VIDEO: Litchfield Nissan GT-R LM20
The Litchfield LM20, a modified version of the 2017 Nissan GT-R Black Edition delivers 666 hp and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.5sec.
Described as the “ultimate road going GT-R,” the LM20 combines everyday usability with hypercar performance. Under the hood, the 3.8-liter V6 has been heavily modified, gaining a Litchfield intercooler and boost hoses, cast turbo downpipes and a 102mm exhaust with a less restrictive sports catalytic converter. There’s also larger fuel injectors, higher flow fuel pumps and a freer breathing air intake. These performance upgrades were accomplished with recalibrated ECU that also helped improve efficiency. Thanks to all these enhancements, the twin-turbo V6 now delivers 666 hp between 2500 and 5100rpm and 615 lb-ft torque available from just 2100rpm. Its performance is as mind-blowing as you’d expect, needing just 2.5 seconds to go from rest to 60mph in 2.5 seconds and 0-100mph in 5.7 seconds. Top speed is 203 mph.
The LM20 also boasts Bilstein Damptronic suspension with custom Eibach springs and anti-roll bars and bespoke traction control and electronic stability control software. Stopping comes from a set of larger, 400mm Alcon front and 380mm rear discs. The revised grille, new carbon-fiber bodyparts and lightweight Rays Track Edition wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires rounds up the modifications.
Only 20 LM20s will be made and each will be priced from £96,995. Litchfield is also offering a 3-year warranty (that includes official track days with the GTR Owner’s Club) and breakdown cover.
