That is wild that they put the ENTIRE drive line in at once, lol. Wish it could be that easy. Plus the rotors on that thing a fricking gi-normous, jesus:eek2:

I'm not exactly sure, but most automotive assembly lines crank out 60
vehicles per hour at max production. That's one vehicle per minute.
In theory, it would take 1 hour for a ZR1 to be assembled and driven
off the end of the assembly line.

My father use to work for gm... back in the late 80's they would do around 56 cars an hour. I believe he said from start to finish, around 36 hrs total. But he worked at Lindon in NJ they did buick, cads, and olds. Sweet video thanks for posting it man.

Negative, they can probably crank out the entire first years limited amount in a month.

Just got back from corvette plant last month. I was told they make 165 Corvettes per day and only 8 XLR's per day. The cars arent built round the clock either. I stood there as the "marriage" (when the driveline meets the body) took place on a blue ZR1 and I was talking to the guy that bolted the LR in place and he said he sees about three ZR1's go through in a day.

i got a "behind the scenes" tour of the bowling green plant in march when we picked up my dads z06, it wasnt like the normal tours that you get, we got to go around the whole plant with a personal tour guide. it was cool, i think the only way you can do that though is if you take corvette delivery option

Year ours was the private tour as well. Dad didnt take the delivery option on his 08 C6 but they still gave us the private tour becasue he just bought one a month ago.

It doesn't mean it would take an hour. That just means there is a minute between each car. the first car on the line could have taken 4 hours but every one started 1 minute after so that after that 4 hour initial they pump out 60 or so an hour.
