That sounds very fat. What does 350R weigh?

Yes. What is the pinacle?
I was impressed when I purchased my 2011 Mustang Shelby Gt 500
that had the new aluminum block and a whopping 550 hp.!

That's just a little over the GT350. Not bad

525 lbs heavier than a GT350 is "just a little"? Seems like the ONLY track the GT500 is suitable for is the 1/4 mi kind. Just WAY too heavy for a road course car.

I am reading 4200 lbs on a couple different sites.
The 4200# number is largely regarded as fake news, but we'll see. I think it will be hard to get the weight up that high. With the GT350 around 3700lbs, its hard to imagine adding 500 lbs. I believe I read the DCT didnt add any weight.

The 720 HP number was on that same "leaked" spec sheet as the 4200 lbs. When it was "leaked" last year, there were some lengthy articles about why the document was a fake.
