Concept Models Including MK9 and Mark X Going up for Auction - CarScoop
(edit: & Messenger!)


Friday, July 16, 2010
If you're looking to add a Lincoln concept model to your collection, here's your chance as a total of five design studies from the past decade will be offered for sale by Ford Motor Company at the RM's Sports & Classics of Monterey auction on August 12th. The proceeds raised through the sale will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Children's Center, an organization that is based in Michigan, USA.

The five Lincoln concept models up for sale are the 2001 MK9 coupe; 2004 Aviator SUV; 2005 MKS sedan; 2003 Navicross coupe crossover and last but not least, the Mark X which was a hardtop-convertible proposal for Lincoln's version of the Ford Thunderbird.

Bear in mind that even though all cars except the Navicross have are drivable, none can be registered for highway use in the States. Follow the break for a short description (from RM) and pricing estimates for each concept model.

Mercury's 2003 Messenger Sports Coupe Concept also up for Sale

Mercury's 2003 Messenger Sports Coupe Concept also up for Sale - CarScoop

Saturday, July 17, 2010
The five Lincoln concept models that we told you about on Friday will be joined by the 2003 Mercury Messenger concept at the RM's Sports & Classics of Monterey auction on August 12th.

The two-seater sports coupe prototype of the soon-to-be discontinued Mercury brand broke cover at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit back in 2003. It was supposed to herald a new and more stylish design language for the company while some had also suggested that it may inspire a production model - unfortunately for Mercury, that never happened.

Influenced by the Cougars of the late sixties with a rakish roofline that recalls Ford's GT supercar, the rear-wheel drive Messenger Coupe was designed to be powered by the Dearborn automaker's familiar 4.6 liter V8 engine (the study is not fitted with a powertrain). The folks over at RM Auctions estimate that the Messenger can fetch between US$75,000 and $100,000.

Concept cars highlight Ford-only day of RM's Monterey auction

Filed under: Concept Cars, Auctions, Ford

2004 Ford Mustang GT-R Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery

The RM auction is always one of our favorite events during the Monterey classic car week, and this year's looks to be one of the best yet. In fact, there are so many vehicles up for grabs that RM has scheduled an additional auction day featuring just Fords. Some historically-important vehicles will cross the block, including a 1903 Ford Model A and a 1962 Lincoln Continental used by John F. Kennedy.

Ford Motor Company itself will auction off some vehicles itself, including eighteen concept cars built from 2000 to 2004. Among the notable vehicles on the list are the 2001 Lightning Rod Concept, the 2001 Forty Nine Concept, the 2003 Supercharged Thunderbird Concept and the 2004 Lincoln Mark X Concept. Our favorite? The Mustang GT-R Concept that made its debut at the 2004 New York Auto Show. Ford will donate the proceeds of the sale to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Children's Center.

You can read more about the Ford-only auction day in the press release after the jump, or head over to RM's website to see a full list of vehicles up for sale.

ummm... that crhome acents in the Lincoln concepts! I like it, soo much. And the egg crate grille looks better than the recents Lincoln's grilles. Lincoln need, desperately, a coupe or coupe-convertible like the concept.

Ford Sells Concept Cars for Charity in Monterey

Ford Sells Concept Cars for Charity in Monterey - wheels.blog.nytimes.com

By PHIL PATTON
Eighteen Ford concept cars were sold Thursday evening by RM Auctions at the Sports and Classics of Monterey sale, one of many events taking place in Northern California in conjunction with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The sales raised nearly $1 million, with the Ford Motor Company donating the proceeds to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and to the Children’s Center of Wayne County, Mich., which assists troubled children and families...

...Highlights of the concepts included the 2001 Lincoln Mk9 coupe and Mark X concepts, as well as two forms of the 2002 Lincoln Continental — one a shell used on the auto show circuit and the other a nonrunning version with center-opening doors on complex articulating hinges and a pull-out luggage tray in the trunk, intended to hold matching Zero Halliburton aluminum luggage.

The shell sold for $15,400 and the more complete Continental for $56,500. (All prices include a 10 percent buyer premium.)...

...The Mk9 reinterpreted the classic Lincoln grille and fender edges of the Continental. The interior combined Dark Cherry Red and Marlboro Red leather; its cantilevered seats were inspired by a furniture icon, the Eames lounge chair. The intended engine was a 414-horsepower V-12.

The Mk9 was among three concept cars to bring six-figure prices, selling for $101,750...

...The sole Mercury to be auctioned was the Messenger of 2003, a concept for a sporty two-seater that could have broken the brand out of its rut of offering slightly modified versions of Ford models. The Messenger was said to convey “new design DNA” for Mercury; RM’s catalog called it a “sleek, stillborn sports coupe” and “a Mercury that might have been.” It sold for $52,250...
