Hahaha well said

Looking at prototypes is like looking at strippers with $5 in your pocket. They look awesome and promise much but you will never see either one come.
Mark Moreno Aug 25, 2012
this article stirs alot of optimistic feelings for lincoln in me. i hope lincoln becomes as world class as duesnberg was in the 1920s and 1930s!

It used to mean Mark about a decade back but the numbers got too high. Now it's just MK for the look and nothing else.
Sebastian Grey Aug 26, 2012
No it doesn't Cory. That would mean its the Mark F or the Mark Z. The MK is just a designation.
Cory Wilhelm Aug 25, 2012
MK means "Mark" like the Mark VIII.
Alexander Gomez Aug 25, 2012

Bennie Andthe Jets Aug 25, 2012
They need to come up with some better names instead of the MK crap
Ben Randle Aug 25, 2012
What? Brian is the person the mkf concept? I had to read that like 4 times
Edin Beka Aug 26, 2012
McDonalds happy meal toy. :P
Matt Greenlee Aug 25, 2012
i like it. its too cool for driving school
Jose Miguel Fernandez Aug 25, 2012
Kind if remindes me of The Acura concept
Terrance Parker Aug 25, 2012
@ Adam Patrick Lincoln is suppose to be Fords lux brand, so yes Lincoln is to Ford like Cadillac is to Chevy.
Logan LeMonnier Aug 25, 2012
@mark imagine if a lot of concept cars went into production. The world would look like irobot
Tim Preisinger Aug 25, 2012
This would be amazing if they made it. Would give Lincoln some much needed attention if nothing else
Abraham Mendoza Aug 25, 2012
This is their Mustang. I'm not sure if it'll happen, but it should.
Mark Moreno Aug 25, 2012
@Timothy hooker im just saying if it did go into production. imagine if it did.
Timothy Hooker Aug 25, 2012
profits skyrocket? not likely. its a nice car but would never be a production model. concepts are used to give direction...not finished product
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
I like this angle
Dale Schroeder Aug 25, 2012
Rather oppressive looking design. I'd expect to see something like this in a Judge Dredd movie.
Matt Piccolo Aug 25, 2012
It's... Different, I'm not in love but I do like it!
Mark Moreno Aug 25, 2012
imagine if lincoln made a car that looked like this. lincoln would see their profits skyrocket
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
This futuristic design would be like sculpture and would grab a lot of attention
Carlos McCrum Jan 29, 2013
I like it I think it would look nice in person.
Todd Randall Aug 25, 2012
Reminiscent of the CC75
Alex Velez Aug 25, 2012
It looks like a chop top maro (camero)
Tim Preisinger Aug 25, 2012
I agree with Matt on this
Abraham Mendoza Aug 25, 2012
What? I thought it was 2 door and shorter and taller. Damn it.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
its like the Lamborghini Estoque, only alot worse
Matt Piccolo Aug 25, 2012
Like the front but I'm not liking this angle
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
It is more so of a model
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 25, 2012
Im thinking where is the head room?

This is a terrible concept
Greg Lewis Aug 26, 2012
Lincoln does not need a neon for its brand...
Jose Miguel Fernandez Aug 25, 2012
The xb is ugly but the cube is the worst
Phil Johnson Aug 25, 2012
I actually like this. Sure it's not pretty, but look at all the air in there! It reminds me of the Renault Avantime
Javier Alonso Rivas Aug 25, 2012
thats not the way lincoln
Rodney Coleman Aug 25, 2012
The xB is not ugly
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
@Bennie, you sir, just made my day lol
Rob-Hater Hurter-Acuna Aug 25, 2012
Lincoln has really fallen off! they need to step up their game
Bennie Andthe Jets Aug 25, 2012
It's good except for the Lincoln badge on it
Matt Piccolo Aug 25, 2012
This is hideous period
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
Please No!!!!!!!! If Lincoln made this into production, they all need to be fired and hire a new design director.
Rocky Rocker Aug 25, 2012
Ugly, and for no particular reason...
Louis Marr Aug 25, 2012
I hate that straight line off lights across the back. it never looked good any of Lincolns cars
Rodgar Aug 25, 2012
barf! cube, barf with chuncks!
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
they're both gross, but I honestly think the cube looks better than this
Matt Piccolo Aug 25, 2012
Reminds me of the cube, ew

This is the look they need ,i hate the double slanted grille on the current model,lincoln always looked awesome with the single grille and chrome surround,what sucks is the fact that no parts manufacture can make a true chrome, without injecting plastic only to be weathered in about a year, I also think that ford as mercury did several times,is get the feed back from current and past lincoln owner...
Greg Lewis Aug 26, 2012
The suicide doors are a great way to breath life into their brand name. But with crash ratings, would the cost to build a safe car be possible for the buying market?
Phil Johnson Aug 25, 2012
Terrible. Everyone in the industry seems to be doing retro styled designs, I think Lincoln needs to do a retro styled Continental complete with suicide doors. Now that's something I would buy!
Cody Fullerton Aug 25, 2012
They were, and they should be again.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 25, 2012
The days of the massive Continental are gone. It's sad really.
Corey Mullis Aug 25, 2012
yes! this is exactly what Lincoln should be doing. rebadging Fords isn't good enough anymore. i take that back, it never was good enough
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
This is exactly how I envision Lincoln. In my opinion, when I see a Rolls Royce I think of Lincoln.
Cory Comer Dec 23, 2012
One could only hope this cones to production.
Andrew Palmer Aug 25, 2012
Why is this in here? It not complete...like someone stuck design elements together but never finished the final product...
Andrew Palmer Aug 25, 2012
Maybe they're just hubcaps for the hover units?
Alex Velez Aug 25, 2012
It looks like the car is siting on 30's. It's a hot looking ride
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
either they'll have no headroom, or the bottom of their seats will be scraping the ground. and I notice there's no mechanics, how do the wheels get turned round and round? magic? No I dont like this, sorry people who did it
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
Extreme poor photoshop or 3d max. But I must say the design speaks loud. I would love to see Lincoln consider fluid sculptural elements on their products, like this concept.
Description: It may not be too late for Lincoln to take the MKR from concept to reality. The four-door sedan debuted over five years ago and still looks as good now as it did then. The Lincoln MKR was built on a s...

Best looking one. But yes, a bit much
Alex Velez Aug 25, 2012
The grill is a bit much but the car is hot.
Adam Beiersdorfer Aug 25, 2012
I can't classify Lincoln as Luxury at all anymore... Either Ford actually makes them competitive, Or they need to pull the plug on an attempt to be in the Luxury game as these concepts clearly show they are throwing things against a wall and praying.
darrellbell24 Aug 25, 2012
I think they can still pull this look off today
Dale Schroeder Aug 25, 2012
That giant front grill makes the rest of the car look out of proportion. Tone it down a bit and this would look pretty solid.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
its quite good looking, except for the front. the front looks like a guard from skyrim, derping on drugs
Nick Benz Aug 25, 2012
Yea i agree. That grill is fugly. The rest is ok.
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 25, 2012
I wish they could replicate the body but modify the front facial and delete the signature split wing grill.
Greg Lewis Aug 26, 2012
The grills on all of them are huge drawbacks. Way to aggressive for the target group
Rocky Rocker Aug 25, 2012
Hideous Grille. I'm sure they can do much better...
Nick Benz Aug 25, 2012
Hurr durr im a lincoln
Nick Ricci Aug 25, 2012
Grille is horrific.
Description: The Mark X is one concept car that Lincoln would love to forget. A Thunderbird-inspired roadster couldn't help Lincoln back in 2004, and it certainly won't be able to help the fading luxury ...

Add suicide doors and I'm sold
Greg Lewis Aug 26, 2012
This is a great model. Could be a flagship car...
Matthew Crighton Aug 25, 2012
It almost looks like a late 60's Lincoln continental. With a camaro grill
Rocky Rocker Aug 25, 2012
The front reminds me of a Camero, then the rest well, truly sucks. Wha t are they smokin....
Cory Allen Aug 25, 2012
I hate convertibles, but this is awesome!
Andrew Palmer Aug 25, 2012
Base this on mustang and you might have a winner...good way to get that ecoboost 3.5 in the mustang.::
Andrew Palmer Aug 25, 2012
This looks good..designed from front to Back...not big nose grafted onto fusion or Taurus.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 25, 2012
Alex, how many times have you said "hot" today?
Brian Ball Aug 25, 2012
Make it a four door "suicide style", and THEN we can talk...
Alex Velez Aug 25, 2012
Now that's what I'm saying this is hot as hell I'll buy one.
Logan LeMonnier Aug 25, 2012
That is a good looking car
Malachi Monteiro Aug 25, 2012
That grille is very meh, it seems too damn big
Corey Alan Kelley Aug 25, 2012
I'd drive one of these...
Ben Mossing Aug 25, 2012
Other than the rear bumper, this would be the only Lincoln I would buy.
Rich Vuchetich Aug 26, 2012
should have let the file bankruptcy
Greg Lewis Aug 26, 2012
It's original, has a look to it. Love it or not, would stand out in a crowd
Zeus Mocha Aug 26, 2012
Lol @ Brian You stare at a girls ass for some time, she turns and it's a "butter face" FML
Cory Allen Aug 25, 2012
The rear is ugly.
Brian Ball Aug 25, 2012
Damn! I spoke too soon...never mind!
Bill Estep Jr Aug 25, 2012
Kind of looks like a tbird in the back
Logan LeMonnier Aug 25, 2012
Terrible with the top up
Dale Schroeder Aug 25, 2012
Pretty bland and plasticky looking, really. Doesn't have the same appeal the old slab-sided Continentals do.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 25, 2012
well, I can see where that hideous new Mclaren got its rear from
Boyd Boudreaux Aug 25, 2012
That's a old concept it's built off the t-bird frame
James E Caldwell Aug 25, 2012
Looks like the same designer as that new McLaren.
Jackson Bond Aug 25, 2012
I like it! If they did something with that rear bumper like maybe making it less drastic
