In a span of two minutes and thirty-one seconds, we not only catch a glimpse of Audi’s R8 e-tron electric vehicle in the new “Iron Man 3” trailer, but also its unfortunate destruction.

The gorgeous concept car – which the automaker may or may not throw into limited production – reportedly has a range somewhere around 150 miles, can go from 0-60 in less than five seconds, and will cost north of $118,000. Which for playboy billionaire Tony Stark is a small price to pay for such cool wheels.

Of course, this isn’t the first time “Iron Man” has given an electric vehicle a cameo. Back in 2008, the fledgling Tesla Motors brand scored a nice placement in the first film – an apparent nod to Robert Downey Jr. basing his character on founder Elon Musk.

“Musk, 38, is a rocket scientist,” wrote director Jon Favreau in a 2010 article for Time.com. “He designed the Falcon 9 booster that may serve as NASA’s next vehicle to transport cargo and humans into space. He is also a green pioneer. He helped create Solar City, the largest provider of solar power systems in the U.S. And he designed the Tesla, one of the first electric cars of the modern era. Bob Lutz, the vice chairman of General Motors, credits him with catalyzing GM to move toward electric cars.”

Check out the trailer below.
