It’s a tradition in U.S. sports to gift cars to the top dogs in every field. It is a way both to boost the athlete’s confidence and inspire him for greater effort and for U.S. car makers to get their name out there. So when it was time to award the 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player Ben Zobrist, Chevrolet came forward with a 2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition.
The special edition Camaro SS Convertible is one of the most well-appointed models in all of Chevrolet’s range, featuring Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior, 50th Anniversary stripe package and badges, and a black top on convertibles since you can also order it as a coupe.
The Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition awarded to Zobrist, picked by voted of the fans and panel of media personalities, is a convertible boasting 20-inch 50th Anniversary wheels, custom grille with satin chrome accents, body color front splitter, orange brake calipers, unique black leather interior with suede inserts and orange accent stitching, and 50th Anniversary treatments on instrument panel, seatbacks, steering wheel and illuminated sill plates. Powering this special Camaro is Chevy’s LT1 6.2L V-8, with 455 hp.
“In this historic matchup, Zobrist’s performance on the field truly embodies the same ‘Never Give Up’ spirit that drives the Chevrolet team to innovate every day and that has made us the Most Awarded Automotive Brand two years in a row,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “We are proud to recognize the tremendous efforts of Zobrist with the MVP award and the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition convertible.”
