HKS

HKS is a tuner well known for its package for Hyundai Genesis Coupe or Nissan GT-R . But on their latest work they turned the attention to a hybrid model, the Honda CR-Z to be more precisely.

For the CR-Z, the tuner is offering modifications for the exhaust system and the suspension as well as styling upgrades. The Hypermax III coilovers are usually used on high-performance racing machines, but in combination with Advan Racing forged wheels they make from the CR-Z a car suited for any driving situation.

We do not known if they will also offer engine upgrades, but we can hope, no?

One particular highlight of the 2009 Miami Auto show was the HKS Hyundai Genesis Coupe that was built specially for the 2008 SEMA show. Now while Hyundai is stepping up their game for this year’s show with a mid mounted Tau V8 powered Genesis Coupe being prepared by none other than Rhys Millen himself, and while the new car is supposed to be a bit of a sleeper, the HKS creation is anything but such a thing.

The Tskuba Red coupe wears a Kenstyle bodykit that gives the Korean car an aggressive blend of Japanese style without going over the top in the traditional ricer fashion. Devoid of big wings and way too much camber; like most high end creations it is the details that you don’t see that makes the HKS creation so nice. For instance the hood mounted front spoiler goes almost unnoticed, just like the ghosted in graphic that identifies this car as an HKS creation. The grille opening has been enlarged and the front bumper opens up wider, framing the Mobis front mount intercooler nicely and making the new Coupe seem much more stable. Out back the oversized quartet of tailpipes look like it could have been lifted straight off of a Nissan GT-R, while the new rear end compliments the front end nicely, making the Genesis Coupe look much more planted on the ground.

The HKS Genesis Coupe rides on a set of 19 inch Volk Racing rims, some of the finest aftermarket wheels available anywhere. Housed inside of the upgraded rolling stock are a set of multi piston Brembo brake calipers that are ready to bring the Coupe to a hasty halt. That is because thanks to every part from the HKS catalog that ranges from the HKS GT Turbo upgrade to HKS Hipermax III fully adjustable coil over suspension is made to make this tuned Hyundai Genesis Coupe go as good as it looks.

The Nissan GT-R (a.k.a. Godzilla) seems to become a real icon in the world of tuning. After Amuse and Zele , another big Japanese tuner, HKS, is focusing on the fastest Nissan around. The tuning house unveiled today the HKS GT570 upgrade kit that updates the GT-R to an astonishing 570 hp and 540 lb.-ft. of torque. In order to obtain this amount of power, HKS added a new aluminum intercooler piping, reduced the exhaust resistance and increased the boost with the help of an electronic boosting controller. Unfortunately the the package is not yet available in the U.S., but until then enjoy the exhaust note of the tuner car on the dyno.
