A few manufacturers are notorious for showcasing false power outputs on their vehicles. While we won’t mention their names now, it’s a fact that their cars always seem so underwhelming compared to the numbers on paper.
This time, however, we are focusing on something entirely different. The six automobiles you’re about to see are famous for a completely different reason. Their power outputs were a lot higher than expected! Although this might seem like a counterproductive move to some, there are many reasons why this was the case. First of all, back in the day, the insurance costs were directly proportional to the horsepower numbers, and manufacturers were forced to adjust in any way possible.
Furthermore, Japanese companies had a gentlemen’s agreement when it came to this sort of thing, and due to that reason, the Nissan Skyline, for example, was said to be around 276hp, while the real output was far greater. It’s no wonder why these cars were so good on the track! To find out which other vehicles complete this list, click on the video below and enjoy the show!
