The Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition celebrates the brand’s heritage and it will be a proper flagship – at least in terms of pricing.
Following this morning’s announcement, we reached out to Lincoln’s North American communications manager Anika Salceda-Wycoco who confirmed the limited edition model will have a base price “just north of $100,000 (£79,277 / €88,130).” That’s more than twice the price of the entry-level Continental which starts at $46,145 before destination and delivery fees.
Of course, the Continental Coach Door Edition doesn’t skimp on the goods as it’s comes nicely equipped with a Black Label interior that features 30-way “Perfect Position” seats, Active Noise Control technology and a Revel Ultima audio system. That’s just the tip of the iceberg as the wheelbase has been stretched by 6 inches (152.4 mm) and this enables the model to deliver best-in-class second-row legroom.
One of the models more unique features is its full-length center console which boasts wood trim and dedicated climate controls. The console also has a stowable tray table and a tablet holder.
Power is provided exclusively by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that develops 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque.
The Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition is currently available to order through Lincoln Black Label dealers and first models are scheduled to arrive next summer. Only 80 units will be built for the 2019 model year, but Lincoln has already confirmed availability will extended into the 2020 model year.
While $100,000 is a lot to pay for a Lincoln, interested customers will have a chance to check out the Continental Coach Door Edition at the North American International Auto Show. The press preview begins on January 14th and the doors open to the general public five days later.
