    OK so I looked it up like you said and it's 375bhp.

    You're either confusing your kw to bhp as 280kw = 375bhp or you read the story about the original Bizzarrini motor where he got it to 350bhp on the dyno for the 350GT before they detuned it to 270bhp for reliability reasons.

    Daytona is the lighter car by 100kg which gives it a slight advantage in the power/weight ratios.

    You might be right and the numbers are wrong but "looking it up" doesn't solve the riddle :p

    375hp is the factory claim, yet a LP400 doesn't feel any quicker than a carby 308, a Daytona has much more "shove in the back" with probably 340 real hp (352 claimed). The Lambo road test cars had uprated engines and lightened chassis - of course Ferrari used those tricks too in the 60's.

    I probably was referring to the original Bizzarini story, but 280hp feels about right when you drive one.

    I guess being what it is and the small amount built, from an investment point of view you could fill it with fresh oil keep it dry and forget about it for 5 years and you’d still be ahead
