Anyone can say that they went to the dealership and found their “perfect car,” but how many people can say they actually designed it to their specifications with factory options? That is exactly what Chevrolet is offering 2012 Corvette customers with the “Build Your Own” feature on the company’s website. Thanks to CorvetteBlogger for bringing us the news.
In anticipation for the 2012 model year, Chevrolet has just changed the Corvette model’s website to reflect the new C6 options. On the website you can find information on the six available Corvette models. Not only are there pictures and comparisons of each model, you can also change the colors of the cars under their designated page and get information about their individual technology and perks. Look a bit further and you can get information about specialty packages offered on the models like the Centennial Package.
But designing your own ‘12 Corvette requires more than just basic information, it requires access to all available factory options. That is where the “Customize Your Car” configurator comes in play. By choosing “Build Your Own” in a designated model, you will be taken to a page with all kinds of options to choose from. You can designate your trim level and exterior color, as well as the color and textile for your interior components. Then you can move on to adding any interior or exterior accessories, picking power train options and even deciding on the color of your brake calipers. Adding available packages onto your customized Corvette is also an option in the configurator.
Once you’ve made your way through the factory options, you can also skim through dealer-installed Genuine Corvette Accessory options for you car.
The best part about the configurator is that in addition to allowing you to create your perfect car, it also keeps track of the price that your chosen options will cost you, giving you a good idea about what is and isn’t in your budget. Any cars in your area matching your selected option criteria will be pulled up on the webpage so you have access to information on where you can purchase your ultimate Corvette right now.
Not interested in buying a new 2012 Corvette? That’s ok, the configurator is fun for Corvette enthusiasts even if you won’t be shelling out the dough for a new model. So head on over to the new Corvette website and create your ultimate ride.
