Jon Favreau: We talked a lot with Audi and looked where the enemy does with Audi Q7 which he actually did. Well, we have a family being lifted up in the Q7 by Iron Man. Well, Iron Man catches the Q7 and as he is slowing it down the wheel is turning the contents off. But the whole sequence starts with the cars getting to a halt. As Iron Man gets stuck on the road the family hits the breaks and the car skids and that’s how we had the story boarded previews the whole thing. I’m telling you we could not get this car skid because of the anti-lock break so we had to wet the road down and we sprayed the walls with WD40, anything we could do, all the movie tricks to get it skid.
Kevin Feige: They try to disable this thing two hours opening the hood and going through and trying to snip wires and trying to turn off the anti-lock break so that they can get it to skid. You have to go to great lengths to 5000 trick things. They had to get blowtorches and giant vices. You put the air in the tires. You put air dressing down.
Jon Favreau: We could not get the wheels to turn to a halt. Then when we wanted the wheels to spin out when it lowers the hood we can’t get it back to happen either. There's attraction that call for all of these things the stuntman will try to get as hard to do a special effects like you kind of get what you saw and to do and you didn’t do it.
Kevin Feige: Now all the speed and guys really thought they knew how to race around it. The best of stunt guys in the business some of best guys in the business, yeah and these guys are different guys because they are too tough and it couldn’t do what they wanted to do. They were putting electric motors to the wheels. They try and get the wheels to turn, we have to go back and essentially see that in because we couldn’t get it still.
Jon Favreau: So, the we found ourselves in situation we kind of fighting engineering of these Audi engineers and we hardly to show up his eyes and the joke was it might not be good for filming movies but it’s great for driving.
