Robert Downey Jr.’s Gift To Chris Evans Is Grand

Have you ever thought of the perfect gift for someone? Well, nevermind. Robert Downey Jr. is here to make all gifts obsolete and an absolute waste of time, money and energy. UGH. He surprised his co-star, Chris Evans, with an Avengers-themed 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. Who is jealous now? Honestly, I just wish we could all be friends with Robert Downey. Not to sound too dramatic but…

Evans didn’t hesitate to show the $275,000 car off in an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC in August 2018. You can notice all the personalized details that Evans added, and it looks absolutely ah-mazing.

As you may have already guessed, the car is a tribute to the iconic Captain America character and shocked as everyone else was, Evans did not believe he would receive such a gift. He said:

This car was a gift from Mr Robert Downey Jr. In my head I’m like, ‘Is this guy going to give me a car? There’s no way he’s going to do this. And, then sure enough, I showed up on set one day and it was there.

Although a 1967 Camaro would normally not cost nearly as much, the Captain America version is valued at $275,00 due to the parts of it that were custom made by car designer SpeedKore in Grafton, as well as the labor hours that were invested in it. With the LS3 crate engine and a Whipple 2.9-liter Supercharger, it is most definitely a beast. Even Chris himself said that such a car is “way out of my league”.

Robert and Chris have a very special friendship. It’s beautiful seeing it flourish over the years of the duo working together on the Avengers movies. We stan the two and we wish we could see more of their friendship on daily basis.
