That six-figure sum is nearly $40,000 over the top-tier Continental.
If you are in the market for Lincoln’s limousine, the standard Continental Black Label will set you back just under $77,000. But what if you wanted suicide doors? The 2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition revives the old-fashioned coach doors, for a price. Not just a bit of a price, either. Last year, all 80 examples of the 2019 Coach Door Edition sold within two days. Now, Lincoln has opened the order books once again, and the company is building 150 cars, according to a Motor1 report.
Is that $115,000 hit worth it? Plenty of people thought so last time around, so surely Lincoln can sell this batch too. This car starts with the standard Continental Black Label, then Lincoln adds the rear-hinged doors and adds some tweaks as well. Under the hood is the same 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 400 horsepower, 400 lb-ft of torque and all-wheel drive.
While Lincoln shows the car here in Chroma Crystal Blue, you can also get it in Infinite Black or Pristine White Metallic. On the inside, you can go for either the an Alpine “Chalet” interior or a Jet Black “Thoroughbred” motif. The center console also incorporates a table for rear passengers, and there’s also a 110V power outlet, two USB ports and a four-inch display for climate controls.
If you want a 2020 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition, you won’t have long. Orders are only open through the end of October. Beyond that, deliveries will take place starting in Spring 2020. We’ll have to wait and see how quickly they sell out this time. However, it’s likely all 150 examples will be spoken for before the order books close at the end of the month.
Sure, Lincoln’s crossovers will be the bulk sellers for the brand. However, thanks to those suicide doors, this is undoubtedly the coolest Lincoln some folks will be able to buy.
