It’s all about America’s favorite sports car—its history, how it’s made, what sets it apart from all the rest and being immersed in the complete Corvette experience. The GM Corvette Assembly Plant Tour does just that. It takes you on a journey from beginning to end that shows the true birth of the Corvette. Witness the frame being put together, the doors getting their first hinges, the seats and steering wheel taking their stands in the cockpit and more! You’re surrounded by Corvettes of all colors on a roller coaster of an assembly line.
I didn’t know what to expect when I first stepped onto that concrete pathway lined in neon yellow stripes. I was too busy looking up, down and around at the machines and people on the assembly line—and then I saw them. Rows and rows of brand spanking new shiny C7 Corvettes. Newborns fresh off the assembly line. There was Laguna Blue, Lime Rock Green, Black, Arctic White…that beautifully sleek rainbow.
Chevrolet announced that public plant tours at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant resume on Monday, October 14, giving enthusiasts a personal look at the production of the all-new, seventh-generation sports car. Additionally, popular customer programs coordinated with the National Corvette Museum, including Museum Delivery, Buyers Tour and the Corvette Photo Album, are available again, offering new owners a variety of ways to personalize their Corvette purchase experience.
The plant tour and customer programs were halted last fall while the plant underwent a $131-million upgrade for production of the 2014 Corvette Stingray.
