    Typos and other issues aside, I'm not buying the weight. A roots supercharger weighs at most 175 lbs. Most are far less. So being really generous here, I am supposed to believe that they managed to add over 225 lbs of other components without so much as a single pound saved anywhere else. Or... they added over 300lbs of other components and offset 75? This is madness!

    Not saying it isn't true, but if it is, this will be the biggest failure in mustang history.

    Supercharger, DCT, additional coolers/lines/brackets, larger diameter rotors, larger calipers, larger diameter wheels. Yup, this is how you get this fat without fiber wheels, CC rotors, RSD, composite body panels, etc. Hence my view that this will be the initial GT500 model for sale and a lighter version to come. Still gonna be a fatty.

    Wow I hope the specs are wrong. this is starting to make a base model 10 speed GT look Superior in straight line performance in comparison to the GT500. I was hoping Ford would do 800 + for this GT500 and aluminum body. I hope the final product weighs no more than 3600 or 3700 lb and has closer 2 if not more than 800 horsepower.

    Keep dreaming. 3950 - 4000 seems realistic. The ZL1 in its heaviest form is knocking on the door of 4100.

    and I almost sold my R. I'm on the list for a 500R - will wait it out now. Better to trade in on it anyway.

    If you look at the leaked document it states vehicle curb weight/vehicle gross weight. Just my opinion but I think the weight that’s listed is the gross and not the curb weight. The gross weight includes liquids, driver, and passengers. If true it would bring the curb weight down substantially.

    I don't think so. They are showing curb (VCW) and gross (GVW). Simply put, she's a fatass of a car.

    I think regardless of the weight it is going to surprise many in acceleration. Still! I am not parting with my Miata in comparison weighing 3650 R.

    My '90 coupe is under 3k. Another 1,000+ is pretty crazy. That's like strapping 2 Oprah's to the car permanently.

    That's almost 20, correction, 30 years ago man!! And the F body chasis is flimsy in comparison. Honest truth is that all new cars are getting heavier. Even the all CF body GT350 only manages to save 200lbs or so over OEM.

    3900-4000 was exactly what I was expecting. If it actually ends up being 4200+ that's going to be very disappointing.

    Same.

    And honestly, this document could simply have a bunch of place holders too. Which I think is the real case.
