Exclamation So is it 414 HP or 420 HP - the tech specs say 420 BHP ?

Greetings,

The second to last document, before the 2010 GTS - states the 2007 E92 coupe (and others) as 420 bhp - so what is it ?

420 or 414 ??


Cheers,
Merlin

Euro cars rated at 420, North America at 414 HP.

I'm trying to find if the e92 ever came with Carbon Ceramic brakes. I keep searching and all the turns up are the Brembo upgrades. I couldn't find it on this sheet. Does anyone know if they came from the factory in the US with them, and what year?

Its just a different standard/unit of measurement.
PS/Metric HP/DIN HP vs Imperial HP/Mechanical HP/SAE HP.
Germany, Japan, Italy use the former. USA & UK use the latter.
Hence 420 / 414.
But the engines are rated for exactly the same output, 309 kilowatts (kW).
In fact, if you do a cross conversion between the different units of measurements, they prove to be identical.

No. M-cars didn't have a CCB option until the F-chassis.
