If anybody has ever come across the BARE WEIGHT of a murena chassis (like when it was pulled out of the zink bath), please let us all know. I'm curious of knowing how much "all the other stuff" actually weighs.

Furthermore, weighing of the seats would also be cool.

I'm not sure, but think that Murena chassis is arround 300kg and passengers seats are very light, somewhere arround 4kg? Drivers seat cca 8kg?

Some time ago Simons were selling a bare Murena 1.6 chassis on eBay, I asked them how much it weighed and they wrote me that it was appx. 200 Kg.

Wonderful GP,

That's a substantial weight reduction in my opinion.
If you also know the weight of the other seats, please submit  Cool

Best,

Update from:

http://www.designerwheels.co.uk/Alloy_wheel_packages/Carbon_Magnesium_780.aspx:

"Reducing un-sprung weight by 1kg has the effect of reducing your cars body (sprung weight) by 6kg!  This means that if one wheel is 2kg lighter than the wheel it replaces it is like removing 48kg from your cars body".

I never knew that!  Shocked

I know that there is some truth to it..... but I don't trust it when its written next to a set of £5,138.15 light weight wheels!

Here is something to read about flywheels... think Wheels and tires are mentioned as well :
