Audi drops Captain America: Civil War clip featuring Black Panther and the 2017 SQ7

Audi – “The Chase”
2008’s Iron Man was adored by most superhero fans and moviegoers, but for car enthusiasts, the best part of the film had nothing to do with Tony Stark’s suit or the incredible effects. It was rather Iron Man’s car — the Audi R8 — which garnered our petrol-fueled gazes, but that was just the beginning of the Audi-Marvel relationship.

The automaker’s products have been featured in nearly every Earth-bound Marvel picture since, and for Captain America: Civil War, the brand will have an even larger presence. The blockbuster will feature the 2017 Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe, the 2017 A4, the 2016 A7 Sportback, and the 2017 Audi SQ7, the last of which the company is highlighting in the exclusive Civil War clip shown above.

The clip, entitled “The Chase,” shows Captain America (Chris Evans) engaging in a superhuman footrace against series newcomer Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who is attempting to apprehend the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). A family riding in a 2017 SQ7 is caught up in the action, and the fleet of police vehicles in tow are all Audi products as well.

“We’re always trying to ride the line in these movies between something that is set in our real, present-day world, but at the same time feels special and forward thinking — just a little out of reach,” said Civil War director Anthony Russo. ”So to be able to work with a company like Audi and have access to their current models and their most advanced designs, it helps us strike that right balance between real world and the future.”

The Audi Prologue concept car — which debuted back at the 2014 LA Auto Show — will also be showcased in the movie as Black Panther’s vehicle of choice … when he’s not running, that is. Captain America: Civil War comes out in the U.S. on May 6.

Why your EV’s voltage matters, and what it means for your car’s charging speed

Electric cars are slowly, but surely becoming commonplace, and they introduce a whole new generation of specifications that are worth caring about. Range is an obvious one -- but there's another metric that has a major impact on the overall experience of owning an electric car: voltage.

You'll often see the voltage of an electric car's battery pack touted in advertising. Hyundai, for instance, is proud of the 800 -volt battery in cars like the EV6 -- that's double the voltage of the 400V battery in the Tesla Model Y.

Why you should buy the Milwaukee M18 Inflator
First and foremost, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator provides an easy way for you to inflate your tires in a pinch or awkward situation. It is particularly great for the tires of riding lawnmowers. They tend to be awkward to get to the gas station or other place where you traditionally inflate tires and would be a pain to hand inflate. Usage of the machine is simple. Insert an M18 Milwaukee battery, set the desired PSI for the deflated tire, connect to the tire and wait until it is done inflating. The Milwaukee M18 Inflator will stop pumping air automatically once the ideal PSI is achieved. When you're done, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator is small and easy to tuck away, being about the size of a lunchbox.
