Automakers like to offer their customers an enjoyable, personalized buying experience when you step foot into the dealership, but few can offer a personalized experience like the “Engine Build Experience” from Chevrolet. This is a special program for Corvette ZO6 buyers where you can assemble your own fire-breathing 650 HP supercharged V8 engine.
The package lets buyers spend a full day at the Performance Build Center (Bowling Green, KY) at the behest of an engine-assembly technician, who will instruct and oversee as the customer puts together the powerplant of his or her Z06. Each customer-built motor gets a personalized engine plaque indicating the owner/builder’s name and the date of assembly, along with professional photos documenting the whole experience. This doesn’t come cheap however, as you will have to plunk down an extra $5000 on top of your $80,000+ ZO6 for the opportunity to build your own performance engine. It might sound like a lot, but it should put a smile on your face every time you press the gas pedal and your engine roars to life.
