The new Lincoln Continental comes to the Gulf
Without a doubt, the Lincoln Continental is an American automotive icon. How iconic? Well, put it this way, it is arguably the most recognised brand to come out of Michigan, the US car capital.
The Continental was born in 1938, when Henry Ford's son Edsel commissioned a convertible he could use on his spring vacation, it went down so well in Palm Beach the car soon become part of the production line. This is the revival of the modern the American luxury sedan, the name alone has an aura about it. The Continental has distinctive exterior, commanding size and ample roomy interior.
The car of choice for statesmen and movie stars throughout history. It was the luxery vehicle of Presidents Lindon B. Johnson and President Nixon, JFK was in the convertible Lincoln Continental on that historically tragic day in Texas (might want to omit the JFK bit). Warner Brothers gave Elizabeth Taylor a 1956’ Continental matching her violet eyes, Clark Gable once owned one and so did Elvis Presley.
Making its debut in the UAE, 2017 Lincoln Continental is finally among us. This feat of modern American engineering comes with front wheel drive as standard, 10-speaker audio system, a chrome-trimmed dash and "Perfect Position Seats" in reference to the optional 30-way adjustable front seats. The 3.0-litre twin turbo V6 engine produces 378 HP and 575 Nm of torque at 3,500 RPM and is sure to give its German rivals a run for their money while restoring understated true American luxury.
