Purchasing a car is a big step. So, when it comes time to purchasing one, customers relish on how best they can make that vehicle their very own. Customization is key!
Who wouldn’t want to pick out their new vehicle’s color? Pick cloth or leather seating? Customize it with certain options? Watch it being built on the production line itself? Build its engine?!?
That’s right – Chevrolet is going all out with their new offering. All 2011 Z06 and ZR1 buyers are now given the option to build the powerplant for their new Corvette!
The two engines, LS7 and LS9, that are built into these vehicles are assembled at the Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich. Each engine is produced individually. A GM skilled tech will supervise each owner during the entire process, which takes just a bare block and converts it into their CORVETTE ENGINE! The whole process lasts around six hours.
The new program, set to begin as early as next month, costs an additional $5,800 excluding the additional travel to Detroit. Find out what this all entails by watching a time-lapse video after the jump.
