Lincoln’s $110,000 Continental Coach Door Edition Sold Out – All 80 Of Them

Lincoln has managed to sell all 80 examples of the Continental Coach Door Edition that it planned to produce this year, only a month after announcing and releasing pictures of the car online.

The news was confirmed by Lincoln Global Communications Manager, Angie Kozleski, who told Carscoops that demand actually exceeded expectations for the brand’s most expensive vehicle, which cost a little over $110,000, more than double the price of a base 2019 Continental.

There was no special process to get the car, with all examples of the suicide door Continental sold through the Black Label dealers. As for the actual deliveries, clients will have to wait at least until this summer, for first cars to be shipped.

Compared to the regular Continental, the Coach Door Edition has a 6 inches (15.24 cm) longer wheelbase. This not only frees up a lot of extra space at the back, but was apparently mandatory for fitting the rear suicide-opening doors, its distinctive feature. Active Noise Control, premium sound system, head-up display and other special amenities set it apart furthermore.

The Continental Coach Door Edition uses a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, rated at 400 hp (406 PS / 298 kW) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque. Each car has three driving modes called Normal, Sport and Comfort.

If you missed your chance to purchase the special edition, don’t worry, because the company will bring it back.

“Looking ahead, we have confirmed a second-year run for the Continental Coach Door Edition, and will have more to share very soon”, Angie Kozleski told Carscoops.

Details about that lot are basically nonexistent, but clients should expect the same rear suicide doors and a lot of luxury features, for roughly the same starting price.

    It’s not like it’s 80,000 but I applaud Lincoln for making this.

  • carlbolt

    When will they come back to sue Ford for the suicide door? I don’t think they’ll take very long time.

  • Adilos Nave

    I’m guessing there isn’t a way to make it structurally strong enough to eliminate the B-pillar entirely. That’s a shame. If anything, they missed a good opportunity to add an illuminated Lincoln logo on the B-pillar when the doors are open, bringing even more attention to the suicide doors. They really should have painted that pillar black.

    • Tinky-Winky

      Actually Ford just recently produced B-Max that had no B-pillar.

      • Matt

        Correct, but the B-Max is a much shorter and lighter car.

    • Matt

      Well if Rolls-Royce can’t eliminate the B-Pillar with the Phantom, I don’t think Lincoln has a chance.

    • Danny Boy

      Perhaps Mazda would revisit their relationship and teach them a thing or two about the suicide doors. My 8 was great!

    • Danny Boy

      Wait, doesn’t the F-150 have suicide type doors?

  • TheToadPrince..~~ToadSquad

    100k for some car that actually finnally put on suicide doors….wtf

  • Six_Tymes

    Kudos to Ford/Lincoln. This is beautiful.

  • ErnieB

    It just doesn’t look natural.. I find that the front fascia should also be more imposing.. it’s not a bad looking car but it’s not aging well..

  • Merc1

    Hopefully Lincoln won’t give up on this car and redesign it on the new RWD platform and give it a killer look inside and out, building on the initial success of this model. Offer the coach doors from the start and possibly a V8 version. Lincoln is on the right track here, but you gotta ditch the warmed over Fusion bones for the next one.

      I don’t think it’s Lincoln who gave up but the market who gave up. They love crossovers too much. Personally I love this thing.

      • Merc1

        Nah, that’s just an excuse. People are still buying luxury cars.

      • Danny Boy

        Wrong…….Do you remember the crap that they’ve produced in the last decade? LS was something they could’ve built on, and they abandoned it for FWD cheap trash! There’s a huge market for sedans, good sedans, dope sedans!!!

        • Stigasawuswrecks

          But there’s a far greater market for SUV’s. If you take for example the BMW 5 series year over year sales has dropped but year over year sales of the X5 has increased.

    Alan Mullaly should have been retired and let Jim Farley took over Lincoln years ago! Thanks, Jim!

  • I WONDER HOW BUYERS WILL FEEL WHEN THE NEXT GEN AT $50- $80K HAVE THE SAME SET-UP.

  • Bash

    This is excellent news to read. We all have to give Lincoln a credit, they are on the right track. There design and recent cars has already grown well on me and what was once before a (no way I’m considering a Lincoln for my next car) now it’s just might, it just really this close might.

  • TheBelltower

    Good. Hopefully now they’ll produce a meaningful number of them.

  • Craig

    Great news!! I hope this encourages Lincoln to not only make more of them [more than just 80 more] but perhaps a flagship ‘Town Car’ with these doors.

  • EyalN

    Can someone explain to me what the deal with the people in the car ?
    One guy in the back, when this kind of cars is for rich people with a driver.
    And 2 people are in the front. It looks like they are all together.

    • TheAmerican

      Um they are just models. Don’t worry about it

  • Blade t

    Everybody loves suicide doors..

      Like why tha hell can’t they figure that out???
