You may be referring to the 5-litre twin turbo diesel.

Hello,
No, Mercedes-Benz hasn't produced a diesel motor larger than 4-litre for its passenger vehicles. The 4-litre V8 diesel motor remains the largest for now.
During the second oil crisis in 1979, the Americans received the 300CD whilst the Europeans were denied the diesel option for the coup. However, the Europeans received the excellent 5-litre V8 motors in the 500SL whilst Americans made do with horrible 3,8-litre V8 motors in 380SL. Again, to whet the American anger, Mercedes-Benz offered the 560SL exclusive to the American market. Then, Mercedes-Benz omitted R129 SL60 and SL73 for the Americans in the 1990s.

I like the idea of a diesel sports car, say, a 300SLD. What with that engine in the new E-class, it isn't as silly as it sounds.
