This is a huge achievement given the things that add weight to the vehicle relative to 335i: chassis stiffening, engine, clutch, rotors/calipers, tires, cooling system, exhaust system, etc.

I think the list of weight savings items other than composite roof and body panels will look pretty darn impressive once we learn about all of the effort that went into this.

Updating my power to weight list we now have.
  • AM Vantage: 9.5
  • RS4: 9.4
  • Carrera S: 8.8
  • New Carrera S (+20 hp rumored): 8.3
  • F355: 8.3
  • E92 M3 8.3
  • E60 M5: 8.1
  • Corvette C5: 8.0

Boys with an extra .3-.4 seconds per shift with ZSG we are really going to have a on our hands.

Maybe I'm looking at something wrong, but I've got 8.66 for the Audi RS4 with 420hp and weighing 3,638lbs.
