Digital Clay Modeling: Those Amazing Machines - Now.Lincoln.com
Article by Shawn Sims, Automotive Editor, NOTCOT

...Inside the Lincoln Design Studio is a massive five-axis CNC (Computer Numeral Control) milling machine that turns digital files into full-scale sculptures...

Lots MORE...

do you mean waaaaaaaaaaaay in the back, N.R.?

at first I thought it was that one we saw that looked sorta up-in-the-air with a very upright windshield
but this looks smaller
so
thought it might be an MKC
but
the MKC is 63.2" tall & I think judging from peep's shoulders that this is under 60"...


...starting to think they rotate various LR/RR's just to drive you & me crazy(er)

It looks like some sort of hatchback like the C Concept, but that project was nixed? I actually would buy that car if and only if it had that cool show car interior and the suicide doors!

It might be a MINI Cooper!

Re: Digital Clay Modeling - Now.Lincoln.com

my textfile dimensions database doesn't have heights for the Mini
but the (previous) Focus Estate was 59" tall...

So, do you think that project might have been revived?

Look at the guy standing next to it. There's no way that's the MKC.

dunno - hope the "Abomination" (no offense) has been burned & buried

think it really could be a competitor's benchmark vehicle

if it IS a clay...can't imagine any Lincoln it could be...tho imho it could be an early test for a 2020 Mercury - like one based on the Escape/MKC platform & testing possible differentiation (the hardest one to do in my coming manifesto's lineup)
_clicky
but that's just me
