The great irony of that Bentley 10 Speed 6 concept is that after you strip away some of the Bentley design cues the basic shape is Aston Martin, and yet the designer complained about the Continental concept looking like the Flying Spur. He is right about the similarities between the Continental and Flyer Spur, but then again maybe throwing stones from glass houses is a bad idea.

Absolutely beautiful! It looks even better in these pictures. I see absolutely no reason why this car shouldn't be a home run for Lincoln. I also agree that, that particular shade of blue definitely needs to make it's way to the production car.

That color absolutely makes the car.

Caddy actually has a similar interior blue theme coming to their cars in their Black Label equivalent, it's called "Old Blue Eyes". I think it's safe to assume we'll see something like this on Continental.

I agree that the blue has a lot to do with why the car looks good, but I think the chrome under the blue helps out quite a bit as well IMHO.

I haven't heard of the interior color by that name, but there is a blue paint that's called that:

If the production version stays faithful to this concept, then Lincoln should have a hit on its hands with this new Continental.

I agree with everyone else. This car looks awesome in natural light.
