Cyan Racing claims to have broken two world records for front-wheel drive and four-door cars at the Nurburgring with the Lynk&Co 03. It beats the four-door Jaguar XE SV Project 8 by three seconds and the FWD Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy-R by a staggering 25 seconds. We suspect it wasn't keeping tabs on Cyan Racing. Behind the wheel of the 528-horsepower sedan was WCTR Lynk & Co Cyan Racing driver Thed Björk who lapped the full 12.9-mile layout of the Nordschleife ("North Loop") in 7 minutes and 20.1 seconds while averaging 105.8 miles per hour. The Chinese-Swedish brand has been testing a new production sedan at the Green Hell and managed to set a time of 7 minutes and 20,143 seconds. In the press release, Cyan Racing wishes to point out other automakers often use the slightly shorter 12.8-mile configuration of the track, therefore the concept's lap time is even more impressive.
The Lynk & Co 03 has already gone on sale in China.
Unlike the Jag and front-wheel drive hot hatch, which are production cars, the Lynk&Co 03 is now in concept form, so the records can be contested.
Black Panther 2 gets long-awaited release date

Indianapolis Colts star Andrew Luck retires aged 29 in all-time National Football League shocker
It was during the 2017 season while out that Luck questioned whether he would be able to continue his career. After that victory, Luck missed the next two weeks as he recovered from the injury.
Troy Deeney to miss several games after minor operation on his knee
West Ham have looked slow, laboured and well off the pace during pre-season and their two Premier League games. We could possibly see Femenía replaced with Daryl Janmaat in the Watford lineup against West Ham United .
First "hundred" auto is gaining in 4.4 seconds and 200 kilometers per hour, it reaches 10 seconds. Is it the fastest road-legal four-door and FWD race-prepped auto to ever lap the 'Ring?
So while we're hugely impressed they've channelled 528bhp through only the front axle of a vehicle - and made it work very almost as well as a near-600bhp all-wheel-drive Jag around the 'Ring - the 03 is essentially a touring auto with number plates, and until we can buy something largely identical with actual money, it surely has to sit in another category of records to both the Megane and Project 8.
