Weight for F6

Is there a figure released on the weight of the F6.I would imagine it will be a pretty heavy car with the similiar options and features of the GT.

Re: Weight for F6

I presume that will have some relation to the series II and if it has had any weight loss. But these cards seem to be played close to their chest.

Re: Weight for F6

I wouldn't think it would weigh much more than the normal XR6T. + or - about 100kg's maybe. What does it have that the XR6T doesn't?

FOR SALE: EA/ED |T5| |2.5' Zorts| |15' EF XR'S| |AU Thermo's| |XR cosmetics|

Advertised as $4000ono. Price is negiotable for a quick sale.

Re: Weight for F6

The XR6T is roughly 50kg lighter than the XR8, however the F6 & GT will have the same gearbox which the XRís do not currently. Whatever the updated GT ends up at, the F6 should be about 40kg lighter.

Re: Weight for F6

I thought XR6T was about 1680kg vs XR8 1800+kg? I cant see F6 being more than about 30-40kg heavier than XR6T MK2.

Will the 6 speed weigh more i thought it was going to be lighter than the 5 speed.What i pressume with all the Luxuries like climate and power windows all round the weight is signifacantly raised.Interesting to see the differences in performance between the XR6T and the F6.

Re: Weight for F6

I think the T56 is 15kgs heavier than the T5, or maybe more. The Typhoon will come in around 1750kg. That is just an assumption.

Re: Weight for F6

It looks like climate ISNT standard after all, so no need to worry about the weight of that one :/

Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!
