Baseball star Melky Cabrera has been awarded with a brand new 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible for winning the MVP title at yesterday’s 2012 All-Star Game in Kansas City.

The San Francisco Giants outfielder is seen here holding up the keys to his new ride, a nice plum red example with a black interior.

Like all Camaro ZL1s, Cabrera’s new beauty packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque--enough for 0-60 mph runs in just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 184 mph.

If you're interested in picking up one for yourself, pricing on the Camaro ZL1 starts at $54,995.

Note, Cabrera’s prize wasn’t the only Camaro making headlines at the Major League Baseball highlight.

Grand Marshal and Major League Baseball Hall of Famer George Brett led an all-star red carpet parade in a Chevrolet Camaro Convertible with his wife Leslie as the players and coaches proceeded to Kauffman Stadium for the event.

And in case you were wondering why all the Camaros, Chevrolet is the official vehicle sponsor of Major League Baseball.

  1. Yeah, that makes sense - give ball players worth millions of dollars free cars to be seen in, because they can't afford to buy them on their own.

  2. I know!! They should give the car to a fan.. like me. Wait a second, do people still watch baseball??
