I know its not an Import but this is Great.....
This is a 5,800$ option that does not include travel to get to Detroit, but once you arrive at the airport a representative form GM will help you coordinate the engine build (5-6 hours) and you activities at the build center, as well as local travel, lodging and meals. They will then ship the engine to the assembly plant/Corvette Museum and help arrange pick up; normally with in a few weeks.
“Corvette owners are some of the most passionate — and most involved — enthusiasts in the industry,” Jim Campbell, vice president of Chevrolet marketing in the United States, said on Monday. “The Corvette engine build experience offers customers an unprecedented opportunity to participate, hands on, in creating the car.”
This unusual level of customer involvement is possible because both the Z06’s 7-liter engine and the ZR1’s 6.2-liter supercharged engine are assembled by hand.
The personalized engines will be installed in the customer’s car at the Corvette assembly plant and come with an owner nameplate. So while build-your-own Corvette owners won’t experience the joy of working in a frigid garage under a single light bulb in the dead of winter, they will eventually get to hear the engine they assembled fire up. For many gearheads, that’s a thrill not easily matched.
Those who are afraid that they might make a mistake even when working with the supervising engine guru can rest assured: The build-your-own engines are covered by Chevrolet’s five-year/100,000-mile transferable powertrain warranty.
