500SL vs. 560SL 1980's

OK! Here's a question for you guys. Which is quicker and which has more horsepower the euro 500SL or the US 560SL. This has been a burning question for me ever since i got my 500SL. I tried to figure out how to convert DIN to bhp but got lost in translation between the two. I would really like a True answer to this not a guess.

Not sure but...

THe Euro 500 had 240 hp and the 560 had 236 or 238 hp. I think they were about the same but the Euro had no CAT so I think they were faster.

1985 Mercedes 500SL Euro (Gray market)
1995 BMW 520i Euro (Gray market)
1992 BMW 525it Wagon
1994 Honda Del Sol Si
