The HKS Toyota 86-based GTS800

An 86 built to recapture time

Resetting the Tsukuba circuit lap record you set a decade ago and then lost to something a whole lot quicker isn’t easy. It also isn’t cheap. But that’s exactly what HKS intends to do with its remarkably overhauled Toyota 86 that was built to usurp not just the company’s previous CT230R race car but the current Tsukuba record-holder, Under Suzuki and his Nissan S15 Silvia.

Here, HKS has implemented all sorts of sophisticated dry-carbon-fiber-laid aero trickery the time attack world’s yet been privy to. A unique front splitter with its own wings is positioned up front and flanked by a massive rear wing perched above a trunk spoiler that presumably all work together for some serious downforce.

Look closely and you’ll find six-piston carbon brakes and the original FA20 boxer engine that, if the car’s name indicates anything at all, will be good for roughly 800 hp by way of more displacement and an HKS supercharger.

Oh, and then there’s the four blow-off valves underneath that one-off, Dzus clipped-on carbon hood, which at this point is anyone’s guess what that’s all about.
