Lincoln Is Bringing Back Suicide Doors



There’s a new coach in town. The all-new 2019 limited Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition will now be offered with suicide doors reminiscent of its grandfather, the 1961 Lincoln Continental. Though, only 80 of these spacious sedans will be produced with that number chosen due to the nameplate’s 80th anniversary.

When the brand was transforming in attempts to stay ahead, the 1961 Lincoln Continental was introduced with center-opening doors that became popular for Hollywood’s A-listers, world leaders, and socialites, among others.

These new Continental Coach Door Editions will be fully loaded Black Label models, and the car will be stretched six inches to make adequate room. It will be all-wheel drive and powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine capable of 400 horsepower. While only 80 will be sold, Lincoln believes that there may be more demand for the car and will produce an unclear amount of Continental Coach Door Editions for the 2020 model year, but they won’t be 80th-anniversary models. The new Lincoln announced that on December 17th they plan on taking orders, and the price won’t be cheap. The new Continental will likely sell for upward of $100,000.
