LM20

Just wondered how many forum users have an lm 20 and are they std or modified beyond Litchfields original spec ?

I am aware CT17 had No.17, I believe it was factory done by Litchos so not sure if that constitutes as 'modified' if that makes sense..??? It was kinda modded compared to the Normal LM20, I do recall it having Alcon CCX (I think), not sure on engine though.

Also I think their is another member who has a LM20 which is 900bhp or thereabouts, but I same again as above it was like that from Litcho's.

Also Takamo has No.20 think thats untouched but he could tell more.

Yes, the above was exactly what I had in mind.

Chris has the highly tuned one so maybe he could add to the list

I have number 20 of the 20 and its DMG (grey) not silver, only extras that were fitted on order was Litchfields blow off valves and forge black header tank other than that standard LM20. We have worked on a stage 5 Lm20 in Ireland and Litchfields currently have another stage 5 one for sale personally I think they should be kept as standard as possible for future value. Oh number 17 was owned by CT17 now its David Bensons on here, I was meant to buy that car but wasn't meant to be and was destined for him... Good luck to him

Seeing as the LM20 is a modified Litchfield car, further Litchfield mods shouldn't really affect the value? It would be like optional Nissan extras.

I understand where you are coming from but a completely original limited edition car fetches more money than modified one from what I've seen. I could be wrong but I'm talking about in the future.

It brings you onto what makes a "limted edition" car.

The LM20 is an awesome bit of kit but long term modded or not, is it a true limited edition in terms of future values as rare?
It's a standard car that is aftermarket modded to a set spec, which constitutes the limited edition status.

I personally can't see them retaining a huge amount more value over a standard car modded to a similar spec because they are not a manufacturer limited edition car. And therefore extra Litchfield mods wouldn't bother me at all.

For me, when I got mine, it was a new GT-R with mods that had a similar warranty to Nissan including the extra bits. That was the main attraction.
At 3 years old next year they will have an equal warranty to every other modded GT-R out there. None or one you pay extra for.

No 17 is also the only LM20 based on a Track Edition GT-R, with the wider front track, carbon boot and spoiler and the Nismo more rigid body bonding.
In addition to the Alcon CCX carbon brake kit.

Hi all,

Late to the party. I own no17. It as described stock LM20 with carbon brakes. Keeping it that way not for value but because improving my driving will be the biggest upgrade.

Would have loved to own that car myself but have a impending house purchase on the go, so it ruled me out.
