During Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier European premiere in London, England, a special Corvette flanked the red carpet that movie-goers will soon recognize. Actress Scarlett Johansson’s character, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Natasha Romanoff also known as Black Widow, drives the Stingray in the movie.
“The look and handling of the 2014 Corvette Stingray were a perfect fit for the Black Widow; a sleek, fast, sporty and skilled warrior with lots of prowess,” said Steve Tihanyi, General Motors General Director of Branded Entertainment in a press release. Tihanyi managed Chevrolet’s cooperation with Disney and Marvel Studios.
The Stingray isn’t the only Chevrolet vehicle to make an appearance in the movie. The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe, Silverado and Impala is also seen throughout the movie. Visually, you can’t really tell it apart from any black Stingray you’d see in dealer lots, but doesn’t stop it from being a heck of a movie prop.
