Hankook Tire Title Sponsoring a FC Rx-7 in 2012 [SPYSHOTS]

Posted on May 23, 2012 In International Pro Drift Rumors/Gossip Spy Shots

It looks like Hankook is on fire this week after a 2JZ Toyota 86 announcement last night and now they are taking the reigns of a new title sponsorship with a FC Rx-7. The car looks to be overseas (note a MCNSPORT) sticker on the door but not sure if the car is coming to the United States for competition or going somewhere overseas? This was slipped to us in an e-mail we cannot wait to see what is brewing over this sponsorship project.
