It looks like it's roughly 210 kw which is 281.61 hp

okay, it looks like it's about 400-410 nm which is around 300 lb/ft tq.

So, from that I get 282/300

The Japanese auto makers signed a "Gentlemen's Agreement" I do believe in the late 90s, which said that they will not advertise their cars having more than 276 hp. If you look into it, you will notice that the Evo IX, 350Z, Skyline, etc. are all rated (or should I say underrated) at exactly 276 hp. This is a number that merely reflects the Gentlemen's Agreement while the car is rumored to be putting out around 330 hp at the crank.

This is true, but the gentlemen's agreement was dropped recently which was rumored to be the reason that honda yanked the nsx to build a much, much more powerful version. This is also one of the reason that I keep thinking that they are going to start making more powerful cars to compete in this little horsepower war that's going on.
