Lincoln MKR– 415 Hp, twin-turbocharged, rear-wheel drive Detroit concept
Here’s a double “cheerio” for our beloved subscriber of Car & Driver. He already scanned the C-XF Concept images from the 2007 Feburary issue of the mag, so it was only logical that he’d do the same with Lincoln’s Detroit Show Concept.
Judging from the scanned pics, the MKR’s dramatic 4door-coupe looks will surely arouse the interest of a lot of people in the Detroit Show where it will make its premiere. According to the writer of the article, the MKR is based on stretched version (by 5.8 inches) of the Mustangs platform but instead of a solid rear axle, it receives a multilink independent rear suspension. The MKR is powered by a twin-turbocharged version of Ford’s 3.5 V6 Duratec engine that sends 415 Hp to the rear wheels.
