Lincoln Continental Concept Heralds Future Of American Brand
|   Saturday, May 09, 2015
The North American automobile manufacturer Lincoln announced the concept of the future Continental, a limousine which will fight with models like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8. The prototype was presented at the Auto Show in New York.

Unlike the 20th century, the early 21st century no longer enjoys the luxury of cars created by Americans. The attempts of those from Buick, Cadillac and Lincoln, continue to be unsuccessful in financial terms, because of buyers' wishes to give their money to the Germans and Japanese.


To change things for the better those from Buick and Lincoln threaten their rivals by creating luxury concepts. The model from Buick was presented in January in Detroit, and more recently those from Lincoln presented in New York a version called Continental Concept.

The model foreshadows the future flagship brand owned by Ford Motor and combines modern design trends with the retro elements of the Continental generation sold in the 1960s. In order to be remarked Lincoln chose this path to differentiate from the competition. Mark Fields, CEO and President of Ford, promises that the new Lincoln brand model based on the Continental concept and scheduled to arrive in 2016 will exceed expectations and ensure the future of the US trademarks.

The series version of the future Continental will not look identical to the concept, but the model that will be launched in 2016 will follow the lines dictated by this exhibit. Among the things which are clearly seen on the Continental Concept we have door handles that retract in the doors, the rims which are 21 inches in diameter and made from polished aluminum, a chrome front grille and modern posterior.

Mechanically, the model has a V6 EcoBoost engine, displacing 3.0 liters, which delivers resources to the rear axle. Among the technological features of this model we have an automatic braking system when detecting an imminent impact even with a pedestrian, a parking assist system, 360 degree coverage camera system for parking maneuvers, and many other driver assistance systems.

And if we're talking about a class F model, the new Continental imposes with its luxurious interior. Here we see individual front and rear seats on 30 adjustable directions, golden ambient lighting, front passenger seat that can be completely reclined, special refrigerator to cool champagne and panoramic glass roof.
With the help of SPD SmartGlass technology, the ceiling can go from transparent to tinted by pressing a button, all while blocking 99 percent of UV rays. Thus, Continental Concept occupants can control the heat provided by the sun.

Rear passengers will have separate access to multimedia control, receiving an individual screen between the 2 chairs and the car's exclusivity is evidenced by Venetian leather upholstery, Alcantara, pink gold items and surfaces covered with sheep wool.

The first 9 Lincoln Continental generations were produced between 1939-1948 and 1956-2002, giving customers a superior level of luxury and refinement. What will be the fate of the 10th generation will be found out in the coming years, after the public will say what they think about the concept and officials will decide how to finish the series model, all while eagerly awaiting for wealthy customers in North America.
