Forget Disney, World Series MVP Picks New C8 Corvette

Sure, winning the World Series is pretty great, and it’s even better if you’re named Most Valuable Player like Stephen Strasburg was, but you know what’s even better? Getting a new C8 Corvette to take home as a much larger and louder trophy.

Strasburg, a pitched for the Washington Nationals, finished the season with an impressive 18 wins, six losses, but really shined during the World Series. That included an eight-inning performance of game six that saw just five pitches in a clutch situation to retire all three batters.

The World Series MVP is able to pick any vehicle from Chevrolet as part of the honor, and recently that’s meant a new pickup. But Strasburg picked something a little quicker. A C8 Stingray, the first mid-engine Corvette. Starting with 490 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque and a price of $59,995, it’s one of the best performance bargains around.

This marks 14 years of MVPs getting Chevys. The last two winners picked Silverados, and the year before that was a 50th Anniversary Camaro SS. No word on when Strasburg will be able to pick up that new Vette.
