At least the first generation CTS-V was an even match for the M5, but BMW just had to go and redesign it a year later, lol.
    I haven't heard anything about the next gen CTS-V. The Super V from awhile ago got canned and that was the last thing I've heard about any short of next gen CTS-V.

    Actually these new Lincolns are not like they have a performance package like the V for the caddy, M for BMW and AMG for the mercedes.(the F for lexus) Its just a simple lincoln. I Hope lincoln creates its performace package like X series or K series Like they had one for the Navigator.(never in production)

    Imagine: "The new Lincoln MKZR!"

    What a horribly abrupt combination of letters.

    My first impression was okay, till I saw the inside pic. I almost after that. On paper it sounds good, but I doubt, even if it gets the go ahead, it will be anything close to that.

    Ford totally stole those wheels from the Buick Velite concept

    Its a nice design. Just like new production Lincolns, I dont like the grill. But the general design of this car is nice.

    Concept, period.

    Until a manufacturer commits to a production car it all engineer's dreams and window dressing.

    Typically when a new model is introduced they hold back on the engine dept. Just like the Cadillac CTS. It was introduced with a now defunct 3.2 engine. I'm betting a Happy Meal no twin turbos at the get go.

    I really don't think that Lincoln is trying to attack any performance market. At this point they would be just happy with a decent performing car not an M5 or CTS-V killer.

    Great minds think alike! Remember when Lincoln called off the V8 version of the MKS and what was the first thing I said after I heard this on here? That they better make a turbo'd 3.5 V6 and then I said one could only hope! Well it looks like my dream is coming true!

    Not in 2008. Possibly 2010.

    It's a shame they're not going after this market. They cancelled the V8 due to expense and in my opinion Lincoln is the only one out of the Ford stable that could come after Caddy and Chrysler in the performance sedan arena. If they don't, no one will. Lincoln needs a halo car and the Town Car nor the MKS ain't it. MKS "SS" is just what they need. AWD with 450 HP. Now that would turn some heads!

    It would also give Lincoln the respect it needs if it wants to continue to be a serious contender in the marketplace. It seems as if they are trying to stay in a late 20th century model lineup, with car-classes and designs. Becuase the market has changed, I think something radical, like this concept, would do them some good. Changing marketplaces is why I really believe Cadillac made the V series. They saw a market for overpowered luxury was out there, and they did well to take advantage of it.

    I may not like the car, but overall Lincoln should do this.
