<br> Well, just bought a mint 1986 500 SL(I think the 500sl was only a 1985, but thats what the registration says)<br> The car has distinct differences from the 560sl, and it has the european plate holder. So what i want to know is, what engine and horsepower does this car have. It is noticibly faster then my friends 86' 560 SL. What other things were different, and please give me any info you have. Thanks. Mike<br> <br>

Mike,<br> <br> Congratulations! Your engine type a number are: 107.046 chassis, body type W107 E50, engine number 117.960/2 (you can check this on the intermediate flange between gear box and engine (right-hand side). Unencumbered with cats the BHP in Euro specs is 231bhp/4750rpm. Once federalised it drops to 205 with two cats and 196 with three, and if retarded 180.
