That's a Bentley. I think they borrowed enough from them for one car!

Re: Lincoln Continental Concept

It looks like these Continental prototypes bring back the "Insta-Clear" windshield. I know they are pretty common among other luxury makers but Ford/Lincoln hasn't had one since the 80's.

The Transit Connect has the Quick Clear windshield.

It looks taller too, not as low slung as the concept.

It's also got more sheetmetal above the wheelarches compared to the Concept below.


From the looks of it, it's the Continental Concept's styling adjusted to fit the hard points of the new 2016 (Chinese) Taurus.

Re: Lincoln Continental Concept

David Woodhouse was on autoline detroit yesterday where he talked about the Continental concept, he didn't reveal anything about future products but still informative.

Re: Lincoln Continental Concept

WHADDYA mean he didn't reveal anything???
btw added video to you post


right at the start he says the StarShadow grille is going on the whole lineup!!!

~24:00 he says Lincoln's model nomenclature will 'probably' be a mix of Names and not-names

~31:00 Woodhouse escapes McElroy's poorly-set "hook" about the LincStang
( *I* thinks he practically confirmed the MKE-side of the S550 )


finished the whole video...
I'll be most interested in hearing Jose's opinion of Mr.W!!

Thanks for sharing! It was great to see John Manoogian on this one!

It's nice to know Woodhouse believes Lincoln should be Lincoln in order to be successful in the marketplace. I'm still skeptical about his design abilities, though. He did say this new design language will evolve into a more distinctive and "Lincolnish" DNA. I liked how John McElroy and David discussed the similarities of this car's design philosophy to the famous Continentals the Fords were involved in. I'll give him and his designs a chance.
