I like it too, but then I am a fan of "berlinetta" styling.

The front reminds me of a 300ZX. With a few tweaks it could have been a pretty neat car.

Looks like a cross between an Aston Martin (rear C pillar) and a 60's Toronado (front headlights).

I like it!

So maybe the new Lincoln is watching/listening. Not especially my 'cup of tea' but there may be a market for it in Lincoln's resurgeance.

I don't like the wheels, but the car looks awesome.

However, since it's attractive, Ford won't do anything with it.

You probably have to appreciate this one in order to like the concept...

this is exactly why I dig the concept....nice shift from the 60s to 2000's while keeping some of the cool cues that the original had.

I love that.


The concept is gross though.

i dont really like the a-pillar or the front fascia. also, the window opening is tiny. I understand the hood and trunk line have to be higher since struts mount high but these window sills are getting higher and higher for no reason.

also, i think i see a faint seam indicating pillared doors, including the ugly curve :ack:
