Robert Downey Jr. is a well-known name across the globe, most prominently known for his portrayal of Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Robert Downey Jr. On his Upcoming Docuseries Of His Dream Cars
The Sherlock Holmes star is all set to release his docuseries on Max which will include his ambitious journey to make his cars acquainted with a sustainable future. The upcoming TV docuseries, Downey’s Dream Cars, will document Downey’s transformation of vintage cars into eco-friendly vehicles using cutting-edge green technology. The Avengers star shared that his collection of cars was adding to the pollution and contradicting this he founded Footprint Coalition, aimings for a sustainable future. But with his productive last three years, RDJ engaged in plans to decarbonize his collection of cars.
“We are what we drive, and having amassed a formidable collection of classic cars over the years, I was a petrol-spewing mess. And a hypocrite, as I’d founded the Footprint Coalition in 2019 to scale technologies that mitigate climate change. Fortunately, I’m a bit of a dreamer. The last 3 years have been an experiment in hope, as I engaged the best and brightest minds to evaluate, educate, elevate, and decarbonize these vehicles in a way that demonstrates the limitless potential of creative problem-solving.”
Robert Downey Jr. shared that the entire journey of transforming his collection has been a challenging yet enlightening one. The superstar added that he believes his efforts along with his team have taken a step towards a sustainable world
“It was a huge challenge and an enlightening journey. It’s also just fun to watch, and for that, I must credit my kids, my wife and boss Susan, Team Downey, Boat Rocker’s Matador Content, and of course, Max and Warner Bros. Discovery. Thanks for supporting what, at times, seemed a blurry vision, but ultimately confirmed the myriad ways we can join hands and create a sustainable future.”
Fans Are Not Impressed By Robert Downey Jr.’s Upcoming Docuseries
Though as per the Chaplin star, the entire motive of the project is to reflect his journey for making his collection of cars compatible with the idea of sustainability.

Great guy and all but uh…thanks for the flex? I worked 16 hours yesterday and haven’t paid the May payment on my car yet. The last thing I want to do is worship another rich person.
