2002 Lincoln Continental Concept news, pictures, and information
|Sold for $56,100 at 2010 RM Auctions.|
Under the hood was a 6.0-liter V12 engine that delivered 414 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. There were four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and a six-speed automatic transmission. The wheelbase measured 136.6-inches.
Each door panel and in the headliner featured indirect fiber optic lighting. Headlamps also utilize fiber optic technology, using a single light generator ducted by fiber to each of the four round headlamps. This requires less power than conventional halogen bulbs but produces two-and-a-half times the illumination. The instrument panel makes use of Organic Light Emitting Diode technology, which uses a light-emitting polymer film.
The deck lid is hydraulically-power operated and opens on a parallelogram linkage that keeps it horizontal at all times. When open, it provides easy access to three sliding storage draws fitted into the luggage compartment. A large luggage tray slides out by remote control to accept fitted Zero Halliburton luggage and golf club cases.
In 2010, this vehicle was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $70,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $56,100 inclusive of buyer's premium.
