Get a Preview of the 2018 Audi A8 in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

While we’re always prepared to show you our new Audi cars, we have to wait to show you the new 2018 Audi A8 just yet because it won’t arrive at Audi dealerships until late 2017 or early 2018. Although we have to wait a few more months for the new Audi A8 to make it to our Audi dealership, you can get a preview of the redesigned flagship sedan in the blockbuster, “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

In the movie, the new Audi A8 is equipped with the latest in future AI technology. This technology includes the Audi AI Traffic Jam Pilot that “Happy Hogan” uses to chauffeur “Peter Parker” around town. When “Happy Hogan” removes his hands from the steering wheel, the Audi A8 continues to turn on its own, which may be a sign that the new Audi A8 will have some semi-autonomous driving features. When a driver activates the feature, the Audi AI Traffic Jam Pilot is designed to enable the sedan to take over driving for brief periods if the vehicle is traveling under a certain rate of speed.

“With ‘Spiderman-Man: Homecoming’ and our continued partnership with Marvel, we have the opportunity to reach the next generation of both superheroes and innovators,” said Loren Angelo, Vice President of Marketing, Audi of America. “At Audi, we are constantly redefining what superpowers are through our vehicles, and this partnership and platform provide an organic way for us to showcase select current and future Audi Intelligent Technologies to that next generation audience that will be behind the wheel of our next generation models.”

While we’re thrilled the new 2018 Audi A8 is featured in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” we can’t wait for it to arrive at our Audi dealership near Van Nuys, CA. We also can’t wait to see you behind the wheel of a new Audi vehicle. Visit Keyes Audi to take your favorite 2017 Audi vehicle or a 2018 model for a test drive today!
