Could Beyonce really become one of the first people to take delivery of a C7 Corvette? After all, she reportedly only learned to drive two years ago. If The Detroit Bureau sources are to be believed, the pop star will be given the keys to a 2014 Corvette during the Super Bowl halftime show.

The idea isn't too far-fetched despite General Motors vowing not to advertise during the upcoming game. The rumor is given more credibility after Chevrolet spokesman Mike Albano told The Bureau that, "We've got a history of being involved with the Super Bowl."

The plan is reportedly to place a hand-built, one-off C7 on the 50-yard line during the halftime show, then gift the car to the singer. It's a shrewd marketing move. GM gets its time in front of Super Bowl viewers without officially changing its plan to avoid buying expensive ad time during the game. Product placement during sporting events is old hat to GM. The company has parked its vehicles on the field during Olympic opening ceremonies at least once before.

Just remember Beyonce, take some precautions as a still-green driver with a powerful new car: Adjust your mirrors, re-position the seat and put on your seatbelt before putting keys in the ignition. Mostly though, watch out for jealous Corvette drivers.

      If this is real it's not like they're going to have Beyonce stop singing and say "hey look, everybody -- a brand new Corvette!!". It would probably be part of her performance, bringing her on-stage or something like that. What car should they use instead? A Jetta TDI?

      This must be true because the NFL would totally let GM roll the first version of their halo car out onto the field without paying for any kind of advertising.

      Not bad as an attempt to "get younger" than the current Corvette demographic. Are there better choices? Sure...but they (probably) are'nt gonna have 1 billion eyes on them.

      I find it highly offensive that General Motors would give away, very publicly, such an expensive car to a VERY rich woman when so many Americans are struggling to merely put food on their tables.

      The vitriol directed towards Beyonce here is disappointing and somewhat disgusting. She's a talented pop star, and if her music doesn't appeal to you that's fine, but you don't have to call her names and stoop to immature crap just because of it. It demeans you, because it makes you look like an immature child who resents this woman for being successful. I agree that she should pay for her Corvette, but technically she is. One of her jobs is endorsing products, she gets paid to appear in ads and associate herself with different brands. You may not like it, but it's a pretty typical deal for many famous people. She is basically appearing in a Chevrolet ad by agreeing to do this, the car is her payment. You might not like that, but then again you don't have to buy the products she endorses either.

        It would be nice sentiment, but how many U.S. military soldiers are as well known as Beyonce? If it was veteran's day, or memorial day, or something similar then it could have the same impact. Also FYI, I am a U.S. Army war veteran.

      Great idea, give a multi-millionaire a gift like this from a company that wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for the muslim president giving them money to stay in business. So they get saved by our tax dollars and they feel they can give cars away to people that can buy them with no issues by using their spare change. I'm with the guy below, give it to a military veteran instead.

        Did not know President Bush was a Muslim, the auto bail out was started under his watch but I bet Faux News didn't tell you that
