Audi S8 pre-facelift featured in Transporter: Refueled

A pre-facelift Audi S8 will be on the forefront of Transporter: Refueled, the fourth installment in the successful franchise. The movie is actually a prequel as the action takes place before the first Transporter movie but the producers decided to use an Audi S8 pre-facelift which came out in the spring of 2012 so their model of choice is not chronologically accurate.

Transporter: Refueled stars Ed Skrein who plays the role of a young Frank Martin while Jason Statham is no longer featured in the movie, even though he was the star of the first three movies. Those who have minimal knowledge about the Audi S8 know the car comes equipped with an all-wheel drive quattro system but that doesn’t seem to be the case for the vehicle featured in the movie which seems to be doing a lot of drifting which in the real life would be impossible with an AWD car.

Scheduled to air on June 19, Transporter: Refueled is a reboot of the series and we remind you in the original movie Jason Statham drove a BMW 7-Series (generation E38) and an Audi S8 W12 in the two sequels.
