They probably weight a good amount but you have to look at how those motors put out power, power to weight ratio is important to look at and consider. Just look at what else is going on right now on a production level and you'll see it's worth the added weight. Tesla's are a good example.

What can Hennessy actually strip from the NSX? There's not much of the interior they can take out.

As for power, maybe supercharger and a tune?

That is true.. if they were to really strip the NSX the only thing they can do is really gut the interior which in turn would make it look horrendous in there. So that's pretty much out of the window. Supercharger and tune does sound good, possibly even a smaller gear set for the electric motors to bump the power up ? That'll be interesting if they could figure out how to push more out of the electric side as well.

Gut the interior, lighter custom carbon fiber panels and the like. Maybe even lighter wheels.

All carbon fiber paneling would be pretty nice. Maybe some red striping in certain areas just to make it look not as fully track monster. Lighter wheels is often a hit or miss. Sometimes they need to end up going bigger and forged for traction purposes with a much larger tire.

how much weight can you really save by changing out all of the body panels to carbon fiber? Aren't they already made of lightweight materials?

It's not much but on a track every bit counts. Even on a non professional level guys that take their cars to the track do this. Plus they might have to do it anyways to make changes where the panels have to be removed. Installing them back might not serve any purpose, just cosmetic.

Was referring to interior panels. But, precisely. Cutting down on any weight at all on the track is significant. Putting the panels back on will just create inconveniences so why not leave it off

Some race cars even have one or a couple massive panels that cover the entire back end, formed around seating area as the main part. Maybe we could see that

I mean... it would look nice, but I don't think the interior aesthetics are of a concern in something like Pikes Peak. And adding those panels is still additional unnecessary weight.
