As if winning the MVP title at last night’s MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City wasn’t enough, Melky Cabrera was also awarded a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible. 

Paint Camaro fans around the world a jealous shade of green because winning a $54,995 muscle car with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 would put a smile on anyone’s face, even if Cabera’s new car is dark red.

The beast’s 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque is impressive, especially on the track where GM makes a point to back the car up. Truth be told, the ZL1 is nothing short of thrilling anywhere you drive it. as you can read in our review.

GM is the official sponsor of Major League Baseball, which is also how such a high-end muscle car made its way into the prize bin.
