What you see is a virtual comparison between the 1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK LM and the 2014 Maserati MC12 Corsa Centenario, both filmed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​(FOS). I don't want to focus on the performance but only to show the beauty of two extraordinary cars, both derived from the respective GT1 models that raced in the late 90s and early 2000s. The Mercedes-Benz CLK LM to take part in the 24h of Le Mans was modified compared to the previous GTR. First of all the engine, M120 V12 was replaced with the M119 HL V8 naturally aspirated derived from Sauber C9/C11. The turbochargers have been removed and the engine thus created has been called GT108 B. The bodywork has also been modified to deal with the high speeds that can be reached at Le Mans without. The muzzle has been lowered, and there's a single large opening for cooling air in the front. The roof of the car has also been lowered and has a direct air intake to the engine to improve cooling. We also find several mechanical changes. Thus was born the CLK LM. The Maserati MC12 GT1 for racing, made in only 15 units, derives from the road version produced in 50 cars to have the homologation necessary to race in the GT1 championship. These vehicles became multi-victorious in the 2005 and 2006 seasons. The "Centenary" Corsa version you see is based on the FXX project and is powered by a V12 N/A engine that develops 564 kW (756 HP) at 8000 rpm, 92 kilowatts (125 HP) higher than the road variant. The weight stops at just 1,150 kg, thanks to the carbon cell. The braking system is carbon ceramic without ABS. Enjoy the video!
