The Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept Pushes 528 HP to the Front Wheels



https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-car...pecs-price-hp/


Cyan Racing, the Volvo performance division formerly known as Polestar, has been busy. It built a Lynk & Co. touring car to race in WTCR this year, and now, it's just released a new concept car for the street: The 03 Cyan concept. It's a road-going version of the touring car, with 528 horsepower going to the front wheels. We're interested.

That power comes from a heavily upgraded version of Volvo's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which gets to the ground via a six-speed sequential gearbox and a multi-plate clutch limited-slip differential. Torque is rated at 372 lb.-ft., which we assume is a whole lot to handle for the front wheels, even with a limited-slip.

The car also gets a wide-body kit, some massively wide 285mm section-width tires riding on 20 inch wheels, Íhlins adjustable dampers, and a bunch of aerodynamic elements to complement all that thrust. There's also six-piston calipers with 378 mm brake discs up front, and two-piston calipers with 290 mm discs out back. Curb weight comes in at 2837 pounds.

Cyan Racing says 0-62 mph comes in at 4.4 seconds, while 0-125 mph is completed in 10 seconds. The car has a top speed of 192.6 mph, and can go from 62 mph to a stop in just 98 feet. It can also pull a max lateral g-force of 1.5G, which is damn impressive.

Hopefully this thing is more than just a show piece for the Geneva Motor Show, because we'd love to drive it.

The Optima Charger Juke, brought to you by a corporation that sounds like a steam shovel company from the late 1800's, in wrong wheel drive.

That being said, it's probably a hoot to drive if its this competent that it can compete in touring car racing.

From the vent on the front fender to the rear door, I see STi. That car is a hodgepodge of a hot mess.

The performance numbers seem low for something supposedly that light with that much power. Probably doesn’t help that it’s FWD, but still...

That is one weird looking Dodge Charger.
Nice color though.
