    That horsepower rating is done in groos not net. Net horsepower is used today and it would be between 250 and 275 if it were measured in net.

  10. 345 horsepower is the amount of horsepower that the Cadillac Escalade has today? It's amazing that they were able to make that much horsepower back then! I would definitely take that car out for a spin if it was still existing today.
