Audi R8 gets Iron Man theme in London

Full-body wrapping seems to never get old and this Audi R8 owner decided to do the same by covering the entire body of his supercar in a color combination reminiscent of the Iron Man suit. The red and gold German supercar looks stunning as the color combo is mixed up with contrasting black alloy wheels and grilles. Before getting the Iron Man suit, the vehicle used to have an Ice Silver exterior paint scheme with carbon side blades.

If the man in the video looks familiar, that’s because he’s the one who managed to purchase a second hand Audi R8 for £50,000 with the money he made on YouTube where he uploaded videos of supercars seen in London. He is a 23-year-old student by the name of Paul Wallace who previously owned a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 and now upgraded to a supercar since he says he can afford one as he’s making up to £1,750 per month.

Another change brought to this Audi R8 is the installation of an Armytrix exhaust system which enables the naturally-aspirated V8 4.2-liter engine to provide a special soundtrack especially during a high-revving session. This exhaust system comes with a remote control which controls the valves in the exhaust, allowing the driver to select from auto (valves are opened under 50 percent depression of the accelerator pedal), a normal mode and a loud setting which grants a ferocious noise.
