    Interested in knowing what a near stock wagon weighs with auto + recaro - roof.

    I know the car is probably around #500 heavier than my old car.

    Well my wagon, auto, recaro, roof car is around 4,500 lbs with some gas in it.

    Remove the roof and probably save a little bit of weight but probably 4450-4500 depending on how much gas is in it

    It's amazing how heavy these cars are. Did they make the subframe out of lead? My C5 Z06 weighs <3,100 lbs.

    Right...yet if I push in on anywhere on the rear quarter skin with my finger, I see the metal flex. Remember that the platform was already there (cts-non V) and some things were added to stiffen it, then a great big V8 was shoehorned in there and some additional suspension parts and beefy brakes and trannies. Imagine if GM really tossed us a bone and gave us a 20+ gal fuel tank on top of it.

    Not a surprise to me, I guess.

    Why the coupe isn't a LOT lighter is a surprise though. Was that not a frame just for the V-coupe or was that frame also shared with the Camaro at the time? Then, why was it not specifically designed to be light ....being that it was a frame born as a performance/sports car?

    On the other side, we have the 'Vette. Born & raised to be light & fast (save for the early '80s units). Never built for any model other than that.

    I would think it's for the same reason as sedans and wagons..designed with a 3.6L base model in mind.

    My registration lists the unladen weight as 4192 for my 2013 coupe. How accurate is this number? I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet.

    This is what my 2012 automatic sedan weighed with no extra stuff in the car, nobody in the car, and with a little under a half tank of gasoline.

    Even w/recaros and A6 its not that much of a difference, want to say mine weighed similar or 4180 with 1/4 tank or less bone stock. I have it written on a slip somewhere. Just thinking if you have an ice box, bigger intercooler, and odds and ends it probably can add almost 80 lbs to the car. Hell even the a weapon x hood adds like 2 lbs.

    Did they give you any crap for wanting to do a car?? I need to try this, always wonder about the accuracy of the track scales when there isnt an event going on.

    They did not care. Apparently it is common for people who are moving cross country or out of country to weigh their vehicles so that the shipping companies can get the quotes correct.

    The process is not hard. You just drive up into any one of three segmented pieces of concrete, press the button, talk to the attendant, they will tell you to drive off and come in to pay the $11 fee, and then you will get your receipt with the weight on it. You can see from my receipt that there are three axles that can be weighed, thus the three segments of concrete that comprise the scale. I chose the drive axle segment as the fitment was just right for an entire sedan to fit into.

    That's crazy, I recently paid my car off and have no intention to sell. I might get brave and lexan the roof, remove all air bags. race seat, remove sound dampening material, welds, Race brakes, cut where I can. DEF KEEP AC IN south florida.

    I want to get to 4.000lbs with me in it. I'm sure som1 has done it, wonder whats the lightest anyone has gotten a V to weigh. I know people want their Cadillac to remain a Cadillac, comfortable blah blah. Well Porsche offers the 911 GT3 RS for a reason.

    Pretty much sums it up. These things are big fat pigs. I never thought I would actually own a car that makes the SS look like a lightweight.
