Could be 505 brake horse power vs 510 horsepower or maybe it’s a firmware update Alfa did? 🤷🤷🤷

anyways, be careful with the active front carbon fiber splitter, I just slightly damaged mine going over a pothole or object at night going very slow...

Different countries report the hp differently based on how it's calculated. US is 505 but I think some European countries report 510 so you may have gotten that

Perhaps since countries have different emissions restrictions, some bump it up to 510HP. I know the North American ones are 505HP, and most European ones are 510HP. Could also be different types of gas/petrol used as well.

What is HP compared to BHP and PS?
The metric equivalent of a single horsepower, referred to as 1 PS, equals 4,500 kilogram-metres per minute, which rounds to 32,550 foot-pounds per minute, or 0.9863 of a horsepower.

The above explains the difference between the euro rated 510ps vs the 505hp NAFTA rating.

They have metric horses in Italy?

WTF don't they use KW, a proper metric unit?
