The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS.CA -

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.

Chevro­let has benn the Of­fi­cial Ve­hi­cle of Ma­jor League.

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.
