Then I don't believe it. I think a lot of effort went into weight reduction. I am expecting sub 4K.
The part that looks off/fake to me is,
Doors/seats. 2/4

And yes, I agree with you. I hope it is under 4,000 pounds.

To me, all of those figures look like they were written with a mouse in Photoshop on top of an empty standard R&T test sheet, by someone without a steady hand.

You may be right.
If I had to guess I would say it’s fake but who knows.

They just look like it's a PDF filled in using a stylus on a tablet to me.

I've got a strong understanding that it is over 4K.

It looks legit to me. The only thing I would question is the 132mph trap speed. That seems high considering the test car apparently had the Track pack with the big wing.

Right at 4k is well done on that front considering the size of some of the components, and what's in it. The front rotors are 16.5" and 43 mm thick!

I'm less and less confident in Ford's ability to do truly great things with the chassis of these cars after recent learnings.

^^^^ Totally agree, 4037 lbs is a win. If that trap speed is correct than we have a deadly performer on our hands.

The base car, closer to sea level, with a good driver is going to be a straight line beast.

A pretty reputable source on another forum has stated more than a few times that it won't be.

Any car capable of a 1.9 60’ and 132 mph trap speed should manage a 10 second E.T.
