I would have to agree 3000#'s would be a good guess!

I'm guessing 2800 to 2900#. I have a similar setup and it used to weigh 2820# without driver but that was with the FE engine and a C6 tranny. I haven't weighed the car with the 466 and C4.

Also my car doesn't have lexan windows etc......... Only fiberglass panel is the hood. I don't have the front and rear bumpers so that shaved some weight off the car.
