Why so heavy?

Discussion in '1991 Bugatti EB110 GT' started by Benz 280SL, Aug 24, 2003.

  1. Common, i bet my minivan weighs less, or maybe just a little more. This car could be an excellent performer if it could just lose several hundred lbs. It's 700 lbs or more heavier than the SS. WHY?
     
  2. Re: Why so heavy?

    all wheel drive (front, center, and rear differentials, and driveshafts) plus four turbochargers (and all the piping and intercoolers that go along with them). i think that's enough to make this car as heavy as it is.

    And it also got some luxury too.
     
  4. Ah, this car is in no way luxurious. The GT has a few ammentities, such as leather seats, and an air conditioner, but I don't even think it has a radio. The weight comes all from the massive engine, the turbochargers, and the drivetrain.
