Lincoln MKF Design Study Grabs Our Attention

Lincoln looking to university students to help with its styling revival.

As Lincoln look to reinvent themselves with a new styling direction that started with the reveal of the MKZ Concept at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show, Ford is encouraging students to create Lincoln concepts. University transportation design students came up with a proposal for a pure-electric Continental for 2025 back in January that was endorsed by Ford, and now another emerging talent has developed a Lincoln backed concept that is sure to pique the interest of the marque.

Brian Malczewski, an automotive design student from Detroit's College for Creative Studies, came up with this MKF Concept, which appears to be a rival to the BMW 6-Series Grand Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Whether Lincoln take the concept further is highly unlikely but a car that started life as a sketch penned by a promising young college design student is not beyond the realms of possibility.
