Ultimate Factory: Building the Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Ultimate Factory: Building the Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The National Geographic Channel is kicking off their second season of Ultimate Factories on Thursday night with an in-depth look at the manufacture and assembly of Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06. The one hour show gives viewers an unprecedented look at not only the processes of production, but focuses on the people behind the scenes that bring our favorite car to life. The host of the show is Kevin Moore, who gets the awesome responsibility of going beyond the visitor’s line and doing the Corvette production jobs we wish we could try once, like assembling by hand the Z06’s LS7 engine at the Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan or starting the Corvette for the first time and taking it through the quality control tests. Here is a promo of what you can expect to see on Ultimate Factories: Corvette

Ultimate Factories: Corvette will air on Thursday, November 29th at 10:00 PM EST. The show will reair on Friday, November 30th at 1:00 AM EST and Saturday, December 1st at 2:00 PM EST.

  1. To whom it may concern,

    I realize this may be a stretch, but I was just wondering what might be a way to get involved in the engine assembly part of the z06’s LS7. I know this isn’t an application but I thought maybe you could kind of point me in the right direction and help me find out what steps I would need to take. I build performance engines for boats now, (cigerettes, skaters, fountains, etc.) but was just interested in something different. If you could give me any input at all it would be much apprectiated.

    Thanks,
    Brian
