Black Widow Corvette Stingray debuts in ChicagoThu, 06 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800
The sinister Black Widow Corvette Stingray made an appearance at the Chicago Auto Show on Wednesday. The triple black 'Vette will be featured in the next Marvel comic movie “Captain America: Winter Soldier.” The Black Widow is one of 15 Stingrays being displayed at the show.
Black Widow, “real” name Natasha Romanova, is a member of the Avengers comic superhero team. She's been around since the 1960s, but she debuted to a new generation of fans on the big screen in the 2012 live action film “The Avengers.” She was played by Scarlett Johansson in the blockbuster hit.
Chevy didn't say it will be selling any Black Widow edition Stingrays, but we bet ticking the right boxes on the online configurator will get you close. At that point you can just slap a “Black Widow” badge on there and find a redhead to drive it. You'd be king of the nerds, with a Corvette.
Of course, you'll remember that the new Stingray was introduced at the Detroit auto show last year and features a 6.2-liter V8 making 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The convertible followed at the Geneva motor show, and finally, the Z06 and C7R bowed in Detroit this year.
We'll get a better look at the Black Widow when “The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4.
