So, thought it was about time I shared this with you all, picked it up around 6 weeks ago but due work and other commitments not really had much chance to use it or make this post! What can I say, been a long time coming and the spec might have changed once or twice but here she is, the last ever (number 18) LM20 to roll out and the only one to have a engine build and gearbox build too. Using the full Litchfield turbo manifold kit (6758***8217;s) it***8217;s currently at 938bhp at only 1.7bar, but once more mileage covered it***8217;s then going back for more tweaks so should hopefully see a little more. What a fantastic job Iain and his team have done, I may have only covered 385 miles in it but what a animal it is, drives, stops and handles amazinging and with the full PPS it***8217;s protected from all the usual stone chips etc nobody wants. So pleased I took the plunge and did it and well worth the wait, Here***8217;s some pics........ 93AEA7D0-418C-4FFD-9F93-BDBE3D007B9B_1537889218912.jpeg 616B35ED-DE5F-4E46-BB11-5C457312386E_1537889164741.jpeg B55C02E1-2EAF-452F-B1E9-A42B616C5A3A_1537888960023.jpeg D463D3D9-B6F3-44A5-AE96-BBAB97DB3BE1_1537889009819.jpeg 1C3F3836-C04B-4F82-8AA2-A64CAED2FF06_1537889103548.png

Congratulations to you, enjoy ownership of a special car and to the Litchfield team who have come such a long way in very few years.

I first visited Litchfield in 2009 when they were some 6 staff and one workshop. It just shows what savy buisness sense, skill and shear hard work can achieve. Well done Ian, Jenny and the team.

668lbft torque... 938bhp... How come the torque isn't higher? just curious.... was thinking it would be like 750lbft++...

also i didn't realize the 6758s could do that much bhp, thats really awesome!! so if they are at 1.7 bar, what can they be cranked up to? can they push 1000bhp? i thought 7 series turbos where needed for that...

Very nice.

Interesting to see how the paint protection works over time if you can update us.
Fair old trip to Litchfield from me, so I'm thinking of PPF instead for now.
