    I can tell you this, my CC hood might weigh 1/4 to 1/2 of a G5 hood. I don't think you can't gut a G5, add back in all the cage, air jacks, etc. and get down to his weight??
    My car with a cage will be about 3000. Cage adds 130lbs, I'm guessing I'll be taking a little more than that out by gutting it. Air jacks add about 12 lbs. Fire suppression 10-12.
    Then it comes down to tires, he's got Pirelli's on in those pics which weight a whopping 44 lbs LESS than Hoosiers which are already light.
    Later in the article they compare the 500 lbs lighter car to a stock TA.

    I just registered to bid, there's a 6% buyers premium. And there is indeed a reserve on the car

Also won 2 European Supercar Championships and some pretty big class wins including at the 2015 24 Hours of Daytona.
    That's what I thought too and interesting that you confirm that. Thanks!

    There are chassis pics of the car and it looks like a cage is already built in, also the forgeline wheels are probably super light as well.

    I really thought this was a GT3 car, have you considered buying a GT3 car instead of having two '13 SRT Vipers that were converted for track?

    At $300K no. It wont really be any faster in a non-pro divers hands. I'd only buy this one that's up for auction if it goes cheap and then I'd use it for race group and not have to cage my 9 liter car.
    This car would fit nicely in ST1/TT1 i might have to added 100 lbs or so, which I can put where i want so would go way down low in the back right above the diffuser.

    I was going to bid $85K 20 seconds before the end and of course it asked me to log in again and I missed it. $85K wouldn't have met the reserve anyway I'm sure...
