This limited-edition Lincoln Continental sold out in 48 hours, Detroit Free Press reports. Priced at a whopping $110,000 (N39,792,500.00), all the 80 units manufactured will be delivered to the lucky new owners who will be notified next month.
A marketing director at Lincoln told the Detroit Free Press, “Our first two calls came from New York and the West Coast, each wanted to be first. One customer was one of these people who could have whatever they wanted, and he wanted to match the Lincoln with his aircraft.”
The number of units produced was derived from the fact that it is the company’s 80th birthday, and Ford MoCo’s been busy sifting through scores of applications to select the right people (no insight is given about the selection process) and those who made the list will be informed of their good fortune sometime in February. Delivery is slated for the summer.
The Limited-Edition Continental will be produced in conjunction with Boston-based coach-builder Cabot, who will oversee stretching the wheelbase and putting in the iconic suicide doors. Under the hood, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of twist.
