Before the Ford Mustang launched in 1964, executives at General Motors knew they were going to need another sports car other than the Corvair. It became clear when in ’64, 100,000 Ford Mustangs were sold in six months, and half a million by the end of the year. The Corvair on the other hand, was only moving 200,000 yearly. Thus, the Chevrolet Camaro was born. And on September 29, 1966, the first Camaros hit the road.

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a very SPECIAL CAR so it is fitting that the configurator tool for the newest American supercar is unlike the rest of the build page designs. Unlike the configurator for the standard Corvette Stingray that has you flip from page to page as you look at the packages, the exterior/interior appearance and options with a series of check boxes. Instead, the 2015 Z06 configurator has everything on one page and you simply flip through the categories, making choices along the way that show up in the large image at the top of the page.
