Hello,

I don't know that it would get heavier: crash worthiness is the raison d'Ítre of the doors and the way this car is designed. It has a surrounding "tub" of steel, with bulheads supporting it in both directions. They claim a very low deflection in that structure, during a high energy crash; with the crush zones slowing down the deceleration process.

Check their web site for specifics.

It's even more gorgeous than before! I think Ireland may need to rewrite the laws on child seats because i'll have to put 3 of them in there!! It's killing me that i won't be able to get this. And if i see one on the roads here, i might just cry!

Yes, those tires look pretty unique -- maybe they are solid or not inflated? They are extremely low profile, and very narrow.
