As part of Chevrolet’s ongoing sponsorship deal with the Manchester United Football Club, a total of 15 cars were delivered to the team mainly consisting of the seventh-generation Corvette and the fifth-gen Camaro. However, it has emerged that the free sports cars haven’t even been driven by players or Manchester United officials.

With the likes of Wayne Rooney (who earns nearly $20 million a year before endorsements) among its stars, it seems evident that the club prefers its players and officials to drive their own cars and they are doing just that. Rooney already has an impressive fleet including a Range Rover from Overfinch and an Aston Martin Vanquish

Other notable players from Manchester United include Robin van Persie who frequently drives a Porsche Panamera.

Interestingly, the Chevrolet deal didn’t necessitate the players actually drive their cars but if they want, they can. Evidently, they don’t know just how much praise the latest-generation Corvette Stingray has received since its debut early last year!


  1. Really GM? What was the thought behind this?- “Let’s give a bunch of rich guys free Corvettes! That ought to endear us to our core customer base!!” IDIOTS!!
    Hey GM, you would get alot more positive traction out of this story if, for example, you donated the cars and had them auctioned off with the proceeds going to the charity of your choice. At least then they would be put to good use.
