Once again, Corvette Z06 customers will be able to assemble the supercharged LT4 V8 engine for their cars at the new Performance Build Center located inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.
Priced at $5,000, the package includes a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who oversees and instructs the build, as well as a personalized engine plaque identifying the owner/builder and the date of the engine build, but also a professional photography of the experience.
Once the package is ordered, personnel from the National Corvette Museum will handle concierge services for the customer, as well as the scheduled built date and handling logistics on the day of the build. Still, the bad news is that the customer will pay the travel costs to Bowling Green and lodging.
For those who don’t know, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Coupe is priced from $78,996, while the Z06 Convertible model costs $83,995. Customers who want the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package will have to pay $2,995 and will get a functional carbon front splitter, rocker panels and a larger rear spoiler.
Moreover, the Z07 Performance Package will be priced at $7,995 and adds carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors, adjustable front and rear aerodynamic components and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
Each vehicle is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 650 hp (485 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.
