The latest and greatest Lincoln has the Continental name coming out from behind the shadows to assume its rightful place at the top of the automaker’s range.
As with any great ride, controversy needs to be on point as well – after all, there is no such thing as bad publicity. So, let’s go past the accusations of having the Continental inspired by British marquees and target the next point of controversy – the quirky location of the handlebars. If you’re one of the fans of the regular location we have a solution for you – though it might then spark another debate on its own. That’s simply because the artist behind the digital reinterpretation also decided to have the Continental lose two of the doors and become a Theophilus Chin coupe render. The Continental has been eagerly awaited by Lincoln fans and we imagine there would be a growing bunch that would like to see it imagined as a GT coupe as well.
By the way, the coupe render is not without target – the Continental back in the 1980s had the Luxury Sports Coupe (LSC) trim for the Mark VII generation. We’re off the mark here with details about such a model being on the official roster at Ford, but we do believe such a variation could have success. Meanwhile, you can judge this independent proposal and we’ll remind you the top of the line Lincoln will come to the market this fall sporting the brand’s exclusive 3.0-liter V6 in biturbo guise and churning out 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
