After the car comes out and the aftermarket get there hands on this car you prob can get some lightweight stuff like flywheel, rims, carbon fiber hoods, carbon fiber intakes and lightweight exhaust to take some lbs off.

I think it's 2700 lbs. Not 100% on that though.
I found the 5-door weights in a Swiss dossier. Nothing on the 4-door though.

2.0L manual = 1235 kg (2722 lb)
+ 25 kg for auto = 1260 kg (2778 lb)

The 2.3 isn't available in Europe, but I derived it from the overseas MZ6 2.0 and 2.3. Wt difference is about 75 lb:

2.3L manual = 1269 kg (2797 lb)
2.3L auto = 1285 kg (2853 lb)

That's a full 250 lb lighter than the 6i manual!
