Default AU vs BA kerb weight

Iíve been looking at AU and BA XR6ís and there seems to be a massive difference in kerb weight about 200kg other than DOHC what made BAís weigh so much more

Control blade IRS was actually 20kg lighter than the double wishbone AU IRS. But heavier than the live axle AU obviously.
