Corvette lets buyers build their own engine
July 13, 2010 (WLS) -- Would you like to build your very own sports car? One automaker is giving car buyers the chance to do that.
General Motors will let 2011 Corvette buyers help build the engines of their cars by hand.
Anyone who orders a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1 can help build the engine with the help of a technician.
Assembly would take place at GM's plant in Wixom, Michigan, where it builds its high-performance cars by hand.
GM says it will take buyers about 6 hours to assemble the engines of their new Corvette.
The suggested price is $5,800 dollars for the special engine and for one night of lodging.
