This Touring Racer Looks Like a Real Killer
Lynk & Co teamed up with Cyan Racing, which is the racing arm of Geely Group Motorsport and formerly Polestar Racing, to build the car you see in the pictures here. It’s the 03 Cyan Concept and it’s the street version of the race car the company showed off in October 2018.
The car’s styling is unique and it offers a usable but compact four-door cabin. It’s shown in a blue that’s reminiscent of the blue from Polestar. “This is a natural step for us together with Lynk & Co. To build a road version of a race car is a great way to learn more about a car and its characteristics,” said Christian Dahl, founder and owner of Cyan Racing, in a press release.
The car features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that manages to put out 528 hp and 371 lb-ft of torque. Those are impressive numbers. The engine gets a six-speed sequential gearbox, sending the power to the front wheels. Lynk & Co claims a 0 to 62 mph time of just 4.4 seconds and a 0 to 124 mph time of 10 seconds flat. The car has a 192 mph top speed.
The engine appears to be a rev-happy beast. Lynk & Co claims it can rev to 8,000 rpm. The sequential gearbox can fire off shifts in just 60 ms. The car is supposed to be able to pull 1.5 Gs in the corners. Stopping the machine are six-piston calipers and 380 mm rotors up front and two-piston calipers and 278 mm rotors in the rear. It rides on 20-inch Cyan wheels.
