Firstly I would like to know where these quotes came from!
To be honest I think the top model in the T series range should not have a power figure supplied. Make the performance do the talking but not disclose the power figure. It makes a statement, and as the premium model I think the power figure should be second running to a few other things. Like DR XR says this will only work while it has the performance to match the competition.
Engine outputs can be understated or overstated but when the cars are run by the mags the figures generally don't lie.
For me those times are more important than what the manufacturer claims the engine might have.
As you come down the range the figure @ the engine becomes more important to the client, but the performance won't be any less important.
I really do have concerns as to where this might end. It certainly can't go unchecked because at the very best insurance companies will step in and make the decision for us.
I have no problem with the very top model in the range going into orbit, but when the conversation gets back to base model cars I am not so sure. I mean look through the mags and see what you have to pay to get into a 250kw car anywhere else in the world.
