We always love a good bromance story or two between our favourite celebrities, especially if they are superhero level.
Well, since it is officially 'Avengers' week, here is one from two individuals representing probably the most loved superheroes today.
As you know, Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man in the Marvel franchise, and Chris Evans, who plays Captain America on-screen, have bonded over the years after working on so many movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe together.
But apparently, Downey Jr. likes to take his friendship up a notch because he gifted his co-star with a car that cost USD275,000
We're not talking about just any
According to Men's Health
, he surprised Evans with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro
that is 'Avengers'-themed.
In an episode of 'Jay Leno's Garage'
, Evans showed off his personalised gift, which is a tribute to his most iconic character, Captain America.
The sports car came with a steering wheel decorated with his star-shaped shield and a plaque that read "Steve Rogers Special Edition"
Evans told Leno that Downey Jr. had asked him continuously about the kind of cars he liked when they were filming on-set.
"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,'" he said.
Then, to his surprise, he actually showed up on set with the car right there for him!
Now, wouldn't all Marvel fans want that? RDJ, can we be your colleague too?
Downey Jr. is practically living his most famous role in real life. So, he is
the billionaire Tony Stark after all because the original vehicle doesn't normally cost that much.
A 1967 Camaro would typically be priced at about USD20,000 (RM83,000), but the exclusive Captain America version costs 10 times more because of the customised parts and the number of hours it took to modify.
Now, we wonder what have the other Avengers cast received as gifts from RDJ...
