Welp, that didn’t take long. With the announcement of Toyota’s and Subaru’s second-generation GR 86 and BRZ, it was all but guaranteed the little sports cars would get a number of aftermarket go-fast goods and aesthetic upgrades. And HKS Japan isn’t wasting any time leaving its mark on the model. Last weekend, during the annual “Fuji 86 Style with BRZ” event at Japan’s Fuji Speedway, the high-performance aftermarket tuning company debuted its GR 86 concept.
HKS (named after its founders, Hasegawa, Kitagawa, and Sigma), was established in Japan in 1973. With a focus on performance parts that included forward-thinking aftermarket turbocharged applications (one of the very first), bolt-on solutions, and later aero options, the brand has long served as a leader in the space. In recent years it’s often been first to market with upgrades for newly released vehicles. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
