Super Bowl MVPs And The Cars They’ve Won

There’s no question in anybody’s mind that the Super Bowl has become an annual tradition for Americans. It may not have the historical significance of Independence Day or the rich story behind Thanksgiving, but Super Bowl Sunday has morphed into a weekend holiday for this country. One really cool thing about the spectacle is the traditions that have been created out of the tradition, and one in particular, is close to the hearts of the automotive industry. See, every year, the player who gets named Super Bowl MVP wins more than just a spot in the NFL’s history books. He also wins a car; and it’s usually a pretty good one at that.

A year later, Starr once again took MVP honors in Super Bowl II – a 33 to 14 win over the Oakland Raiders – and he once again took home a for his efforts.

Over the years, we’ve seen a number of cars handed over to Super Bowl MVPs. That tradition has continued in the last decade and change when the keys to cars like the and the Chevrolet Corvette were given to the game’s best player. In fact, if you go all the way back to Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004, the and Corvette have dominated the MVP’s winning car. All told, since 2004, the Escalade has been awarded to the Super Bowl MVP a total of five times. The Chevrolet Corvette is second with a total of two models while the have been awarded once. Only twice in that span – 2010 and 2016 – when no cars were awarded to the game’s MVP. Tough luck for Drew Brees and Von Miller.

Now that we’re a week away from Super Bowl LI, let’s take a drive down memory lane and go back to Super Bowl XXXVIII to see which Super Bowl MVP got which car for his exploits in the game.
