The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is currently the official Nürburgring production car lap record holder but British tuner, Litchfield thinks they can change that.
Dubbed the LM1 RS GT-R, the Nissan GT-R-based challenger has been designed as the ultimate track-focused GT-R, capable of lapping the circuit in less than 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds – according to Litchfield.
To do that, the tuner has installed a pair of BorgWarner turbochargers from an IndyCar racer, bespoke cams and heads, a customized intercooler and Inconel manifolds to boost power from the hand-built 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 from 419kW/632Nm to a mighty 820Nm/1,085Nm.
To improve handling, the LM1 RS GT-R’s has also been fitted with a set of Öhlins suspension and all-new lightweight carbon fibre body panels, along with a flat floor and aero components from the NISMO GT-R GT3 racer to produce additional downforce.
The NISMO GT-R is currently the fastest road-legal Nissan GT-R to lap the Nürburgring, taking 7 minutes and 8 seconds.
