A 2019 Camaro ZL1 weighs 4113. What's your point?

 

That's the convertible. The coupe weighs 3883#

A GT350 weighs 3,781 pounds

 

How in the hell are they adding 444 of weight to it? I can see maybe an extra 200lbs or so with the super charger and plumbing...but its not that much different then GT350 mechanically-unless the 7 speed DSG is a weight hog?

It's those pesky "heated and cooled triple overhead testicle holders"'

Adding a supercharger, plus associated plumbing and cooling and HUGE brakes...........on top of an already heavy car, is it really a surprise?

That is a big grill compared to my '09 GT500.

Big HP compared to your 09 too. More power, more cooling.

Big heavy supercharger, big heavy transmission and a big heavy axle to handle the power

Good point 

When you think about it, it’s really simple to understand why the GT500 weighs 4200lbs.  The additional hardware you mentioned plus I believe the Tremec DCT weighs quite a bit more than the 6 speed in the 350.  From all accounts, weight won’t hold this car back from reaching supercar performance metrics.

They designed a brand new hood latch for it. That should say all that needs to be said.
