Lincoln Coach Door Continental Will Be Suicide On Your Wallet As Prices Start Over $100,000

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.

    It may be expensive, but the limited numbers being produced will keep used value prices sky high!

    Ehh, 20k more for the limited edition.. I guess it isn’t all that bad considering it’s essentially an 6in longer black label model.

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Looks amazing with that B pillar..NOT

    • MarketAndChurch

      Rolls Royce vehicles have suicide doors with b-pillars…

      • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

        Yeah and it looks better than this giant camry

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      You think it could pass modern crash test standards with no B pillar? Nope.

      Rolls is even doing it.

      • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

        Mazda RX8 managed it

  • Merc1

    Now you know why they’re only making 80 units.

    Good on Lincoln for having the courage to build a car like this. I think it looks VERY high end. Very nice.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Shame about the B-pillar…but kudos to Lincoln still. Mercedes and Audi aren’t doing this right now.

  • TheBelltower

    $100k is about $40k more than this car looks like it should be. The coach doors are worth precisely $0. But they are cool nonetheless, and should be on all Continentals.

  • Dick

    Nope. Not for a Ford. That’s high-end BMW money in this ain’t no high-end BMW.

    • brn

      That’s not high-end BMW money. You can option out a 7-series to $170K

  • john1168

    I like the car. It looks VERY well equipped and is real comfy inside but….$100k+??? Who is going to buy this? For that money, one would be insane to take this over a Mercedes or BMW.

    • brn

      People kept saying the Continental needed to be more upscale. That comes with a price.

      Insane? Not once you take into account the maintenance costs for Mercedes or BMW.

      • john1168

        I don’t mind it costing more to be more upscale. But isn’t this the same platform as the new Chinese Taurus?

        • brn

          It’s also the same platform as the Fusion, Mondeo, Edge, Galaxy, S-Max, MKZ, and Nautilus. What does any of this have to do with being upscale?

  • PK

    calm down lincoln you ain’t no rolls royce xD

  • BlackPegasus

    Another missed opportunity here. Sure, the coach doors are a novelty but the the rest of the vehicle has already grown stale with people who actually pay attention to cars. The rear tail lights should’ve been heavily revised with jewel-like LEDs that commands your attention. The front could also use something to differentiate it from the lesser models. It simply lacks the opulence needed to pull off such a bold design statement.

    Again, another missed opportunity. Lets face it, this car will never compete fully with the juggernauts of Mercedes, BMW and even Cadillac but it could’ve been something truly unique and classic. I wanted them to succeed but oh well…

    • MarketAndChurch

      The s class is struggling really badly right now and is doing as badly as the 7 series was a couple years ago here in the US. As of right now, the 7 series is 200 units in sales behind the Continental. And Cadillac Ct6 was killed off.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I take back my comments from a few days ago. This is freaking awesome. The only thing this car needs is to be the size of the Sclass to accommodate taller passengers and the RWD/AWD platform of the Aviator for better proportions and performance.

  • Paul

    It’s interesting to say the least. I wonder though how doors opening that way would work as far as everyday practicality and in the ease of ingress/egress?

  • kachuks

    For that amount, one could buy a suicide door Continental restomodded to the gills. Infinitely cooler and the resale would never even compare.

  • pcurve

    Dear Lincoln,

    Great job lately. Execs, product mgr, designers, production, are all doing fantastic job. Now the hard part… making your car very reliable on long term.

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      “Now the hard part… making your car very reliable on long term.”

      They already are far more reliable than any German offering, and more reliable than Infiniti.

  • Mr. EP9

    Seeing as only 80 of these will be made perhaps they’ll sell out.

  • Bash

    I love that. Kinda poor mans Rolls-Royce.

    • brn

      But more reliable.

      • Bash

        I really hope so, those latest Lincoln products started to grow on me . can’t wait for them to update all the rest of their entire line up with the dash similar to the Navigator & Aviator.

  • SteersUright

    Sorry, this looks cheesy. If it had the proportions of a RWD car, this would look every bit the American Rolls. Instead, it just looks gimmicky to me. Asking $100k for a FWD based Lincoln is a bad joke, no wonder they’re producing so few. That said, the upcoming Aviator is the first Lincoln I’ve seen worthy of real excitement. I hope it looks and drives as impressive when its released.

  • Astonman

    Those 6” helped lengthened the car and made it better looking. I really like this.

  • StrangerGP

    As much as I like its looks no one will pay over 100 grand for this car. You can buy a well maintained used Bentley Flying Spur for the same amount of money.

  • charlotteharry57

    They’ll still sell all 80 in no time.

  • EyalN

    what is going on in this car? threesome?
