This is the tuner’s latest take on the Japanese performance machine, with the LM20 startign out as a 2017 Nissan GT-R Black Edition and coming out with 666 bhp and 600 lb ft (814 Nm) of torque.
Present at the Autosport International event in Birmingham, UK, the upgraded coupe packs a massaged 3.8-litre V6 with 74bhp and 119lb ft more than the standard model’s flagship version – the GT-R Nismo. Litchfield considers the LM20 capable of sprinting to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and thinks it will top out at more than 200 mph (320 km/h). Handling the extra grunt is no easy task, so the LM20 features unique traction control and electronic stability control software, a Bilstein Damptronic suspension with bespoke Eibach springs and anti-roll bars and also has 400mm Alcon discs front and rear tucked behind lightweight Rays Track Edition wheels.
Getting itself apart from the GT-R stable the LM20 makes use of new carbon fiber body parts and also a revised radiator grille. Gloucestershire-based Litchfield has timed the release of the LM20 to also celebrate two decades of existence and considers the new GT-R its most potent to date, but still capable of handling daily road use. Keeping with the celebratory numbers, the production series will span just 20 units ad each will cost at least £96,995, which is about 16k more than a standard production series GT-R.
