Has anybody experience with hte weight of a 308 stell car and a 308 resina?
In all books a have is a difference from 1090 to 1430 kg.
Is a steel car with same equipmet really 200 kg more than a resina?

Well, it is the difference between steel and plastic. Plastic weighs less, I don't have exact figures, but it will make a difference.

1979 308 GTB weighs about 1300 kg and I think was already the steel one. Difference is less than you might have found!

Sorry I don't know either but bear in mind that the steel panels are thin while the fibreglass ones are damn thick! There probably isn't as much difference as you may think. :)

The weight savings with the fiberglass 308 GTB is variable depending on which version you have (Euro, North American, Australian, Japanese).

With my 1976 North American version 308 GTB Fiberglass, I probably have approximately a 100 kg weight savings over a steel North American version as I have a Euro ANSA exhaust mounted. The original thermal reactor muffler (residing in my garage) was very heavy. My car retains the heavy impact-resistant bumpers and the two air pumps.
