Corvette eli manning – Eli Manning’s new Chevrolet Corvette – Just like the stadium he quarterbacked the New York Giants to their Super Bowl victory in, Eli Manning’s new car is a convertible.
As a prize for being named MVP of the game, Chevrolet handed Manning the keys to a Corvette Grand Sport Centennial Edition.
Eli Manning was a major part of the New York Giants Super Bowl 46 21-17 win over the New England Patriots, completing 30 of his 40 passing attempts for 296 yards and one touchdown
The MVP Award winner was chosen through a media panel and fan vote on www.superbowl.com during the game, and those that watched the events unfold during the big game probably knew the younger Manning would be MVP once the game was over and the Giants had won.
No run of the mill Vette, the special package celebrates the 100th anniversary of Chevy’s founding on November 3rd, 2011, and is only being offered on 2012 model year cars.
Now he’ll get to enjoy the 6.2L V8 with 436-hp and 424 lb-ft of torque in a limited, black-on-black Centennial edition model to celebrate 100 years of Chevrolet history.
Last night marked Eli Manning’s second win of both the Super Bowl and the Super Bowl MVP award – having also won the MVP honors in 2008 for his part in beating the then-undefeated New England Patriots. Manning took home a 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid sport utility vehicle that year.
Available on any of the Corvette models, the $4950 option includes Carbon Flash Metallic paint, Satin Black wheels with red accents, a suede-trimmed black interior, special 100th Anniversary badges and an advanced active suspension system.
Eli’s drop top has a starting price of $69,115, but a top of the line 628 hp Corvette ZR1 with a top speed of 205 mph will run you $128,515.
Soon to have two Super Bowl trophies on the shelf of his Hoboken, N.J., apartment, Eli could likely afford to fill his parking spot with either Vette, but the Grand Sport should be just fine for his 15 minute commute to MetLife Stadium to defend the team’s title next season.
