Well, now it looks like Chevrolet is doing the same, except that instead of Iron Man, it’s tying up with Captain America.
In this video captured by YouTube user Jason Vandervliet, a black 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was seen making an appearance in the set of Captain America: Winter Solider in Washington D.C.
The car, it appears, was being driven by Scarlet Johansson who plays Black Widow in the movie. Look a little closer and you might notice what looks like Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, coming up to the Corvette to have a little chat with his co-star.
There has been no confirmation regarding a potential marketing partnership between Marvel Studios and Chevrolet. But if there is one, they couldn’t have picked a better car to promote than the Corvette Stingray.
Quite possibly one of the finest sports cars to have ever come out of Chevrolet, the Corvette Stingray is a veritable beast on wheels.
There’s something about how Chevrolet developed this car that makes it such an attractive ride. It sure looks the part of a modern-day sports car yet still carries some of the same styling cues that had made the Corvette one of the most iconic American sports cars in history.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the car comes packed with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that produces an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque under its enormous bonnet.
