The New York Giants pulled off a great win in the Super Bowl and MVP Eli Manning won a 2012 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Centennial Edition for his performance.
Winning a Super Bowl generally marks the pinnacle of a great player's career. Eli Manning led his New York Giants to a close win over the New England Patriots (as predicted by the CarBuzz team) for his second Super Bowl victory by a score line of 21-17. For his effort, he not only lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the Pete Rozelle Trophy (given to the game's best player), but he also received a set of keys to a 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible.
During the postgame celebrations at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, Manning was called up to the podium to accept his awards and even though he forgot the keys on the stage, he still managed to find his way back up there to claim his special edition 'Vette. The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible features a 6.2-liter V8 engine which can put out 436hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. It can hit 60mph from rest in 4.0 seconds. The Centennial Edition Corvette marks Chevy's 100 years and Super Bowl XLVI proved a potent place to promote the American automaker's milestone.
