Puissance CV

Question

Sorry for being dense, but what is a "puissance CV" and how do you calculate it? The car in question is 2-litre 241 bhp Honda S2000. Tia

From the archives

It depends for which purposes -- the horsepower is, as you say, 241 HP i.e. 241 CV. For fiscal reasons, 'puissance fiscale' depends on the engine size so it would be 11 for you.
