What is so special about the left 560SL motor mount?

The left mount is about $45.00, the right about $16.00. The mounts for my '85 380SE were about $13.00 each, but are identical. The 116 engine mounts for a 380SL are less than $20.00 each, and right/left are different. The 117 engine mounts for a 560SEL are $13.00 or so each, identical L/R.
Can anyone tell me what is so radically different about the 560SL left/driver side mount to cost so much more, or is it a minor difference (like redrilling the subframe mount bolt hole) that can be accomodated by modifying a right side mount, or a 560SEL left side mount?
