What’s the best way to tell a friend you enjoyed working with them on a project? A thank-you card? A specially designed 1967 Chevrolet Camaro? If you are Robert Downey Jr. and you’ve just wrapped up filming Captain America: Civil War with Chris Evans, you’d go with the latter.
That’s right—after finishing the filming of Civil War, Downey Jr. commissioned a special Captain America-themed Camaro to give to his costar during the filming of Avengers: Infinity War. The 1967 Camaro was recently featured on an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
SpeedKore Performance Group took care of the job for Downey Jr. Instead of making the Camaro a glaringly obvious red, white, and blue, SpeedKore instead opted for a more subtle grey-green paint job, called “Melted Army Man Green.” Inside, the Camaro boasts a touchscreen, a Captain America shield steering wheel, and a leather interior that mirrors the leather jacket that Evans wore as Captain American in the franchise’s first film.
Reportedly, Downey Jr. was so pleased with SpeedKore’s work on the Camaro that he has commissioned two more vehicles to be redesigned by the group. No word yet on what those vehicles are, but other Avengers actors are likely waiting with anticipation, hoping Downey Jr. chose them.
