Lincoln Anniversary Concept and what imagination can become in 2040 | Car All New



Starting price: $ ?


The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and events surrounding it like The Quail, bring the best designs in the world to Northern California once a year. Many times they are new supercars, sometimes they are concepts, and sometimes, as with this Lincoln, they are design studies brought to life in metal.




Remember the Audi SkySphere concept that the German automaker unveiled on August 10? The long, low, meaty two-door sedan designed in Malibu, California previewed elements of Audi's upcoming design language? This is not that car. Here's the Lincoln Anniversary concept, a long, low, meaty two-door sedan designed at ArtCenter College of Design - about an hour's drive from Malibu - as a potential preview of Lincoln design elements . There's clearly something in the pool of general automotive design trends, and we dig into it.




A few months ago, Lincoln announced it was partnering with ArtCenter, inviting students to create four concepts that they would introduce as an integral part of meaningful human stories. Transportation students worked with classmates in other disciplines like film and animation to imagine what the Lincolns might be like in 2040 and beyond, and created short films to bringing concepts and stories into the future world. One concept is needed to accommodate two people, one to hold four, another will hold four at elevated ride heights, and the largest will be a six-passenger vehicle. They all had to live up to Lincoln's promise to fly Quiet Flight and its CASE theme, about connectivity, self-driving, sharing, and going electric.




The concept Glider serves two people in sedan form, inspired by Zephyrs and Continentals of yore. As the star of the short film "Now You Drive," a son picks up his wheelchair-bound father in the Roller Coaster and puts his father in the driver's seat, placing the wheelchair in the back. The father took the wheel and drove for the first time in many years, while the sedan had the ability to automatically withdraw the accelerator and brake pedals and control the speed on its own. Designer Jin Kim posted a detailed analysis of his development work on Glider, as well as a short clip. This site is well worth a visit.




A 4-seater SUV concept from the "Between the Stars" short with touchscreen windows and an augmented reality panoramic roof. The protagonist gets a taste of a starry night for the first time on a family trip to White Sands National Park looking through the glass, the roof keeping her curious with displays like marking and naming constellations star. She recalled that night years later as an astronaut preparing for her first spacewalk.




The six-passenger concept seems to draw a line back to the streamlined 1936 Duro Metal Products van body mounted on a Ford truck chassis. In "Ensemble," which automatically drives a band to a gig, six musicians relax in their chic, portable green room.

And then there's the Anniversary concept, which takes its name from the short film it appeared in. Despite being a four-seater, the film takes a couple celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary in a cabin as they roam the city visiting their favorite old haunts. As they do, the widescreen digital console projects images from their past. Lincoln liked the idea so much that he built the car and displayed it at this weekend's festival in Monterey at The Quail. If we're lucky, Lincoln will take it on a tour around the auto show, because it deserves to be seen. You can check them all out in the gallery.




This is said to be a four-passenger car, so we could see a bit (very little) extra space in the back for rear passengers. We were given no information on the concept powertrain for this car, but Lincoln noted in his release the Anniversary Concept is "not for sale".
