New Will Smith movie teases the new Audi R8

The trailer for Will Smith’s new animated comedy Spies in Disguise may have just revealed the design for the new Audi R8 e-tron.

Smith stars alongside Tom Holland, Karen Gillan and Rashida Jones as the voice of Lance Sterling – a smooth, James Bond-like super spy who we see in the trailer driving what looks like an Audi RSQ e-tron concept car.

It wouldn’t be the first time the German manufacturer has inserted one of its cars into a popular film – back in 2004 Will Smith was seen driving a futuristic Audi in I, Robot, which turned out to be a sneak preview of the real life Audi R8 that arrived a few years later.

Robert Downey Jr. was also seen driving an Audi R8 V10 Spyder while playing a billionaire tech genius in 2008’s Iron Man. The Audi R8 e-tron makes an appearance in both Iron Man sequels.
