The Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR (W297) is a sports car and race car that was built by Mercedes-AMG, performance and motorsports arm of Mercedes-Benz. Intended for racing in the new FIA GT Championship series in 1997, the CLK GTR was designed primarily as a race car, with the road cars necessary in order to meet homologation standards being secondary in the car's design. Thus the limited production road-going cars are considered racing cars for the road. After competing successfully in 1997, the race car was upgraded in 1998 for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and renamed the CLK LM. Following the construction of the CLK LMs and the CLK GTR road cars, the project would end in 1999 by being replaced by the Mercedes-Benz CLR Le Mans prototype.

CLK LM Strassenversion "The Endgame". CLK LM Chassis #002 is the only one of its kind. In 1998, Mercedes-Benz decided to make an official comeback (as chassis and engine constructor) at the Le Mans 24 Hour Race. The engineers at AMG were convinced that only a much more compact engine, which would allow upgraded aerodynamics would achieve this goal. AMG made the strategic move to reintroduce the “M119” V8 engine with 5.0L tested eight years earlier on the Sauber Mercedes C11 Group C (however flange mounted from a 730HP to a 600HP to meet regulation requirements of the GT1 category). A brand new chassis and a completely reworked aerodynamic body housed the mythical V8 engine: the CLK LM was born. Likewise with the CLK GTR in 1997, on top of the four CLK LM “racing” chassis, Mercedes-AMG undertook towards the FIA to build 25 “street versions” of the CLK LM under the express obligation to present at least one finished model before its first race to take place on June 5th, 1998 at the Le Mans 24 Hour Race. The factory immediately produced two “street version” – “Strassenversion” in German of the CLK LM: chassis #001 which will live out its destiny as a crash test version for German certification needs and chassis #002. Chassis #002 was presented for the first time to the world’s media at the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours. Thanks to chassis #002, Mercedes-AMG was entitled to register in 1998 for the FIA GT World Championship in the GT1 category. There is no other car in the world, cleared to drive on public roads, that is more radical than the CLK LM Strassenversion.
