Conversion Factors


Recommended Posts

I like to read http://www.motoring.co.za

They seem to get a lot more interesting cars in South Africa than what we get here.

However, when they write about a car, they don't list horsepower, they list kilowatts.

So here's the easy math formula for doing the conversion:

Convert Kilowatts to Horsepower Kilowatts x 1.34

Convert Horsepower to Kilowatts Horsepower x 0.746

For example the new Aston Martin DB9's street version is rated at 340kW (456 hp) and their racing version is rated at 450 kW (603 hp).


If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.
