I realize this is more than a month late, but the question piqued my interest.

Assuming we're talking about the AP MVP award, and assuming you're talking about going on to play in the Super Bowl *that season* there have been:

24 MVPs who have played in the Super Bowl
10 MVPs who won the Super Bowl

6 of those pulled off the trifecta by winning the Super Bowl MVP as well. Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana, Emmitt Smith, Steve Young, and Kurt Warner.
