It’s hard to believe that Lincoln Continental has been around for 80 years, but it’s is nevertheless true. The luxury brand is celebrating that milestone with a release of a special, luxury sedan with suicide doors—the Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition.
The anniversary edition features the a long list of luxury upgrades, starting with a six-inch longer wheelbase. The rear-seat is pass-through, and has a console with a stowable tray table. The interior is decked out in Lincoln Black Label detailing options. Most notable is the center-opening doors—also known as suicide doors. The look is a throwback to the 1961 Continental. The rear doors open to an impressive 90 degrees, giving plenty of room for egress. The longer car will also be blessed with a 400 horsepower engine.
No pricing details have been released yet, but rumor indicates that the anniversary edition will cost around $100,000 USD. What may drive up the cost even more—or at least the demand—is that this car will be limited to only 80 units. An initial limited run will happen in June of 2019, with a second run in 2020.
