Manufacturers rate engines based on engine dynos or CRANK horsepower. Not many owners remove the engine from a 2 day old car and dyno it, so assume the OP's numbers are WHEEL horsepower. Also, use a nice conservative estimate of 15% driveline loss and you can see that the car is producing over the published figure, about 265 crank.
