Apparent leak of HP and weight. Make of it what you will.

Tl;dr 720HP @ 7500 RPM, 650 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM, 4225lbs curb weight.

Power number is pretty much what I was thinking. But that weight?! :facepalm:
Top speed is subject too, as is the rear gear ratio. I'm skeptical at this point.

If that’s true, an insider here has been telling us this information for 6 months. I’m not surprised. In fact I have posts where I tallied parts and weights, and yes, 4100 was definitely possible. 4200 curb is believable.

Lotsa...
Hope that's the mule weight and not the actual production car.

Makes the s550 GT not so porky anymore...

I like to disassemble things.
CF driveshaft, about time it came back.

The weight makes me think that this is not a version with CF wheels, RSD, etc, and more of a "base" unit.

Agreed. Still I hope it’s not true.

I’m feeling the hydraulics and fluids in the active aero might be the culprit.

Same story as the ford GT.

My two cents... On the first box, is that a typo..?

[Diesel, Patrol, Turbo...]

Should that be Petrol, or more typically, Fuel Type?

Odd to see this "leaked" out... I'm skeptical too. :inspect:

First I'm hearing about hydraulics. Is it going to raise and lower too?

7-8-9-10 speed autos do weigh more than manual gearboxes. Bigger brakes, wheels, and tires, supercharger, intercoolers, bigger oil coolers, radiators, etc... All add up. More powereans more cooling which means more weight.

Not suspension hydraulics. I should have specified. Aero only hydraulics, and that’s still speculative. But I can see some clues in the camo cars.
