Engine is 5.0 Ltr. V8; more than likely engine No. 116 963 .... which denotes euro engine @ 240HP? although 5.0 ltr engines also came in de-tuned 165-225 HP versions. Engine # is stamped left side (LHD) cars engine block right below the head drivers side. Supercharger is an aftermarket installation; never original or AMG equipment.

This is a UK car so 240hp is what the standard version had. I suspect that with a supercharger, it will have a hell of a lot more power. Post on the W126 specific forum. People will be more familiar with these cars there.

With best regards
