2007 Lincoln MKR

The most popular car in the Lincoln exhibit was the head-turning MKR prototype that introduced a new design language of “elegant simplicity” on a 4-door coupe, and debuted the all-new, fuel-saving TwinForce engine. Developed to perform comparable or better than V-8 engines, the 3.5-liter gasoline twin-turbocharged direct-injection V-6 deliverd 415 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque on renewable E-85 ethanol. This one-of-a-kind automobile sat on chrome aluminum wheels wrapped in unique Michelin tires that featured the Lincoln star in its treads. Chrome-trimmed gauges illuminated with Ice Blue lighting, and the concave spoke steering wheel included retractable paddle shifters. Visually, the MKR had clean, uncluttered surfaces, with a significant C-pillar that smoothly transitioned into the cantilevered roof. The double-wing grille was inspired by the 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet.
