Damned auto correct - it should read pre-1993 cars

No it right. Early pregnancy 1993 cars had 326hp but later ones had 306hp after they changed from the mechanical fuel injection to electronic fuel injection (129.068 versions onwards). After the face-lift they used the M113 engine which gave slightly less power but had maximum torque much lower in the rev range.

Wrong engine data. This SL500 should have 326 ps. The engine shown above is from R230 SL.
