On the set with The Avengers

Next summer, when The Avengers hits theaters, moviegoers will be a seeing a lot of Acuras and that’s because the brand has been in the Marvel Comics Universe films as the official car of the fictional law enforcement agency called S.H.I.E.L.D.

As comic fans very well know, Iron Man Tony Stark is a part of the Avengers and he will indeed be getting rid of his Audi R8 for a new Acura convertible sports car. We’re pretty sure that Nick Fury (played by Samuel L. Jackson) didn’t want to disappoint one of the sponsors of the S.H.I.E.L.D., in turn making Stark give up his Audi for an Acura.

Our take? The Acura doesn’t look bad at all. In fact it seems to have many touches of the Audi R8 itself with a little bit of Aston Martin One-77 in the back.

Hit the jump for a sneak peek at The Avengers.

    The R8 was an R8 and this Acura is something fictitious. Too bad Marvel went with Acura but I am sure Acura paid a pretty penny! heh

    Didn’t they release that concept, oh I dunno, 4 years ago…

    The only difference is they lowered the stance and added the milk mustache grill.  C’mon Acura…
