Iron Man 2 is well on its way, and if the first film was any indication of the amazing cars in Tony Stark's collection, we expect a strong showing for the sequel. Aside from the Audi R8 convertible we spotted Robert Downey Jr driving last summer, we know that at least one scene will involve Stark's own F1-style car racing on the streets of Monaco before being cut in half by Whiplash (Mickey Rourke).



Iron Man proved to be a venerable gold mine of high-end computer graphics and hot cars, and it looks as if Iron Man 2 will not stray far from the original in those regards. MSN France recently ran a preview clip that shows Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) driving an F1-style racecar on the Circuit de Monaco when Whiplash shows up and slices the racecar in half.

Later in the scene a Rolls Royce Phantom is shown being dragged across the track - no doubt a victim to Whiplash's violent rampage. You can also expect an Audi R8 V10 Spyder to make an appearance - although not in the scenes revealed today.
