its not that much quicker!

I remember a rule if thumb that was approximated 1hp gain on each 10 pounds removed from the car. If my guess is right it will equate to roughly 23hp more than the 335i. And even if my reasoning is somewhat off, but still sort of close, its not going to be that much faster.

That car is tiny and all they could save is 200lbs?! Pathetic. All this coming from the car company using carbon fiber roofs? What happened to lightweight engine materials?
