S500 Timing chain failure

Any ideas what parts could be damaged from timing chain failure at highway speed ? Are the 5.0 engines interference engines ? Would you prefer to repair or replace complete engine ?

When the chain fails the pistons embrace the valves, most likely a valve job (heads off). A non rebuilt engine could give you similar results,
