Got to spend some more time around Lincoln today (went early this morning before opening; despite wearing a presenters badge there was no way to get in before the crowds and take a peek at the Continental, alas...), and I once again state that Lincoln knows what they're doing in China. They had one of the most elaborate stands, matched only by the DS display in class and style. What was brilliant about eh Lincoln display was that much of it matches their Chinese dealerships, so people who discovered them at the show will feel right at home when they visit the dealerships now. Navigator looks great in black, it's going to be a hit, no question.
As for the Continental, I found it larger than I expected, nice and long, low and wide. It doesn't look like any Bentley model, it simply doesn't. I'd say those drawings need to be frozen and that thing put in production (only thing I'd do is put on some smaller, more attractive rims).
Didn't have as much time at Ford's stand as I would have liked, but the GT is awesome! The details around the taillights (the look like air outlets, not sure what they vent!) are really cool. ST and RT Focus models are really sharp too. Taurus is really quite a sedate design, but very handsome. I think that Ford knows what the Chinese want in a big sedan. The new Explorer is also very nicely updated.
Hadn't read your question beforehand, AM222, sorry didn't pay special attention to the Focus, sorry!
Will try to add some pictures as soon as internet wants to cooperate.
