On that note peoples, it suddenly makes the XR8 a decent thing. Comparing it to the AUIII the BA XR8 gains 40kw with a weight increase of 130kg.
On that note of weight i got the VY broshure yesterday (no i'm not going to buy one) to confirm the weight of the SS. I have to say it's damn light at around the 1600kg mark.
