New Audi A8 in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Before the new Audi A8 makes its world premier in Barcelona at the Audi Summit on 11 July, movie fans will be able to get an exclusive glimpse of the new model when it makes its on-screen debut later this month in the new Marvel blockbuster ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, writes Trish Whelan.

The luxury saloon will also make a guest appearance at the premiere of the film in Los Angeles on 28 June.

In the superhero blockbuster ‘Peter Parker’, played by Tom Holland, is seen being chauffeured around in the new Audi A8 L. The scene allows fans a first look of the front and side design of the new car. In addition, moviegoers also get a demo of new innovations such as highly automated driving in traffic jams demonstrated in the movie by driver ‘Happy Hogan’ (Jon Favreau) who takes his hands off the steering wheel allowing the car to turn all on its own showcasing how the A8 takes over the task of driving when the Audi AI traffic jam pilot function is turned on.

Two other Audi models also make guest appearances in this movie, the R8 V10 Spyder driven by Robert Downey Junior’s character ‘Tony Stark’ while the film’s hero ‘Peter Parker’ himself drives a TTS Roadster.

The A8 is not yet offered for purchase. It doesn’t yet have type approval.
