Lincoln Continental Concept previews the future of quiet luxury

Lincoln Continental has a long history and it is one of the iconic American cars that most car enthusiasts know.

The last and the ninth generation model went out of production in 2002 and was a very popular car for airport limo services.

The tenth generation Lincoln Continental will already arrive next year and is previewed as a concept at this week’s New York Auto Show.

The concept uses a new “Lincoln-exclusive” 3.0-litre EcoBoost engine, likely sending its power to the rear wheels.

The sleek exterior highlights include E-Latch door handles, allowing the doors to open effortlessly with the touch of a button positioned on the underside of the door handle wings and close quietly, LED matrix headlamps with laser-assist high beams and SPD SmartGlass tinting sunroof.

Inside reveals Venetian leather seat and door panels, Alcantara seat inserts and armrests, satin headliner and shearling wool carpet. Other special touches include Rose Gold trim around the instrument cluster, bright chrome trim on the instrument panel, ambient lighting and soft-gold LED.

For comfortable ride the concept comes with patented 30-way Lincoln-designed seats using a new-to-market design that conforms to passengers’ sizes and shapes.

Rear-seat passengers enjoy the convenience of a tablet-supporting lap tray that deploys from the through-centre console. There is also a champagne storage compartment.

All this rides on polished-aluminium, painted-pocket 21-inch wheels.

Safety tech list includes Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Enhanced Park Assist and a 360-degree camera that displays on the MyLincoln Touch screen.

The production model will be toned down obviously, but lets hope not too much.
