I was was looking for the build your own feature too:(. My wife and I have been on fence on if we can afford this. Right now we can't but I feel in the very near future we will .

That being said I would like to see more colors so I can know exactly what I want. All the pictures are of the red and black ZL1:(. Then there is the pic of the gray vert that is at the LA Auto Show.

To me we are moving very quickly to production without the buyers knowing a lot. I would still like to see the following:

1. More real pictures w/ different colors
2. More real pictures w/ different options
3. The car given to the magazines for testing!!!!!

Other than that boy O boy she is sweet

On a side note I hope GM dealers forget about Market Adjusted Pricing now that we are looked in battle with Ford. Please GM dealers don't give anyone sitting on the fence a reason to buy a Mustang

Yeah, well the car doesnt have too many extra options since it comes decked out.

But as for other colors,

The camaro5 ZL1 specific photoshop thread has some very realistic renderings, cant even tell they arent real:

Ill be the first to say both cars are awesome and look amazing. Im not jumping on the Camaro ban wagon here. It would be a coin toss between the two. Both have pros and cons but im sure many can agree they are both exceptional.

Just trying to decide, changed back to white from red. But I don't
want to drive my dealer nuts. That magazine (maxium?), with the
red ZL1 and that model displaying the car was swaying me also.
Reminds me I goota be on the look out for that at the book store.

Its all about contrast. White and black is sick, super clean and bold. But as a detailer I must say, red just shines and reflects way more! it pops, and it can be loud, its just the color of sports cars. Black reflects the most but is too easy to scratch and too hard to maintain. Red is the next most reflective/shiny option.

White can hide definition in body lines that red will show off. Red and black combo is the number one choice IMO.

Now, Victory red or Crystal Red Tintcoat is the question

I would like to know if they are going to paint the shark tooth antenna the same as the body color? I have seen some both ways.

I think thats been tossed back and forth between a dealer option and a factory option, so one way or another you can get it

I just want to get a 2012 SS, and switch out the front bumper and grilles, and all the ground effects, as well as get those rims.

Everything about the ZL1 is a step up from any Camaro out there

This really is going to be a great Camaro! It was great to get to sneak a peek at some of the secret stuff when we were up there in Oshawa earlier this year!

No, you're getting it all now, but at the time it was neat to get to wander around the plants.

Thanks!

And I know what you mean about CRT being tough to photograph or photoshop, I saw the color on a Cruze recently and was absolutely blown away by how awesome it is in person. Pictures that I've seen of it really don't do the color any justice.
