It’s Back To The Future With This Lincoln Anniversary Concept
Design students have re-imagined what Lincolns could look like in the not-so-distant future. And they look unbelievable.

The luxury carmaker tied to the Ford brand is never short on unique concepts and ideas. Case in point these new concept images shared for Monterey Car Week.
Designs come courtesy of the ArtCenter College of Design, who were tasked with coming up with something special as the brand steps into the next generation of vehicles.
In fact, the nonprofit college was asked to come up with four unique concepts. Concepts that retained the luxury feel while honing in on meaningful stories surrounding its customer base.
All designs had to deliver on the automaker’s promise to deliver Quiet Flight and a theme it dubbed: C.A.S.E (connected, autonomous, shared and electric).
Did the college succeed?
We believe so.

This four-door ‘Anniversary’ vehicle is a spoiler in every sense of the word in that it previews the future in the present day.
“The storyboarding presented by these students was beyond impressive, showcasing their rich design talent and creative approach to storytelling,” said Kemal Curic, global director, Lincoln.
“This is precisely why we decided to create a full-sized replica of one of the projects, highlight the amazing talent in tomorrow’s designers and their unique perspective of our Lincoln Quiet Flight brand DNA.”
Unlike some of the other concepts designed by the college, this one was actually displayed in a big way. At The Quail Motorsports Gathering, to be specific.
We can’t help but compare this concept to Audi’s SkySphere concept, given it follows a similar build. Both vehicles were imagined to tease future rides, too.
Seeing automaker’s embrace futuristic concepts in the age of electric cars is hella exciting and fills us with a lot of confidence moving forwards.
Wouldn’t you agree?
