The configuration of the characters is standard MBz now. The letters
are first and the number usually has some relevance to engine
To the best of my knowledge there have been no 7.5 litre motors put
out by MBz. However, there are plenty of tuners who bore, stroke,
super-, and turbocharge and will attempt some imaginative euphamism to
reflect the power of their car.
This sounds like nothing more than that.
