Is the car a standard genuine S1 Exige? If so, the weight looks about right.

That’s light. Mine was 888kg with me in it and a near full tank. Taking off 75kg (me), 2kg (clothes), 30kg (40 litres of fuel) 107kg. That gives 781kg.

50kg more. My car is standard, aircon and all factory extras. It’s a big difference, maybe the scales were wrong!

How much would the Air Con assembly weight?
Note:
You have also to consider that on my car the front bonnet, the tailgate assembly and the passenger seat
were still missing.
Not to forget the aluminum tank and radiator.
