I think is all CGI. I found it on YouTube, and I though you guys would like it.

BTW, the Lincoln Continental Concept made it on the cover-page of the current issue of the MOTORTREND magazine.

Was nice to see a Lincoln on the cover....

Re: Lincoln Continental concept

Saw it live today! Was unable to get very close as it was up on a turntable away from the other cars, but I love it in person. Much longer, lower, and wider than I imagined from pictures. Looks really big and very stately. My guess is the Chinese will love it, as long as they stay pretty faithful to the concept. Have a few pictures that I'm having trouble uploading right now (yay Chinese internet!), but we've already seen better, closer shots, so you're not missing much.

It would be nice if Ford designers would openly discuss their motives.
I love Lincoln but that's funny. I totally get what you're saying though.

Re: Lincoln Continental concept

^ nitpicking,

I rank the Kennedy Conti eye-to-eye with the first-body Buick Riviera
BUT
I see continuity between said Conti & the mid50s' Conti MkII (and thus/maybe even Edsel's first one)
((edit: now to the ContiConcept ))
yet
not-so the Riviera ...with any previous Buick I'm familiar with


then again
maybe "DNA" is a weighted word/concept for me?

I rate Lincoln's post-Z style performance equal to or better than "just about every other major car company"!!

guess MY main point is 3-parts:
-- ONE vehicle won't determine my judgement about Lincoln's DESIGN DNA
-- do NOT want to have the DNA flip-flop with every major debut!!!!!!!!!
-- really REALLY want to see some DEVELOPMENT year-after-year, where there IS a relationship PLUS improvement/intensification PLUS incorporation of new ideas
( no, I don't ask for much** )


in a sense, that^s how it should be imho
except** that we fans should feel confident that whatever is next, IT'S GONNA BE GOOD

that said
at THIS point
think Lincoln ought to let us know something



AND/BUT
I want *ALL* the CuvSuvs to '''adjust''' (not flip-flop) withIN 13 months!!
