(Note: IMDB classifies the Cabriolet as a Type 17, which is incorrect; Cabriolets are Type 155. IMDB was contacted regarding this error years ago, but they seemingly do not care.)

infoBecause I've received a number of submissions for this film, I need to make a little FYI: The red convertible used in the bridge rescue scene in Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) is not a Volkswagen Cabriolet. It is a Talbot Samba Cabriolet, built by Pininfarina from 1981-1985 for the PSA Group (subsidiary of Peugeot). Just 13,062 of these convertibles were built as it could not compete with the car it tried to copy, the Golf I Cabriolet.
