The idea is to generate attention and energy around a car's design which they wouldn't be able to do based on the production car alone. Lincoln has been successful with this formula so far and expect it to continue.
The most recent Lincoln sedan to go that route was the Zephyr, that didn't end well. Lincoln needs a damned home run, not a bunch more doubles.
