The US$5,000 option package includes a full day with a Performance Build Center engine assembly technician who instructs and oversees the build, a personalized engine plaque identifying the customer and professional photography, an experience the company says is one-of-a-kind.

“Coupled with the investment, for US$439 million for a new paint shop and facility upgrades announced in May, GM has committed US$483 million to Bowling Green this year alone,” said plant manager Kai Spande. “These significant investments indicate the company’s confidence in Bowling Green, the Performance Build Center and our skilled workforce.”
