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


    Once a clay prototype is underway, it’s time to take the next digitizing design step...

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

    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!

    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
