You can see the front license plate location.

And anyone care to comment on what looks like a leaf spring on the FRONT?

There Goes...

There goes the whole airflow theory if they put the license plate in that area. It will make the front look like a Buck Tooth Squirrel.

Nice find Chris, thanks for sharing!

I couldn't care less about the front license plate bracket. I won't be running one, even though my state requires it. It is an upgrade over the crap they designed for the C6, however.

The leaf spring on the front is nothing new at all. It's been used for years....at least since the C5.

I don't think the front end design is what alot of us are worried about. For all I know it will be a slam dunk the greatest design ever but I have my doubts. Always said I will reserve final judgement until I can see a non-spy pic of the car and honestly I can't wait to see it!

As for the drawings, I do see slotted rotors and Front License plate but other than that I have nothing. Gotta put the plate somewhere at least this one looks like it was "built" into the desgin and not an after thought.
