Cool Broken timing chain 1995 S500 Long

Hi guy's,

I am new on the forum, just wanted to check if anybody ever heard before ot the timing chain of a S500 W140 braking???

I made a video of the damage (a hole in the motor)...

It happened when just cruising on the highway

Should I fix or sell....

How did you figure the chain broke? I see cut on the cover from loose chain, but broken chain would mean major failure.
Some MB engines had issues with tensioners or guides, so check in the proper car section with owners of the same cars.
