I'll have to see it in person, but not sure I'm a fan (and I have a C6 already). I really don't see anything resembling the Elise there. Funny you said "new leaf" as the Corvettes still use leaf springs (not mine though). I agree about the new Viper.Dare I say it, I actually really like the styling of the new C7. American cars are turning over a new leaf, I think. I even like the styling of the new Viper. I always HATED the styling of those things.
I was gonna say - the rear treatment is Camaro al the way with the rest being quite C6-ish. Thats fine and all but when is Chevy gonna "go for it"Hey look, a Camaro and a GTR had a baby.
