Corvette lets buyers build their own engine

July 13, 2010

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.
