    Lincoln is coming back!!!

    That is the New MKR with a v6 twin turbo that produces 415 HP. 0-60 in 5.3s.
    This means that the new MKS might have the TT engine.

    but now we actually know that the MKS might have TT engine. And even if the MKR comes into production, its not going look like that. They make changes before it comes out.

    It will be interesting to see the final, final version. The front end looks like an oriental guy smilin' though.

    The Sweet Sixteen knocked out 1,000 HP!!!

    It's a Ford concept..a dream car. Twin turbos won't happen.

    Re: Lincoln is coming back!!!

    The twin turbos might make it to production, but if they do, Lincoln has still missed the mark. 400 horses just isn't enough to compete with MB, BMW, or Caddy. And the fact it comes out of a 3.5l doesn't help either, Lincoln needs a V8 in its cars, period. Estimated 5.3 seconds will be more like 5.6 or 5.7, something the non-performance models from several companies are already doing.

    Man, that's an ugly car. It's good to see that Lincoln is putting out concept pieces though, shows that Ford still has the brains to pump capitol into them. Could this be a precursor to the long awaited (by me atleast) Mark IX?

    Yeah, but if it comes out looking like that, and in a sedan configuration, I'll be very disappointed.

    The CTS-V is producing 400 HP right now with a 0-60 in 5.3,(from MSN) so at least lincoln will be with them and that good enough for lincoln right now. V8 isn't really needed to get the performance numbers now a days(my oppinion). The lexus IS350 is getting 0-60 in 5.3,(MSN) same as the 400 HP V8 CTS-v. It doesn't always have to be slower then the factory times, Look at the BMW 335i. Factory 5.5s but it has reported 4.8s, so it can turn out to be like that.

    Re: Lincoln is coming back!!!

    True, but the new V will be 500 horses for sure, and the M3 and M5 aren't gonna get slower in the future. If Lincoln wanted to enter the performance sedan market, they shouldn't fall short from the get-go. 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.
