Cyan Racing – or, Polestar as you probably knew it – has just broke two record at Nurburgring. Their latest Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept just became the fastest four-door car and the fastest front-wheel driven car in the world around the fearsome 21-kilometre Nordschleife circuit.
With Thed Björk, the 2017 World Champion of touring car racing, behind the wheel the Cyan Concept lapped the famous circuit in 7 minutes and 20,143 seconds, averaging 170,4 km/h. This time makes it three seconds faster that the Jaguar – who previously held the record, and 25 seconds faster than the Renault who held the record for front-wheel driven cars.
The 7:20.143 lap record was set using the full 20,832km circuit layout as per the official Nürburgring standard and not the shorter 20,600km version as often used by other manufacturers. The Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept lapped the shorter version of the circuit in 7:15.123.
