Robert Downey Jr. Gave This Pricey Gift to Chris Evans and It Will Make You Say Aww!
Iron Man and Captain America have had a cat and dog relationship in “Civil War” but still, they remain a team to fight whichever threatens to harm the human race. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with and there’s no wonder how they can beat even the worst of the villains.
The same goes in real life, sans for the bickering, Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark and the superhero with the red steel suit, and Chris Evans, who played Steve Rogers and the dashing star-spangled superhero, are buddies.
If you’re looking for the person to be awarded the “most generous coworker there ever is,” you might as well give it to RDJ, who probably embodies the very essence of the word generosity.
This was after he gifted Chris with a $275,000-car … but wait, this was not just an ordinary vehicle, it’s a vintage 1967 Camaro RS that’s with sentimental value. The 37-year-old actor showed his customized and restored ride to Jay Leno, and it looked fitting for Captain America, no doubt.
The overall design was nothing short of perfect for the soldier — the steering wheel features Captain America’s shield and, along with it is a plaque that says it’s a “Steve Rogers special edition.” The Chevrolet classic is in army green, which, according to Chris, was personally chosen by his pal.
However, you probably won’t be seeing the man drive this handsome, sleek car around Los Angeles because he said it was safe and sound in his Massachusetts home – it might be a dead giveaway when he takes out for a ride in Los Angeles.
RDJ presented the car after wrapping up filming for “Avengers: Endgame,” which shocked Chris, but not so much, the latter said because he already had a hunch that a gift so expensive was coming. He kind of got an idea when the 54-year-old actor kept asking him about the kind of cars he wanted, so, at the back of his mind, he was already guessing if the man would actually give him one.
The grand gift could leave anyone speechless and as for Chris, he admitted that the car was out of his league and was the most powerful he had ever driven. Grafton, Wisconsin-based car designer SpeedKore was in charge of the restoration of the Camaro. The classic vehicle reportedly costs $20,000 nowadays, but given the state-of-the-art customization, it’s price tag skyrocketed.
This may sum up how strong the bond that was created between Chris and RDJ all throughout these years, filming together on “Avengers” franchise, is. The “Chaplin” actor was actually the one who convinced the “Gifted” thespian to grab the role of Captain America during the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Plus, the pricey gift was seemingly what would Mr. Stark himself would have given. On that note, could this be a farewell sentimental present? (Note: Spoiler alert!) After all, as per “Endgame,” there’s little chance that they will be coming back again for another film together.
