Sports cars continue to infiltrate the silver screen in superhero movies, and now it is the Corvette Stingray ’s turn to have a taste of Hollywood fame. In the new "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" movie that is due out on April 4th, Black Widow — one of the many S.H.I.E.L.D. superheros — will drive an all-black 2014 Corvette Stingray .
There are no specifics on this deep, gloss-black `Vette, but it will be on display at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show . Unfortunately, the stunning and dangerous Black Widow herself will not be there. But, Chevy will be passing out a limited-edition Captain America comic book to commemorate the collaboration of Marvel and the Stingray.
On top of the gloss-black paint job, the initial images of the Black Widow Stingray show a set of black rims that help complete this the package. Stay tuned for more details on the 2014 Corvette Stingray Black Widow, but don’t look for a special edition model in dealers, as I’m pretty sure this car is for the movies only.

The Corvette Stingray rolled out of Kentucky and into our hearts at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and it has since been a smash hit. In fact, here in the Tampa area, dealers were requiring a $1,000 deposit and a credit check just to test drive one. All of that hoopla has since calmed down, but the huge demand remains.
It’s no wonder it is in such high demand, as its 6.2-liter V-8 punches out up to 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, while getting up to 29 mpg on the highway. Additionally, its reworked interior is finally on par with what high-end car buyers expect.
The Stingray is capable of hitting 60 mph in under four seconds and hitting a top speed of around 180 mph. you get all of this, and it still comes in at just $51,995 — $60k with the Z51 package.
