Robert is a huge car enthusiast who's owned everything from a BOSS 302 Mustang to a Mercedes Pagoda, not to mention all the Audi R8's he drives to the Marvel movie premieres.
As a gesture of friendship to Evans, Downey commissioned a Captain America themed restomod 1967 Camaro. The Camaro drivetrain consists of a 6.2L small-block LS3 V8 376 cu in engine, a 4 speed automatic transmission, and a Whipple supercharger. This all combines to create around 750 HP.
When it comes to the technical aspects of the car, Evans admitted it "might as well be Spanish to me." Evans isn't much of a car enthusiast, but he said he loves the color of the car.
Evans also admitted that he had his suspicions about the gift while the two were shooting an Avengers film. Evans said, "He would start pointing at other cars in the street saying, 'Well, what do you think of that one?' And in my head I'm like, 'Is this, is this guy gonna give me a car?'"
Downey did get him a car, and with 750 horsepower, he never has to worry about being late to an audition again."
