Robert Downey Jr. is going to make its impressive car collection more sustainable, and we can watch! meet Downey’s Dream Carsa new Original from HBO Max.
After Avengers: Endgame was the Marvel adventure finally over for Robert Downey Jr. Although after a series of disappointing series and films, Marvel Studios would undoubtedly sometimes long for the ‘good old days’ when Chris Evans and Downey Jr. were still the faces of the MCU. Just like many fans, by the way.
Car enthusiast Robert Downey Jr.
But no, it’s not there yet, and it probably never will. Fortunately, HBO Max is going to us next month the next best thing give: Iron Man preserving his car collection, while the cameras roll. Robert Downey Jr. has not left his impressive Marvel salaries in a bank account. No, the 58-year-old actor is an avid car collector.
Downey Jr. has an extensive fleet. Fans have been able to spot countless expensive and iconic cars over the years. Great, but Robert Downey Jr. still felt. in his own words, not so good at it. The best man is the founder of Footprint Coalition, a venture capital firm that invests in so-called climate technology companies. In other words: startups that will save our planet. And well, as the founder of such a company, racing around in roaring, polluting racing monsters felt somewhat hypocritical, according to the Iron Man actor.
Downey’s Dream Cars: that can be more sustainable!
How do you solve that problem and how do you advertise for a good cause? Downey Jr. apparently found the answer to that question. June 22 comes the HBO Max Original Downey’s Dream Cars out. A reality series in which the car enthusiast not only puts his collection in the spotlight, but also commits a little bit of sacrilege: the approach of the series is that Downey Jr. will make its cars more sustainable. In the first trailer, we hear the actor mention his classic Buick Riviera one hybrid has become. We also see that another model will be converted to biodiesel, and electromodding also seems to be discussed. Robert Downey Jr. thus clearly explores several roads leading to Rome.
“We are what we drive, and having amassed a formidable collection of classic cars over the years, I was a gas-spitting mess,” said the actor. “The past three years have been a hopeful experiment as I enlisted the best and brightest minds to evaluate, educate, elevate and decarbonise the vehicles in a way that demonstrates the limitless potential of creative problem solving.”
According to the HBO Max synopsis, Downey “brings his old cars into the future” and makes them “faster, more powerful and more efficient while keeping their souls intact.” So don’t worry, purists! At least, there will undoubtedly always be a group of enthusiasts who are strongly against this. Downey Jr. luckily that doesn’t stop him. It’s not for nothing that the best man was the face of the launch of Audi’s e-tron GT.
On to HBO Max
The first two episodes of Downey’s Dream Cars coming to HBO Max on June 22. In the weeks that follow, we’ll be treated to another episode every Thursday, through July 6. Looking at cars a bit, but Robert Downey Jr. listening and learning about sustainable technology, what more could you want?
