Your Ex-showroom price for Getz CRDi was our on-road price.

Apart from that,the cheaper cars will have lower price/bhp ratio as price is not directly related to bhp figures.Even if a Lamborghini was to be made locally,to achieve the price/bhp ratio of the Nano it would need to have around 3500bhp.
I apologize sir, I was just making a joke and now I've understood what you meant when you mentioned deflating BHPs.
But, like a lot of people on the forum know, Getz CRDi is a hot hatch and am just glad that we bought it, and for me it gives the most bang for the bucks among our 3 cars at home.

Seems like an interesting statistic.

Some figures of my cars:

BMW 525d - price 45,00,000/ bhp 204 = 22,058 Rs./bhp
Audi Q5 - 45,21,000/ bhp 175 = 25,834 Rs./bhp
VW Touareg V6 - 48,00,000/ bhp 245 = 19,592 Rs./bhp

Interesting topic but purely academic, no doubt. Otherwise the Nano would be considered the best VFM car in the market

I think this thread does not make much sense because:
1. Dynamics matter more than outright power. Classic example: Ritz Vs Swift. Even though both cars have the same engine with same bhp rating and Ritz is cheaper than the Swift, the Swift is way more fun to drive.
2. The higher variants of a car are priced much higher these days because of the safety kit on offer. Going by the logic on this thread, the lower variants are much more bang for the buck, which is not right.

As I understand, the purpose of this thread is just to see how much pulling power you get for the money you've paid. In other words - "Bang for your buck" as the title suggests. Not necessarily meaning to say that a car with more horsepower/$ is better than one with lesser horsepower/$.

Based on the few posts on this thread you can easily conclude that Indian horses come cheap, followed by Korean and Japanese horses. German horses are tricky, esp those VAG ones. Those Audi carriages will cost you a bomb. Whereas put the same horses in a Skoda or a VW carriage and what do you get? - Bang for your buck.

Lower variants are certainly more bang for the buck. No safety features = more "bangs" per buck

Perhaps (smiles per kilometre)*10000/price would be a good measure of a car's ability to please. Slightly less easily worked out, but possibly more accurate, since plenty of cars with lots of power are pretty boring to drive.

You've completely missed the point if you think this thread has anything to do with what's better or worse. It's just a simple, fun statistic. Obviously more expensive cars are more sophisticated and come with way better suspension, brakes, creature comforts, safety features and what have you, at the cost of being very much more expensive. Also the power to weight metric is your most basic performance indicator, but this thread isn't about any of that! At any rate what matters most is purely subjective and varies from person to person.

That ain't fair! You need to only take the ex-showroom or onroad price. A used car price cannot be compared with a new car price.

A Nano which is seven years old will be dirt cheap compared to the Accord, and so it will still beat the Accord.

On an innovative thread starting spree aren't we Karl ? Nice one though. As far as BHP goes I guess I've paid a heck of a lot per bhp.

19,167/bhp for the A4 3.0 TDi
14,686/bhp for the Laura Lnk
9091/bhp for the Civic in 2006.
You just couldn't start a rupees per NM thread, could you, Mr. M3
