Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept ‘breaks two Nurburgring lap records’

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.

Cyan Racing (formerly known as Polestar) and Lynk & Co, a Swedish-Chinese auto manufacturer owned by Geely, have just broken not one, but two Nurburgring lap records: Fastest four-door and fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle around the track.

Formerly known as Polestar, Cyan Racing took down the Nürburgring record for a four-door production auto with a Volvo S60 Polestar back in 2016, but made a decision to keep the accomplishment a secret for about a year. We suspect it wasn't keeping tabs on Cyan Racing. The time works out at an average of 170,4 km/h across the entire lap.

So, is the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept the fastest production four-door and FWD auto to ever lap the 'Ring? The Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept lapped the shorter version of the circuit in 7:15.123. However, there's a catch: the 03 is a racing prototype and not a production vehicle.

Powering the Lynk&Co 03 Cyan Concept is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. It does the 0 to 62 mph run in 4.4 seconds and the 0-124 mph sprint in 10 seconds before topping out at 193 mph. That's because it is. In addition, a production version will be sold "in very limited numbers to VIP customers" in the same specification as the concept.

However, as is often the case with such records, there is a huge caveat - in this case, it's the fact that the records were set by a pre-production development auto. "The record we achieved here is something I rank on the same level as my racing titles and a highlight in my part of transitioning development from race to road cars". It's up to you to decide.
