For those in the automotive world, Germany’s Nurburgring is perhaps the ultimate high-speed proving ground. So when a vehicle breaks a record there, it’s a noteworthy occasion. Well, Cyan Racing’s Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept sedan just broke two.

Completing the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes and just over 20 seconds, this speedy super-sedan has just become the fastest four-door to complete the circuit ever — cutting the previous record by three seconds. That also means it’s the quickest front-wheel-drive vehicle in the world, breaking Jaguar’s record by a whopping 25 seconds. It managed that courtesy of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of a more-than-impressive 528 horsepower and 372 foot-pounds of torque. Even more interestingly, this also marks the first time a Chinese manufacturer has claimed a record on the German track with a mass-production vehicle. Yes, you read that right: they’re building more of them for the public. We’ll have to wait to find out more, however, so sit tight.
