The SN65 project

Robert Julian is now to the point of bolting things into the car

For those of you unfamiliar, picture a project at SVT.. where they build a
lookalike using 65 fastback skin stampings on an '03 Cobra chassis with
powertrain and interior

I'm very curious as to what the finished vehicle will weigh. I seem to
remember Mr. Julian mentioning a weight of around 2500 Lbs. Seems a tad
optimistic, but if that's the case, that puppy's gonna fly.

I cant see how it can possibly weigh less than an 03 Cobra Coupe

Re: The SN65 project

Yeah, considering some of the extra bracing I've seen added and the
attention given to strenghten the chassis, there isn't a whole lot of room
for weight loss.
If anything, I would expect heavier.

I just scanned that thread looking for the estimate, and couldn't find it.
Either it was in another forum or I have confused his project with something
else.

I forget what he said at the open house, but it was a fair amount over 3000
