the part of this pic that I'm most curious about is the C-pillar area...
imho it looks like they've got artandcolour's reverse slant (see his chop thread)
mixed with what might be a glass panel - kind of making a wrap-around rear window :eyes-wide:
I noticed that too. And I think it looks spectacular. I've always loved the wrap around rear window design. It always reminds me of the 1st & 2nd Gen. Mercury Sable's :D

This only makes me sad, Lincoln is stuck in FWD, Buick and Cadillac might not be in business and India is just about to unleash this?

Wow, how we have fallen!!
