									Audi R8 Performs with New Audi Brand Ambassador Hugh Jackman in Real Steel

Audi announced Hugh Jackman as their next brand ambassador at the recent premier for
his latest film from Disney, Real Steel. Taking the baton from superstar singer/actor
Justin Timberlake, Hugh Jackman says he is excited for his new role.

A Nice Fit for Audi
At the Real Steel premier, Jackman announced that he is very much looking forward to
this new partnership with Audi. He said he loves the brand and feels like “Audi
represents great quality.” Hugh Jackman showed up on the event in the latest model of
the Audi R8 which is featured in the film. When asked about the car, Jackman stated that
it is “cool and sexy”, and is a “nice fit for the film.” His only complaint was that the
traffic on the way to the premier was so thick he couldn’t drive the car quite as fast as he
would like.

As an Audi brand ambassador, Hugh Jackman will begin showing up in Audi marketing,
commercials, and at special events. The partnership is part of Audi’s strategy to set itself
apart as an exclusive luxury brand by teaming up with the most elite celebrities in the

Hugh Jackman is a native Australian and has performed in a wide variety of roles in
numerous films over the past decade. He has done daring roles like Wolverine in the X-
Men trilogy and the vampire hunter in Van Helsing, and Jackman is also well known for
his recent Broadway performances.

The Audi R8 Acting Career
Real Steel is not the Audi R8’s first Hollywood performance. The Audi R8 was also
featured in Iron Man and Iron Man 2 as Tony Stark’s vehicle of choice. With its
aggressively elegant sport styling and incredible driving performance, it is no wonder that
it is the car of choice for so many high-powered, high energy feature films. The latest
model of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro features an incredible V10 engine capable of
525hp. It roars from 0-60mph in just 3.7 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 196.4mph.
It also features a six-speed R Tronic transmission and FSI direct injection technology for
more controlled power and handling.

The 2012 Audi R8 houses all this power under a carbon fiber engine bay. Full daytime
LED lights surround the headlamps like fine jewelry, and the motor-sport inspired body
style is sleek, sexy, and sophisticated. The cockpit is race-inspired and offers all the
luxury comforts and necessary technologies California Audi drivers would expect from
the elite luxury brand. Each vehicle is carefully assembled by hand in Germany by an
expert Audi technician, making each R8 a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Luckily, you don’t have to be Hugh Jackman to get behind the wheel of Audi’s latest
supercar. Interested buyers can learn more about the Audi R8 for themselves at their
