Lincoln’s Marque X concept convertible, painted a burnt tangerine pearl orange hue, showcased a cab-forward design to maximize the space available for people. This future flagship featured a simulated spare-tire bulge on its decklid, speed-sensitive front underbody spoiler, low-profile fiber optic headlights, 19-inch cast magnesium wheels, and an electronic, speed-sensitive aerodynamic spoiler. Under the hood sat a 32-valve DOHC V-8, matched to a four-speed automatic transmission. A coded “credit card” was used to start the engine, and in the leather cockpit was a voice-activated telephone, navigation system, and fax machine. For rear passengers, the Marque X contained a pop-up TV and dual temperature food and beverage storage container.
