The 2017 Ted Williams All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, Robinson Cano, chose a Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport during the MVP award ceremony presented by Chevrolet at Marlins Park in Miami.

Chevrolet, America’s most-awarded car company, gave Cano, who went 1-for-2 in the contest with a home run, RBI and a run scored, his choice between the 460 hp Corvette Grand Sport or the trail-ready Colorado ZR2.

This is Cano’s first All-Star MVP award and the third Seattle Mariners player, joining Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. (1992) and Ichiro Suzuki (2007).

His solo home run at the top of the tenth inning proved to be the game-winner.

The Corvette Grand Sport that Cano chose features heritage-inspired design cues combined with a track-focused chassis and suspension elements that build on a legacy established in 1963, when five Grand Sport racecars were built under the direction of the Corvette’s first chief engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov.

The Grand Sport offers estimated 0-60 mph performance of 3.6 seconds and quarter-mile capability of 11.8 seconds at 118 mph, with the available Z07 performance package and available paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission.
