2002 Lincoln Continental Concept Auctioned

At the 2002 Los Angeles Auto Show, Lincoln presented the concept for the Continental. Two concept cars are known to exist, with one being a semi-functional V-12 sedan and the other being this static display unit for special venues.

Incomplete mock-ups, such as this one, are common on the show circuit. Customer reaction to a design can be accurately gauged from a static model, and such cars are much simpler and more economical to build. These vehicles are sometimes called “pushers,” as they need only rotating wheels to roll them into place. Since they are lighter, albeit not as maneuverable, they can be more convenient to transport.
