The Super Bowl 50 will see two Super sports car commercials featuring cars only a handful of fans watching the Super Bowl can actually afford. 

Audi created a highly emotional Super Bowl 50 commercial. Surrounded by memories of the Space Age’s golden years, a retired astronaut has lost his zeal for life. But when his son shows up and hands over the keys to the new 205-mph Audi R8 V10 plus, a rocket ride under the stars stirs newfound life within the Commander.

The David Bowie Starman soundtrack takes the commercial to an emotional high as the Commander zips with the Audi R8 through scenery. David Bowie died on January 10, 2016. Starman is one of his best songs. Watch the Audi Super Bowl 50 ad below.

The 2017 Audi R8 was built for speed, with a high-revving, naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that delivers up to 610 hp in the R8 V10 plus. Add to that the traction of an exclusive quattro all-wheel drive system and advanced ASF multi-material construction, making this an amazing machine on the race track. The R8 features Audi's virtual cockpit with 12.3" LCD full digital instrument cluster with three visual modes: Infotainment, Classic and Sport. The steering wheel is inspired by race cars featuring the red start button on the wheel.
