Lot 121

2003 Lincoln Navicross Concept

Sold for $23,100


Interior and exterior display model. No drive train. Wheelbase: 114"



- Innovative crossover sport coupe/sedan

- Maximum-access doors

- Fiber optic lighting technology



Following from the Lincoln MK9 and Continental concepts, the Navicross adapts their themes to a new niche, combining coupe, sedan and crossover sport utility vehicle attributes. Characterized by a strong stance and perfect poise, the Navicross rides on 20-inch wheels shod with all-terrain tires. Based on a modified Lincoln LS platform, it features full-time all-wheel-drive with adaptive traction control. A true sedan, it has coupe looks with center-opening pillarless doors.



A horizontal one-piece grille incorporates a complex headlamp array using fiber optic ribbon and a remote “light engine.” This innovation maximizes the packaging efficiency of the front end, minimizing overhang and reducing the overall vehicle length. Door hinges are fully integrated into a ring frame made of high-strength composite materials and rotate 90 degrees to provide maximum ease of ingress and egress. The interlocking doors provide integral side impact protection, and an integral rollover cage is designed into the vehicle, supported by the door ring frame.



The interior theme is one of cleanliness and simplicity. A symmetrical instrument panel and doors harmonize with sumptuous aniline leather seating, exquisite hair-on-hide door panels and the latest technologies in materials, screens, voice-activated systems, solar roof panels and fiber optic lighting. The hard-shelled seats appear to float above the vehicle’s hardwood finished floor, while a lateral structure slots into the doorsill and tunnel, giving the rear passengers increased foot space. The interior gives the impression of immense space, as well as providing innovative stowage solutions.



Projected specifications included a supercharged 32-valve 4.2-liter aluminum V8 supplying to a full-time all-wheel-drive system with adaptive traction control through a five-speed automatic transmission with manual sequential function. Suspension is by independent air springs with adjustable ride height. Brakes are high-performance Brembo anti-lock discs, with Hill Descent Control and Electronic Brake Force Distribution.



Please note this concept car is an interior and exterior display model, without drivetrain, and is offered on a bill of sale only.



Offered by the Ford Motor Company. Sale proceeds to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Children’s Center. More information is available here.
