1988 Lincoln Machete

Adventures in styling shapes that flowed were prevalent in the Lincoln Machete concept car of 1988. Airflow management was the key with front and rear lift control devices helping downforce and braking as well. A six window design flowed into the trunk. Controllable glass tinting was controlled via LCDs. Head and taillights were minimal in area, but were not to lack in intensity. The driver was surrounded by a flowing display area and console with fiber optic graphics, while the passenger had a smoothly sculptured safety bar. Outside rearview mirrors were replaced by television cameras with a pair of screens on the dash completing the circuit. Source: Internet
