Win the Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM and complete your 1998 GT collection in the all new 6-day special event–Silver Tourer!
— What's new in this update ( Mercedes Update (v6.4)).
After conquering the FIA GT Championship, MERCEDES-BENZ set its sights on competing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1998, which it had not been at since 1991. However, Le Mans presented a different challenge from that offered in FIA GT, in that the race distances were nearly one tenth the distance covered at Le Mans. Therefore, MERCEDES-AMG set about altering the CLK-GTR in order to meet the new demands required at Le Mans. This new car would become known as CLK-LM, with the LM designation standing for Le Mans.
Debuting at the 1998 season of Le Mans, the twin CLK-LMs entered were immediately quick. The two car team took the pole, ahead of custom built open cockpit Le Mans prototypes. However, MERCEDES-AMG's belief of the M119LH engine's reliability and capability was proven wrong as both cars suffered engine failures within the first few hours of the race, leaving MERCEDES-BENZ dejected.
The MERCEDES-BENZ CLK-LM is available in 1 series:
