Because 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.
