Chevrolet Brings Back Exclusive Engine Build Experience for Corvette Z06

Chevrolet has announced that they will resume the exclusive Engine Build Experience for Corvette Z06 customers. Beginning in March, 2015, Z06 buyers will be able to get hands-on and assemble their 650 horsepower supercharged LT4 engine at the new Performance Build Center inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

“Chevrolet recognizes the passion customers have for Corvette and the Engine Build Experience offers them a truly unique opportunity for hands-on involvement in the creation of the heart of their new car,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product manager. “It’s a chance to bond with their new car.”

The experience can be selected with the order of a new Corvette Z06 on all trim levels for the car. It’s a $5,000 package and includes a full day in the plant with an engine assembly technician who instructs and oversees the build. A personalized engine plaque identifying the owner/builder and the date of the engine’s build is also included as well as professional photography of the experience. Concierge services are handled by the National Corvette Museum.

Upon completion, the engine moves to the vehicle assembly area of the plant where it will eventually be installed during the scheduled assembly of the customer’s Corvette.

Additional packages include Museum Delivery, which will deliver their Corvette to them at the National Corvette Museum upon its completion. This package is also available to Corvette Stingray buyers.
