The Lincoln Continental luxury sedan is celebrating 80 years of presence in the market, and this is a special 80th anniversary edition which comes with coach doors, also known as suicide doors.
“The center-opening doors became synonymous with the Lincoln Continental, even though they were only featured primarily in the ’60s,” said David Woodhouse, design director, The Lincoln Motor Company. “But they struck such a chord that they’re still remembered so fondly today.”
Each of the 80 units will have a special door sill plate featuring its number in the run. A limited number of additional Continental Coach Door Edition sedans will be available as well for the 2020 model year.
The anniversary edition gets an additional 6 inches of wheelbase, in order to facilitate the larger coach doors, while also delivering greater leg room. Rear seat amenities include an elegantly crafted pass-through console that offers a stowable tray table with tablet holder and wireless charging pad.
The seats are adjustable in 30 ways. More features include Head-Up display, Active Noise Control for a quiet interior, Revel Ultima audio system, and electronic door handles.
The 80th anniversary Lincoln Continental is powered by a 3.0 twin-turbo V6 which produces 400 hp and 400 lb.-ft. (542 Nm) of torque. Three drive modes, including Normal, Sport and Comfort, allow clients to personalize their driving experience.
