The official MB Factory Performance Specifications for Engines M110, M116 & M117 etc


Hello people,

It seems appropriate on a forum like this to at least post the factory perfomance data of the MB engines that most of us own, have owned, or will own. There's lots to consider when buying your next car or even swapping engine combinations etc, and so knowing the basic performance data could help you in determining the best value for your dollar, or even gain a little more appreciation of what you already own. I've decided to initially post the European Specifications, since these engines were sold with the highest specific out-puts, and offer a point of consideration as to OEM replacement parts should you be intending to up-spec your motor to the highest factory state of tune etc etc. I decided to include the 6-cylinder M110, 2.8 ltr in this post ( even though it's 1/2 the size of a 560 ) simply because it's a great & timeless design, and very surprisingly performed much better than its displacement would initially have you think. I'll write in order from the small displacement engines to the large displacement engines.

 

M110, 2.8 ltr in-line 6-cylinder, featuring DOHC, either carburettor or fuel injection, and aluminium cylinder head.

Bore & stroke = 86mm x 78.7mm

Displacement = 2,746 cc

Compression Ratio = 9.0:1

Max HP = 185 bhp @ 6,000 rpm

Max Torque = 170 lb/ft @ 4,500 rpm

 

M103, 3.0 ltr in-line 6-cylinder, featuring SOHC, fuel injection and aluminium cylinder head.

Bore and stroke = 88.5mm x 82.2mm

Displacement = 3,034 cc

Compression Ratio = 10.0:1

Max HP = 190 bhp @ 5,600 rpm

Max Torque = 192 lb/ft @ 4,250 rpm

 

 

M116, 3.5 ltr V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders, fuel injection, and aluminium cylinder heads.

Bore and stroke = 92mm x 65.8mm

Displacement = 3,499 cc.

Compression Ratio = 9.5:1

Max HP = 200 bhp @ 5,800 rpm

Max Torque = 211 lb/ft @ 4,000 rpm

 

M116, 3.8 ltr all aluminium V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders and fuel injection.

Bore and stroke = 92mm x 71.8mm

Displacement = 3,838 cc

Compression Ratio = 9.0:1

Max HP = 218 bhp @ 5,500 rpm

Max Torque = 224.3 lb/ft @ 4,000 rpm

 

M116, 4.2 ltr all aluminium V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders and fuel injection.

Bore and stroke = 92mm x 78.9mm

Displacement = 4,196 cc

Compression Ratio = 9.0:1

Max HP = 218 bhp @ 5,200 rpm

Max Torque = 236 lb/ft @ 3,750 rpm

 

M117, 4.5 ltr V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders, fuel injection, and aluminium cylinder heads.

Bore and stroke = 92mm x 85mm

Displacement = 4,520 cc

Compression Ratio = 8.8:1

Max HP = 225 bhp @ 5,000 rpm

Max Torque = 278 lb/ft @ 3,000 rpm

 

M117, 5.0 ltr all aluminium V-8, Featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders and fuel injection.

Bore and stroke = 96.5mm x 85mm

Displacement = 4,973 cc

Compression Ratio = 9.2:1

Max HP = 240 bhp @ 5,000 rpm

Max Torque = 298 lb/ft @ 3,200 rpm

 

M117, 5.6 ltr all aluminium V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders and fuel injection.

Bore and stroke = 96.5mm x 94.8mm

Displacement = 5,547 cc

Compression Ratio = 8.8:1

Max HP = 227 bhp @ 4,750 rpm

Max Torque = 279 lb/ft @ 3250 rpm

 

M100, 6.9 ltr V-8, featuring SOHC per bank of cylinders, aluminium cylinder heads and fuel injection.

Bore and stroke = 107mm x 95mm

Displacement = 6,834 cc

Compression Ratio = 8.8:1

Max HP = 286 bhp @ 4250 rpm

Max Torque = 405 lb/ft @ 3,000 rpm

 

Please add anymore official MB figures to this post should you have them !

An interesting point to notice & consider with the above figures, is that generally, with the engine displacement increase, the peak power and peak torque figures occur lower in the rpm ranges...Though the outputs are greater...This is not due to deficiencies in design, but likely because of the increased physical properties (mass) of the reciprocating components.
