This is what aroused DeMuro`s curiosity. After finding an AWD test bed at AWE Tuning near Philadelphia, he ran his R-32 stock three times on it to be sure. The wheel power was constant at 281 hp. Basically, the car achieves 320 hp. This means that Japanese automakers have been manufacturing cars with more than 300 hp for the duration of the deal. They did not write down the numbers. Doug DeMuro of Jalopnik is proud to own a Nissan R-32 GT-R, a car produced at the beginning of a gentlemen`s agreement between all Japanese automakers. This agreement consisted of limiting all ps of production cars to less than 300, as it was believed that this made driving safer. A gentlemen`s agreement or gentleman`s agreement is an informal, non-legally binding agreement between two or more parties. It is usually oral, but it can be written or simply understood as part of a tacit agreement by convention or mutually beneficial label. The essence of a gentlemen`s agreement is that it relies on the honour of the parties for its execution, instead of being enforceable in one way or another. It is different from a legal agreement or contract.
Gentlemen`s agreements were a widespread discriminatory tactic that, according to reports, was more common than restrictive alliances to maintain the homogeneity of upper-class neighborhoods and suburbs in the United States.  The nature of these agreements has made it extremely difficult to prove or prosecute them and have been long after the U.S. Supreme Court`s decisions in Shelley v. Kraemer and Barrows v. Jackson.  One source indicates that gentlemen`s agreements “undoubtedly exist,” but that their use has declined sharply.  Dissent continued to grow as foreign automakers built increasingly powerful cars, which limited the Japanese overseas auto market until the decisive (and surprisingly recent) year of 2004. In July 2004, former JAMA president Itaru Koeda went to the press to tell them the truth – JAMA had not found a link between speed and death on the roads. Koeda asked for the end of the gentleman`s agreement. That`s what happened to motorcycles. Look at the Honda blackbird. They competed for maximum speed, the Suzuki released the Hayabusa, which is the name of a bird that eats mules.
There was apparently a letter from the government and an agreement to end the topspeed wars of the 1990s There was an agreement between Japanese automakers not to drive a car with more than 276 horsepower. This of course meant that all high-end sports cars had well over 276 hp and were simply rated/promoted by the manufacturer with “276” hp. A gentleman`s agreement, defined in the early 20th century as “an agreement between men who were committed to controlling prices,” has been called by one source the loosest form of “pool.”  It has been reported that such agreements are found in all kinds of industries and are numerous in the steel and steel industry.  I hate the 80s until the zero years of the Japanese car market. It is full of interesting cars, even fast cars. Under the gentlemen`s agreement, all the cars they built were limited to 276 horsepower. And to make them quickly and keep pace with cars manufactured in the rest of the world, they must stand out in all other aspects, that is, the compliance of landing gear, landing gear, materials. So what you have in the end are amazing cars. According to the Japan Times, this informal deal had its roots in the mid-70s, when Japan began to have a real problem with groups collectively called Bosozoku – motorcycle street gangs and cars that ignored traffic rules and sowed chaos. . .
