When it landed on our shores, it had already retired from active duty, but that didn’t change the fact that the HKS Evo was, and still is, considered a god among the time-attack ranks. It’s held both the Tsukuba record, at 53.58s, and the Buttonwillow record, at 1min 48.5s, for some time. In terms of today’s top World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC) machines, it barely qualifies as Open class, but what it did with its limited aero puts many of today’s equivalents to shame. We pored over it when it arrived here, and you can, too, in this issue. In 2013, it resurfaced briefly, running a CNG bi-fuel set-up, and was seen testing at Tsukuba Circuit and Fuji Speedway. We’re not sure where the car sits today.
