Mercedes-Benz CLK LM. LM stands for Le Mans as the car was originally prepared by Mercedes-AMG to compete at the 24-hours event on the famous French race track.
The team decided not to use the original CLK GTR competing in the FIA GT races as they believed that the V12 AMG engine would not be capable to run for such a long period. Instead they installed the M119 V8 engine used in other racing series. Of course, the displacement was enlarged so that it was able to produce more power. Peak horsepower is around 600 (450 kW) and the race car runs to speeds up to 330 km/h (205 mph).
Along with the engine replacement, there were other changes to the car as well. Aerodynamics were improved, the roof was lowered and a new air engine intake was crafted. In total Mercedes-AMG produced 4 racing cars and one road-legal to meet FIA homologation rules for 1998.
