I need the right information about the engine in the Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM
In the game it says that it is a v10, but on the internet there is no CLK-LM with a V10
It's or a CLK-GTR wit a V12 engine (AMG / Mercedes-Benz GT 112 60º V12 (http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/4281/Mercedes-Benz-CLK-GTR.html)) or a CLK-LM with a V8 engine (Mercedes-AMG GT 108 B 90º V8 (http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/spec/1082/Mercedes-Benz-CLK-LM.html))
It's says that MB went from the M120 V12 to the M119 V8 in the CLK-LM "First and foremost, Mercedes-AMG decided that the M120 V12 would not be up to the task of running for 24 hours. It was decided instead that Mercedes would actually return to an engine they had used in (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_CLK_GTR#CLK_LM)Group C (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_C) in the late 1980s, the (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_CLK_GTR#CLK_LM)M119 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_M119_engine) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_CLK_GTR#CLK_LM)V8 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V8_engine). Abandoning the (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_CLK_GTR#CLK_LM)turbochargers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbocharger) that the M119 had used in Group C and enlarging the displacement, Mercedes-AMG felt that the M119 would have better reliability at speeds while still performing the same amount of power as the M120 due to air restrictor regulations." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_CLK_GTR#CLK_LM)
What is true?the V10 like it's said in the game? (the only `MB V10 i can find is in the F! cars, or are V10 diesels (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mercedes-Benz_engines#V10))or is it yet again a typo and should i be a CLK-LM V8?
Hope someone knows the answer

Thanx in advance

So yeah, the text is wrong, it's really a V8, not a V10.

Mercedes (AMG) made this car 1997 and 1998.
At first it was named CLK GTR and it was built for the GT1 class.
It had a 60° V12 engine (5987 cm³) and about 600 hp around 7000 r/min and 700 Nm at 3900 r/min.
Dry weight 1000 kilos

The following year Mercedes wanted to take part in the 24h/LeMans with the car (LM stands for LeMans),
because of it´s success in the GT1 class the year before.
But for that they felt it needed some changes, due to the challenge in such a race.
They decided to change the V12 to a V8 because they felt that te V12 would´t be up for such a task (running for 24 hours).
They also went on altering some of the bodywork, the nose and roof was lowered etc..
The 90° V8 figures is 4986 cm³ and around 600hp.
Dry weight 940 kilos

However the car never finished LeMans due to engin failure (but it was fast it took pole).

Mercedes/AMG also made a road going version of the car named CLK GTR (limited to 26 cars).
Those were made between 1998 and 1999 and had a 60° V12 engine as the first race car.
But 6898 cm³, 612 hp at 6500 r/min and 731 Nm at 5250 r/min.
Weight 1440 kilos.

They also made a roadster version.
Of the 26 cars ever produced 20 were coupes and 6 roadsters.
Mercedes-AMG claimed 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 344 km/h (214 mph).
it had a price tag of $1,547,620(USD)!!:

The CLK GTR raced 22 times, took 17 wins, 17 poles and 14 fastest laps.
RESPECT.

the CLK GTR has a V12. the CLK LM has the same engine than the Sauber C9 but revs higher and has less power. the le mans version of the LM has the same sound from the C9(but higher pitched) and the FIA GT version has a very high pitched noise(like a V8 supercar) wich is really wierd since it's the same engine

FIA GT version had a different V8 from the Le Mans Spec V8. Hence the different sound.

Yeah, a flat crank and one liter less displacement can do wonders to the sound.
