Lynk & Co Starts Taking Customer Orders For The 03 TCR Racer



Launched a couple of years ago as a premium car brand co-owned by Volvo and Geely, Lynk & Co has now started taking orders of the 03 TCR from privateers.

The touring car racer is available in its home market, China, where customers will take deliveries in the first quarter of next year, reports AutoNews, quoting information released by the Geely Group last week.

No pricing details have been announced yet for the 03 TCR, whose development began in mid-2018 and made its official racing debut at the 2019 FIA World Touring Car Cup, hosted in Marrakech, Morocco, in April.
