Caballo de Fuerza [Ingles], o Potencia de Motor al Freno


Explanation:
Puede ser cualquiera de los dos, ya que 'bhp' se usa en lugar de 'caballo de vapor' medida un poco obsoleta, y 'Potencia de Motor al Freno' es una medida de potencia que se obseva al aplicar un freno especial al eje del motor, en el banco de pruebas, de ahi el termino 'al freno'.
Luck!
