I know people who've got a discount of 90k on the on-road price of 1.6 i.e, 5.4L-0.90L = 4.5L. Now, 4.5L becomes the on-road price after discounts! If you simply consider the registration+tax = 50K, then the equation is:

4.5L - on-road,
4.00 - (excluding reg & tax)

So, 4,00,000/100 = 4000 INR/BHP !!!

Note: If you calculate with accurate figures, the result is < 4000!

Yes, everybody can see that FIAT is currently the best bang for the buck, but let's hold our leashes. Please stick to Ex-showroom prices. Every manufacturer gives discounts, and they are different in different parts of the country. That would make this thread extremely complicated.

I guess because at that level you're paying for a whole lot more than power alone. Intangible things like exclusivity and bragging rights are terribly expensive.

On a different note, cost per Nm (torque) will be better measurement. You you rev any engine high, bhp will go up but torque won't
