The Lynks effect

The Nürburgring four door and front-wheel drive lap record has been smashed – by a car you’ve probably never heard of…

Сyan Racing, formerly named Polestar, has broken two Nürburgring lap records during development of the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept, making it the fastest four-door car and the fastest front-wheel driven car in the world around the fearsome 21-kilometre Nordschleife circuit. The 528bhp Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in seven minutes and 20.143-seconds, with touring car World Champion Thed Björk behind the wheel. The lap time is three seconds faster than the record for four-door cars, formerly held by Jaguar, and 25 seconds faster than the record for front-wheel driven cars, formerly held by Renault.

The race engineers and drivers of Cyan Racing, the official motorsport partner to Geely Group Motorsport, have developed the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept as a road car version of the race car run by the team in the World Touring Car Cup.

Development of the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept will continue throughout the last part of the year, with the team turning attention to winter testing in the north of Sweden as part of creating a performance car for all roads, all seasons and all conditions. Perfect for the UK then? We think so…
