The 918 Spyder will weigh about 1700 kg (about 3750 lbs), mostly due to its hybrid powertrain. I donít know about you, but thatís definitely on the portly side as far as a hyper car is concerned. Imagine how much better it would be if it were at least 700 lbs lighter? Sure the hybrid powertrain may give you more power, but itís offset by the extra weight (which leads to many negative effects), so whatís the point?

I read that the new Enzo may weigh just 1100 kg (about 2425 lbs). Iíll believe it when I see it...
