HKS President (Hiroyuki Hasegawa) has said, ‘Motor sports activities are the origin of HKS “challenging sprit”. HKS will keep challenging with high aspiration and we will share our dream and sensation with our fans…

We have chosen TOYOTA 86 as a base car. Taking part in the top tuning category of “D1”with the latest high-profile FR car enables us to feedback the technology obtained throughthis competition for our new product development.
