— What's new in this update IMSA GTD Update (v7.1.5).
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 2 series:
- 1998 Season (Endurance GT Racing) motorsports series in the Endurance GT Racing group
- Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM (Exclusive Series) in the Exclusive Series category.
This vehicle was added in the Mercedes Update (v6.4) released in July 2018 and can be unlocked as soon as 1998 Season (Endurance GT Racing) is unlocked (by earning 36 trophies in 2017 Season (Endurance GT Racing)). Fully-upgrading this car, once owned, will unlock Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM (Exclusive Series).
This vehicle can be acquired for 640 with showcase discount. It has also been available for 448 as a 'Get it Now' price, unlocking 1998 Season (Endurance GT Racing).
This vehicle was available to win in the following special event:
- Silver Tourer available in the Mercedes Update (v6.4) released in July 2018, which is now available in the Event Archives.
