Cyan Racing develops road version of Lynk & Co WTCR challenger
This is Cyan Racing’s take on a touring car for the road. The Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept is based on the Lynk & Co 03 TCR, which will power Thed Björk, Yann Ehrlacher, Yvan Muller and Andy Priaulx in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO in 2019.
Developed by race engineers and drivers from Cyan Racing, the official motorsport partner to Geely Group Motorsport, it is the latest performance road car concept from Cyan Racing, formerly named Polestar, following the Volvo C30 Concept and Volvo S60 Concept.
“This is a natural step for us together with Lynk & Co,” said Christian Dahl, founder and owner of Cyan Racing. “To build a road version of a race car is a great way to learn more about a car and its characteristics. This is a performance concept but it might also be a first step towards a performance offer for Lynk & Co customers [to whom] we bring what we learn on the track to the road.”
The Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept road car has been developed by largely the same team behind the 450hp C30 Concept and the 508hp S60 Concept.
“Our engineering philosophy has always been to build cars for all conditions,” said Henrik Fries, Head of Automotive R&D at Cyan Racing. “A championship-winning race car must never surprise its driver. It stays balanced no matter the circuit or weather. Building the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept road car is no exception. We strive to make it perform on all roads, all seasons and in all conditions.”
Development of the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept is currently underway in Spain, where Cyan’s preparations for WTCR / OSCARO season two are ongoing.
