Audi On The Silver Screen

In the world of all things Audi, we spend a lot of time looking forward. Not only do we have the Q2 and Q8 set to hit the market in the very near future, but the most powerful TT ever produced was just launched last month.

But let’s look back on the fantastic German-engineered machines that have taken to the silver screen and made us remember why Audis are so special:

#1 Fleet Shuttle Quattro (Ender’s Game)

It’s no surprise that Audi’s forward-thinking and precision engineering make them a perfect match for science fiction films. 2013’s Ender’s Game featured a first for Audi – Harrison Ford was filmed driving a (real) A7 Sportback, which was used as a placeholder for the Shuttle Quattro, a completely digitally-rendered car created by Audi and Digital Domain, a VFX studio. The result is a stunning, futuristic design that definitely looks like it belongs 75 years into the future.

#2 Audi RSQ Appears In I-Robot

1. RSQ (I, Robot)

This sleek, futuristic concept car took a starring role in 2004’s I, Robot, and was responsible for showing an entire generation of millennials just how gorgeous Audis can be. Will Smith’s Spooner always opts to drive his RSQ in ‘manual’ instead of autopilot, using it to narrowly escape hoards of intelligent robots. It’s still a well-recognised and memorable car design, over 10 years later, partly due to its unmistakable contemporary front grille.

#3 S8 (Transporter Refuelled)

Back in present-day Earth, the Audi S8 took centre-stage in 2015’s Transporter Refuelled, serving as a breathtakingly quick getaway car. All the Audi checks are in place: over 500bhp, Twin-Turbo, V8 engine. Coupled with the fact it was turned into a rear-wheel-drive stunt beast, the S8 could drift, burn, and smoke in all the right places. The scene in which Ed Skrien drives the S8 into an airport forever makes lugging suitcases without an Audi just seem... silly.

#4 SQ7 (Captain America: Civil War)

It’s nice to know even superheroes look to Audi to get them from A to B. The sporty SUV SQ7 plays a major role in Civil War, transporting Captain America to an intense brawl between Black Panther and The Winter Soldier. Unfortunately the SQ7 ends up as collateral damage, but it’s a beauty to see – and hear – while it lasts.

Do you know of any more ? Why not add them to the list it only takes a couple of minutes...
