HKS CT230R

NZ Performance Car - - Back Issue Review -

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.
