It’s quite an interesting creation in that it has reached these accolades without much use of aero – something that over the last few years has completely taken over the time attack scene at both a pro and amateur level.

But that’s besides the point. HKS is a company that specialises in making engine and tuning parts, and therefore its demo cars must first and foremost show what these components are capable of. Downforce doesn’t enter the equation – it’s all about raw power, and when it comes to this R35 – quite a lot of it. (more…)
