Interviewed by Popular Mechanics magazine, Brian Malczewski commented: “The inspiration came from Chris-Craft—antique wood boats. I felt like that was the perfect inspiration because it kind of represents this iconic American styling that I really wanted to bring to the car.”

Among the Chris-Craft-inspired elements are the side curvature from front to back, the chopped-off rear, and sharp section lines.

    I suppose in the future we won’t need to see OUT of a car? I am so tired of ridiculously small openings…I mean they look tough, etc. but are dangerous!

    Breathtaking! I guess Lincoln designers could learn a thing or two about simplicity and minimalism in luxury car design 😛
