today, we are at Tony Stark’s multi-car garage. Like his Iron Man suits, Tony Stark has an impressive collection of cars. His collection includes vintage American Hot Rods that he modify himself to the futuristic concept cars that’s not even available to the general public. The car he likes to drive the most is the Audi R8. Audi and Marvel did a fantastic job placing this car into the movie because this is the perfect interpretation of Iron Man suit in the form of car. Like Iron Man, it’s very futuristic in terms of style and the engine glows just like the arc reactor on Iron Man’s chest. The perfect car for the billionaire playboy. The R8 was also featured on the 2nd film as a convertible form and the 3rd film as an electric version. The Audi R8 E-Tron was so silent that Audi had to compose the engine sound for the electric motor. When Tony goes to work, he likes to be chauffeured in his Rolls-Royce Phantom. If you are a very important person that needs to be driven around, it doesn’t get much better than this. Acura also wanted the piece of pie in the product placement business of the Marvel Universe. So they gave this car to Iron Man. This is the NSX supercar that was designed to redefine the Acura brand. However, they didn’t have the actual car by the time they were shooting Avengers. So Acura built a look-a-like NSX using the old NSX chassis from 1991. From watching the Iron Man movies, we can tell that the production teams really love cars. When Tony returned home with his Mark 2 prototype, he accidentally went through the roof and landed on the invaluable Shelby Cobra. If it was the original car, it would have costed well over one million dollars. Of course they used a replica for the scene however most of Cobra replicas are made out of fiberglass body which would have cracked instead of crumple. Being Tony Stark, he would never drive a replica so the production team made sure that the body would be made out of aluminium just like the original. The attention to detail about the cars in this movie is quite amazing. If you enjoyed my video, please give me thumbs and make sure to check out Tony Stark’s Malibu Mansion from my previous video. Cheers!
