bhp/l
Explanation:
bhp stands for "brake horse power". If you want to translate/convert: The unit used in Germany would be kW/l, in this case: 231,167 kW/l.

(I've taken the conversion factor from Wikipedia -> CL not too high).

agree  Wendy Streitparth: or if you want to leave it as 310, PS/l Bremsleistung
3 hrs
  -> Indeed, the difference is so small that you might as well use PS here, as it's just an indication. I wouldn't use "Bremsleistung", though.
