I would say the true difference like for like, is less than 50kgs still a great weight saving.
The yellow mini on the DVD has an R1 engine fitted without any modifications to the bodywork. He has acheived this by reversing the engine driving a jackshaft this drives a chain to a heavily modified cut down mini box with only the diff, crownwheel and pinion left in, no reverse. Because the engine is reversed the drive is in the wrong direction and you need the crownwheel and pinion to correct the direction. In this form with all the extra bits I don't think there is any worthwhile weight saving and it still hasn't got a reverse.
I can draw a piccie if required

It would be kinda cool to keep it front engined FWD though.

But the engine at the front would retain the Mini's existing characteristics I guess.
