S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Black Widow and her 2014 Corvette StingrayEnlarge Photo
Chevrolet’s stand at this week’s 2014 Chicago Auto Show has been graced by one very special Corvette, a black-on-black 2014 Corvette Stingray used by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Black Widow in the upcoming movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

For those unfamiliar with the franchise, S.H.I.E.L.D. is a fictitious government agency whose staff previously got around in Acuras. However, its star agent Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, appears to prefer American muscle.
Johansson won’t be in Chicago to play her new role for show goers, but Chevrolet will distribute a limited-edition Captain America comic book to celebrate its association with the movie, which hits theaters April 4.
Joining the blacked-out Corvette on Chevy’s stand are 14 of the brand’s other models. Performance fans have a good selection of cars to gaze upon, with various Corvette Stingray models as well as the new Corvette Z06 and its C7.R racing twin. The Camaro Z/28 and SS are also present and have been joined by some new commercial vehicles: a City Express small van and a compressed natural gas-powered Chevrolet Silverado HD.
