Last week, we wrote about how Lincoln’s official Instagram posted an image which implied we’d soon see a modern Lincoln Continental with suicide doors. And now, that’s exactly what we’re seeing — but it’s not quite what we were hoping for.
Because the car you see in these photos is one of just 80 that’ll be produced. The number is a nod to the marque’s 80th birthday, and it’s worth noting that they won’t even be produced by Lincoln, but rather by Cabot Coach Builders of Haverville, Massachusetts. Other than the doors and a wheelbase that’s been extended six-inches, there will also be a unique rear seat console, akin to what you’d see in an uber-luxurious ride like a Maybach.
At this point, we don’t have any official info on pricing, but industry estimates say buyers should expect to pay north of 100k for the privileged of owning one of these glorious tributes to Lincoln’s past. And honestly, that seems fair, as this is likely as sure a bet there is in world of modern collectible cars.
We just hope they’re just more than that — we’re hoping they foreshadow what we can expect to see from the company in the future.
If you’re interested in bringing home one of these gorgeous machines, head to your local AutoNation-affiliated Lincoln dealer pronto, as we expect they’ll be spoken for before the last example is finished being built.
