Suicide Doors Are Back On The Lincoln Continental For 2019

Posted by at 2:57 pm on December 18, 2018

Suicide doors are at once hopelessly impractical but brilliantly cool all the same. You don’t see them around much nowadays, except on Rolls-Royces, but thanks to Lincoln that’s about to change. To honor the Continental of the Sixties, which is famous for having suicide doors, it’s building a run of 80 modern-day Continentals with the very same feature.

The Continental ‘Coach Door Edition’ celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Continental name, which was first used in 1939. 80 will be built for the 2020 model year, each featuring the famous doors.

The whole car is six inches longer than standard to allow for the bigger doors, which open at a 90-degree angle to make ingress and egress as elegant as possible. A flow-through centre console features storage plus a tablet holder.

Each Continental also features a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6, giving 400bhp and 400lb ft, lots of leather and wood and a plaque commemorating its unique status.
