What do you get when you cross a barb-tailed fish with a venomous spider? At the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, it means you get a supercar with looks that could kill — and performance to match — that's fit for a deadly super-agent who fights alongside "Earth's Mightiest Heroes." Chevrolet today gave the world its first peek at the Black Widow Corvette Stingray, a menacing-looking, black-on-black version of the current-generation Vette behind the wheel of which movie audiences will see actress Scarlett Johansson's Natasha "Black Widow" Romanoff when "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opens April 4.
Tim Mahoney, Chevrolet global chief marketing officer, introduced the Black Widow Stingray during a triple unveiling that also included the bi-fuel 2015 Silverado Heavy Duty CNG (compressed natural gas) pickup truck and 2015 Chevrolet City Express cargo van. The presentation opened with a screening of the trailer for this year's sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger," Cap's first film since 2012's super-friends extravaganza "Marvel's The Avengers." Marvel Entertainment’s cross-marketing partnership will introduce GM products to a film universe that has previously featured prominent appearances by vehicles from Toyota and Honda by way of Lexus and Acura.
