2002 Lincoln Continental Concept
- Chassis no. 20021
Sold for $27,500
- Displayed at the 2002 Los Angeles Auto Show
At the 2002 Los Angeles Auto Show, Lincoln presented the concept for the Continental. Two concept cars are known to exist, with one being a semi-functional V-12 sedan and the other being this static display unit for special venues.
Incomplete mock-ups, such as this one, are common on the show circuit. Customer reaction to a design can be accurately gauged from a static model, and such cars are much simpler and more economical to build. These vehicles are sometimes called “pushers,” as they need only rotating wheels to roll them into place. Since they are lighter, albeit not as maneuverable, they can be more convenient to transport.
The Lincoln Continental Concept was conceived as a powerful yet understated executive car and designed to maximize both interior space and ease of entry and exit. However, this is primarily an exterior-only display unit, with only the top quarter of the seats exposed for photographic purposes. It features all custom, one-off body panels and trim and rides on massive 22-inch wheels. The production car was projected to include a 414-horsepower, 6.0-liter DOHC V-12 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, multi-link independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes.
This well-kept display concept can easily be appreciated for its grand design and unique history.
