HKS will soon introduce a brand new Time Attack Evo X in its quest to break the 1 minute barrier at the Tsukuba Circuit in Japan. Not even a Lambo Superleggera has done this yet.
One of the legacies continuously being created by tuning house HKS is the number of track records it has achieved with the HKS CT230R Circuit Time Attack Evo. The Evo is always a good base car to start from if one is looking for a razor-sharp handler to take on a race track.
A new car dubbed the HKS Lancer Evolution X, CZ200S is now being developed for the same time attack purposes. As with its predecessors most of the parts used for the CZ200S's are either sold off-the-shelf or available to customers as prototype HKS products.
The Yokohama Tyre Company will be expected to provide top rubber shoes for the CZ200S as it goes for a lap time of under one minute at the Tsukuba Circuit, Japan. Consider though that cars like the Nissan Nismo R34 Z-Tune, the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a stock Nissan GT-R are yet to break the one minute barrier on that circuit.
Initial testing using new Advan Neova AD08 radial tyres yielded a best lap time of 59.495 at Tsukuba.
