GM to Let 2011 Corvette Buyers Help Build Engines

DETROIT (AP) - Corvette owners could soon be revving up an engine they built with their own hands.

General Motors Co. says buyers who order a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1 can help assemble their cars' high-performance engines at a facility outside Detroit. GM technicians will supervise and help with the assembly.

The company says it doesn't know of any similar program in the industry.

GM is suggesting that dealers charge $5,800 for the engine-building option. But that's just a fraction of the cost of the cars, which start at $75,000.
