When Not Saving the World, Here’s What the Avengers Drove in the MCU
Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) created an entire world of superheroes who fought all over the world. But they had to use different ways of transportation to get there. Here, we’ll cover some of the cars the Avengers drove in the Infinity Saga.

Having some of the most famous comic book superheroes in the world, the MCU is no stranger to great cars. They introduced them right from Phase One, and marveled us with some vintage models straight from 2008’s Iron Man.

Since everyone knows Tony Star was the epitome of richness (he auto describes in Avengers as “genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist"), and his kind of people stores a lot of impressive vehicles. Stark fits the description all too well, and his garage includes a long list of luxury and classic cars, like the 1932 Ford Flathead Roaster, a Saleen S7 and 1967 Shelby Cobra, but also a Tesla Roadster.

We also see Stark drive an Audi R8 as he rolls up to a charity event and to the airport before flying to Afghanistan. Fans all around decided this is his top-choice, and it looks like Audi is top brand the lead member of the Avengers prefers, and his license plate read Stark 4, a later model has Stark 11.

Some of the other cars he’s driven or shown in his garage are a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Bugatti Veyron SS, a 1949 Mercury Cupe, a 1953 Ghia Cadillac, a 1978 Wolf WR Ford Replica and an Acura NSX, in which he drives off with Bruce Banner at the end of the first Avengers movie.

During Avengers: Endgame, Stark arrived at the Avenger’s facility in an Audi E-Tron GT, showing his taste in cars evolves the same way technology does. Among other Audi models he’s had are an Audi R8 Spyder and two versions of the E-Tron, white and red.

We must remember Stark wasn’t the only rich guy we have among the superheroes, and Dr. Stephen Strange got his powers thanks (or due to) a car accident. Smug and confident, he takes his Lamborghini Huracán Coupé to the limit on narrow cliffs roads in his self-titled movie. That results him in a near-death experience that leaves him paralyzed before becoming the master of mystical and martial arts.



Loki's getaway car from the S.H.I.E.L.D facility with the Tesseract in the 2012’ The Avengers is a Hummer H3T. The off-roader is exposed at the Hollywood Star Cars Museum, and you can see it along life-sized figures of the beloved Avengers.

Since fighting alien villains isn’t a well-paid job, at the beginning of his career as Ant-Man, Scott Langs hangs around in a 1972 Ford Econoline which his former cellmate, Luis, owns. The pickup truck makes an appearance in Avengers: Endgame, and it’s the nest of several criminal activities, but also the key to traveling to the Quantum Realm. Talk about iconic.

Nick Fury, director at S.H.I.E.L.D., drives a 2019 Infiniti QX50 in the post-credits of Avengers: Infinity War, in a crucial scene where he pages Captain Marvel before being turned to dust.



A notable mention would be the Harley Davidson LiveWire that Scarlett Johannson’s character, Black Widow, rides in Avengers: Age of Ultron during a battle. Back when the movie was released in 2015, the electric motorcycle was just a concept, and it was available for fans who could afford it in 2020.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 features a Ford Mustang II King Cobra, and Ant-Man and the Wasp has the 2019 Hyundai Veloster. Black Widow drives a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in Black Panther, we see T’Challa sit on top of a technologically-advanced Lexus LC500 that his sister, Shuri, operates from afar. We also see a 1995 Chevrolet Impala SS in Captain Marvel.

So far, the Avengers liked to roll in a mix of luxurious and vintage cars, some of them were quite interesting and fun. While we haven’t covered all of them, or all their means of transportation, it’s exciting to see what’s more to come in the upcoming Phases, and Lexus will play a big part in the upcoming Marvel movie, The Eternals.
