I've worked on this car and it's a tidy car, the lm20 is a nice car if your going to use it for what it was mainly designed around which is track use. I owned number 20 in the same colour i personally preferred the stock car purely because of the ride quality and i missed the my previous Katsura Orange 17car. The Lm20 handles exceptionally well at high speed and in cornering but on daily use its a bit harsher and sits lower so speed bumps and drive ways can be a bit challenging. We did some security bits and dashcam installation on the car. The lady who owned the car at the time only had it for a few weeks and then decided to trade it in for a Mercedes amg gtr. Unfortunately alot of the Lm20`s have a few owners because personally i think it was overrated and didn't do as well as they thought it would. Im thinking of selling mine if your interested. 07973733441

I think it’s not that well kept. I enquired about this vehicle and the service history is out of line of what I’d expect even though the dealer didn’t seem to think so!

Convo as of March 2020

Lots of GTRs have a high number of owners, same with many high performance cars as people buy them and only keep them for a short period of time before moving them on When they realise the cost of of ownership.

almost 4 years
Litchfield first owner 1
Then 4 owners after him
so 5 in total
Next person will be 6th
If you keep the car 1 year it’ll have 6 owners in 4 years and if you keep in 10 years it’ll have 6 owners in 13 years. It’s all relative.
What put me off is the servicing intervals seemed to have been missed between all this changing ownerships. I’d rather have a well maintained vehicle which is usually correlated with caring owners which is correlated with them keeping it a while generally meaning they have a low number of owners.

I personally love the lm 20’s I think it’s a good alround car, often ive thought about buying one but the timing never seems the best.

The advertised one seems a little expensive, maybe some negotiating can be made to reduce the price.

Anyway good luck and keep us posted to how you get on.

Agree with the statement about performance cars and short ownership periods not being alarming by itself. I keep my "toys" 1 year tops. Why? I grow tired of them and want something else :)
My dailies I keep for a few years since they are for transportation not so much for joy.

Interesting that it has been upgraded to 760 bhp in June 2020 so assume done by Litchfields. OP I would call Litchfields as they saw the car only last month and get their appraisal of the car, and their view of the servicing of this car.

It's a limited edition model so finding other options available for sale would be more difficult than a regular car.........BUT.......if this was a regular model car 4 years old with missed services and high number of owners being advertised for "all the money" I don't believe people would be so forgiving :unsure:
