S2000's are the same - extremely light aluminum hood (~12 lbs or so I think). The CF versions are MUCH lighter.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I'm not saying that it's worth using a CF hood - saving 5 - 10 lbs off a hood is going to make VERY LITTLE DIFFERENCE in a street car or even a mild track car.

2nd EDIT: Regarding the video - That's a nice 350Z! and what a fantastic save!!!
