Yes. Well technically only one leafspring that runs perpendicular to the vehicle.

Well that paints an entirely different picture than what the fellas at TopGear were suggesting. I immediately thought of the traditional leaf spring setup like in the back of my XJ. Perhaps TopGear should have been more clear. But, simply saying "it has leaf springs" makes it look like at outdated piece of American garbage, which I'm pretty sure was the angle they were going for.

Never got a chance to ride in the new one (ZR1) but I got to ride & drive my buddy's Z06. That thing is MEAN! Plus the 1-piece carbon fiber front end is pretty damn cool. That thing is almost legal suicide, I'm suprised he hasn't killed himself yet.

Evo's are really fun!!! I drove one of the new 09's with the turbo and all bells and whistles. I like. I still think that the new camaro will be the best one yet.

Only the Corvettes with the towing package upgrade come with the leaf springs...
