    I think it's rare to find a car that doesn't have an inaccurate power rating. :p

    They just follow the "gentleman's agreement" figures. There is no physical possibility of a 350hp vehicle being as fast in a straight line as a Blancpain spec GT3 car. The minimum the JAF GT300 cars run at is 400bhp.

    I thought that GT300 cars were just 300 bhp... Didn't know that. My bad :(

    GT300 cars ARE rated at about 300-345bhp. The GT3s that race in Super GT are heavily restricted to about 350bhp, and they don't have the aero kits that the Japanese GT300 cars have. So you are totally wrong about 450bhp GT300s.

    TVR Griffith 500 '94

    Dealership lists hp as 319 hp and 320 ft-lbs of torque.

    Garage says 340 hp and 351 ft-lbs of torque.

    Basically the specs are wrong because they cannot be right because the car as presented never existed.

    This was actually the maximum power that Japanese manufacturers could advertise for a while. IIRC the Mitsu Lancer Evo IX had ~330hp, but it was advertised as having only 276 because of the law. Stupid, I know.

    I know that, one of the many gentlemen's agreements.

    What I was referring to was the power being shown deliberately underpowered.

    Oh, so you're saying that in the game it literally only has 276hp as opposed to the 330 it's supposed to have?

    When you buy a car that has 276 hp, in the garage it will say something totally different.

    The only time I haven't seen this to be the case is the Buick GNX '87 which isn't Japanese but has 276 hp.

    No.

    I'm talking about the GT300 BRZ - it shows that horsepower but in reality it's higher.

    But it's been confirmed that nothing's wrong so there's no point continuing this discussion anyway.

    The car description for the Jaguar XJR-9 says it won 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1998 not 1988

    I don't want this fixed but the LP670-4 '09 is about 150-400kg too heavy. Also its gotta be impossible that THAT many cars have 276 HP.
    Also the two C5 corvettes basicially have identical weight and PP but one is 30HP less

    or maybe just japanese emmisions laws
    (the most popular cars in Japan are the Prius and the Prius C (Aqua) due to their emmisions laws)

    Yes, the Japanese emissions restricted the power up to 276 HP (known as 280 PS in Japan).

    Looks like the US version have some wonky translation issues, given that most of description errors ITT are mostly found in the US version of the game.

    WCS is citing the marketed HP, not the actual HP. ;)

    There was a gentlemens agreement in 1990 between the Car manufacturers and the heads of the japanese road safty service if I recall correctly. Every car was allowed to have 280ps maximum. It was made to prevent traffic accidents and competing between Manufacturers for more and more power (which results into traffic accidents aswell)

    Well officially every manufacturer had cars with only 280PS but if you but those cars on a Dyno you will see that most of them actually had 300+hp. Kind of funny IMO.

    But in October 2005, Honda officially broke the agreement at its Legend (Acura RL in the U.S.) press conference when it unveiled the model's 300-hp, 3.5-liter V-6.

    thanks!. Also pretty funny that 3 generations of STi's, the FD3s, R32, R33 and R34 and Evo 1-9 hadn't broken it and now Honda does it over a family car.

    The 2000 model is newer than the '98.

    Or the 2000 has a bigger ashtray. Can't remember exactly.

    It isn't a big deal though. ;)

    In reality, the 1998 was the last year of the Series VII. According to automobile-catalog.com, the changes from the Series VII to the Series VIII bumped the power from 261 hp/217 ft-lb to 276 hp/232 ft-lb.

    PD didn't exactly follow reality here.

    No one GT3-spec car race in SUPER GT are restricted to poorly 350bhp. For example, the Hatsune Miku SLS GT3 from TeamUKYO this year run with 560bhp. The JAF-GT spec GT300 car is basically a prototype car with silhouette from street cars. Also, it's very lightweight than GT3 car, who is based directly from a street version.

    My bad... Didn't know that the RX-7 FD had two facelifts. Now I see why are two Mazda RX-7 Type RS's. The 1998 is the Series VII while the 2000 model is the Series VIII. ;)
