The 2008 Mustang has this option. also it comes with the option of side curtain air bags as well.
Well, they're NOT going to install those heavy options on the car when they weigh it if they're optional. You're comparing it to a car which has all those items as standard and therefore it's going to weigh more. When they become standard equipment on the Mustang I bet the weight will go up.
You are correct about the engine and the roof... but the SS has an aluminum hood too.
