Looks amazing! Looks like a rear biased proportion. Cross between Bentley, XF, and the headlights are similar to Acura. That is the only similarity to Acura. Would prefer this to Caddy's angular styling. Not sure how the door handles will be once it is production ready.

Rear biased for an attack on the Chinese market maybe, I see slight shades of Maserati/Bentley on the front end, Audi rear lights.

Can someone with their skills in Photoshop, give this car suicide doors please?

I like the call-outs - a good way to make sure none of the details get missed and creates a nice overall impression.

From the Auto News article:

Early in development, "it was nice, but it didn't blow anyone away," Woodhouse said. Then, Ford Motor Co.'s top executives gave the order to call it the Continental, which Woodhouse described as a pivotal moment.

"When that name was mentioned," he said, "that reset expectations and the standards we have to meet."


LEGEND. INTEGRA. Yep.

I don't think Acura should make a car like this necessarily but the idea that nomenclature is important (like with the NSX) in both setting and realizing expectations definitely applies to Acura.

The Continental looks nice enough - it's got a little TOO much happening I think (the door handles are one thing too many) but obviously they've paid attention to details.

Love it. I don't feel any connection to the brand, but I love the design. I'm pretty sure the car will be a maintenance nightmare comes 5+ years, but in the premium market, one throws away a car and buy another one... Excesssssssss.....

I've mentioned it before, but my brother-in-law is a former Lincoln executive. If you want some laughs, you should hear the stories he has...that company is absolutely bat shit crazy. One of my personal favorites was the decision to remove the keypad door locks on the Town Car...that resulted in some interesting screaming matches.
