Chevrolet is bringing the new mid-engine Corvette to a dealer near you with a mobile showroom.

Sadly, deliveries on the new Stingray aren’t expected to start until later this year (or possibly even early next year), so it’ll be some time before GM puts up the Corvette’s online configurator. But in the meantime, they will be bringing the C8 around the country in pieces to show each and every customization option you can get for the new Stingray.

Hauled in a massive trailer towed by a big Silverado pickup, the interactive mobile showroom (which Chevy calls the “Corvette Visualizer”) will be taken to 125 dealers across America. Although not nearly as convenient as taking a look at a virtual representation of the C8 from the comfort of your own living room, the showroom will give prospective Corvette customers a hands-on look at everything the Stingray has to offer.

There are also three different seat options, including GT1, GT2, and Competition Sport. GT1 is the standard offering that emphasizes comfort over performance. Mulan leather and optional 2-way lumbar support with wing adjustments are found here. GT2 provides a middle ground with dual-density foam, carbon fiber trim, Napa leather inserts with Mulan leather bolsters, as well as 2-way lumbar support and wing adjustments. GT2 seats are also heated and ventilated as standard.

The mobile showroom starts roaving the country late July and will make stops at certain car-related events such as the Concours d’Elegance of America, Woodward Dream Cruise, National Corvette Museum 25th Anniversary Celebration, and Petit Le Mans.
