    MINI and that table are using the outdated Pferdestärke number, which should be identified as "PS", not "HP."

    PS or Pferdestärke ("horse strength" in German) was replaced by kW as the EU's "legal" measurement of engine power in 1992.
    One PS is about 98.6% of the brake horsepower that most people assume in an apples-to-apples comparison.

    HP = kW/0.745699872 = 135/0.745699872 = 181.037981993914
    PS = kW/0.73549875 = 135/0.73549875 = 183.5489183360271
