    Hello Gents,
    Since I'm a proud owner of a LM I can tell you an easy way to tell if it's real LM.
    Just check the bar going from 1 schock tower to the other and the bar should flat across and above the waste gate. If it has a hump, well, you know that this is just a F40 with some body mods.
    The pics in Germany is a LM done after the 13 originals were done
    by Micholletto. The number 19 (that I had the pleasure to drive) had cantilever rear suspention and is FL.
    Fell free to check back with me for more info.
    happy new Year

    Thanks for the info, but this is still WAY above my knowledge, what can I say, I'm just an old racer (53) who has no desire to learn more on PC. I'll
    ask my brother to take of that tomorrow and in the meantime, I'll kick some some pics by e'mail (I learned that at least)
    Take care,
    Roland

    i can say, from first-hand experience, that riding in an F40 LM (Roland's) is quite the thrill... Roland was kind enough to take me for a ride around the track at the Grand Bayou Raceway in New Orleans... :)

    Roland, you appear to be way over 6' tall. How do you fit in there?

    i'm not sure how he fits in there; the seat must be custom... i'm 5'11" and, with a helmet, my head was touching the roof of the car... When we finished the ride, i needed to be shoe-horned out the seat, too... i don't know how he does it...

    Watching Roland drive was a privilege, in itself... i'm sitting in this tight seat in an F40 LM that's ROCKETING around the track and he's casually sitting in the driver's seat, like he's on his way to the grocery store... Meanwhile, we're flyyyyying around the track...! It was truly a memorable experience...

    The car in the forefront of the above-picture is a regular F40... The one behind it, of course, is Roland's LM... :)

    DES, I've been in the club for years, seen many F40's up close and personal, but have never been for a ride in one, I am so jealous of you! There has never been an F40 at a track day I've been to. The F40 is still illegal in Canada until next year. Maybe then I can scam a ride in one, or I'll have to come down to the US for a ride. Maybe you can hook me up? LOL

    It's truly an awesome car; as Chris Parr once said, "LM" must stand for Linder-Made... :)

    Here's a picture of a blurry Roland... Must be all that super fast driving... :)
