Last night, April 30, 2008, Audi hit the red carpet at the premiere of Iron Man, the summer blockbuster from Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios due in theaters May 2. Celebrities arrived at the event in a fleet of Audi R8's, Audi Q7 SUV's and A8L sedans. Tony Stark's car (played by Robert Downey Jr.), the Audi R8, was also on display on the red carpet.
The following stars drove to Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater in the exclusive Audi R8, which still has a 2-year waitlist: Jeff Bridges, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau and Terence Howard. Gwyneth Paltrow arrived in an Audi A8L W12 sedan, and Jack Black, Leslie Bibb and Vince Vaughn were escorted in Audi Q7's.
Following the film, the stars enjoyed the festive Audi-sponsored after party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Earlier in the day, a motorcade of 10 police-escorted Audi R8's blitzed the Los Angeles area, the greatest number of R8's ever to be driven together in the U.S. The vehicles started in downtown Los Angeles and circulated throughout Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westwood, and Brentwood, ending at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
