Litchfield LM20: PH Videoblog


Tuned Nissan GT-Rs, indeed tuned Nissan Skylines, are nothing new. Since the early 90s various people have tried various methods to release more performance and more fun from the legendary GT-R. You've probably done the same virtually as well.

Litchfield has been practicing its modifying craft for a while now, its experience with the current R35 GT-R stretching back nearly a decade. Yes, that's really how long imported GT-Rs have been in the UK. Its latest creation is the LM20, a car revealed at the Autosport show and driven on these pages very recently.

Now here's the vid! As you may have gathered previously, the LM20 represents the culmination of all Litchfield's tuning experience with these cars and therefore gets a host of trick parts: the Bilstein Damptronic dampers are completely overhauled, there are Alcon brakes, and the car uses Michelin Cup 2 tyres with HRE wheels - don't forget the carbon parts too, which have proven aero benefits.

Even before the power, it sounds like a GT-R that's worth the premium and delivers further on the car's considerable promise. Is it good enough to justify Β£100K? Over to Dan!

    Looks like a hoot!

    Sounds amazing

    Looks like an awesome car and a proper GT-R sound too. The standard car is a bit too muted but the exhaust and breathing mods have really released the noise. Almost sounds like the legendary RB26 now, even though it's missing about 1000rpm.

    Would really love to get back into GT-R ownership but family commitments are preventing it at the moment. frown

    I'm not sure too many people are technically qualified to say that X bhp is the right amount. I'm sure that this is a bloody awesome car to drive though, and I'm not too sure what else can touch it at the price point.

    Latte sipping wkers can stay in the slow lane in their overpriced porkers, while the GTR disappears into the distance. Godzilla, come to decimate all.

    Latte sipping wkers in their overpriced porkers? I'd have a 911 over any 150000 horse power 60 in 1.25 seconds. GTR.

    Should you wish to challenge my reply, I would prefer pistols at dawn. That would settle our differences.
