I was just having a chat with a friend about BHP and Torque and this came up...
Due to its low BHP, would the following be able to reach 160 MPH?
2. Average drag for a road car.
3. 500 lbft @ 1000 RPM
4. Rev limit ? 1001 RPM
5. Pefect gearing, CVT if you like.
It only has 95 BHP, which in a 1500kg road car would never be enough to traditionally get to 160, it would probably only rach 115 MPH.
Will the 500lbft make up for that? Is the BHP irrelivent?
