Lincoln MK Coupe

In this BoldRide exclusive, we take a look at what a Mustang-based Lincoln coupe could look like, including expected price and performance figures. We call it the Lincoln MK Coupe.

Like the rest of the Lincoln lineup, the MK Coupe will keep those awfully pretty lines intact. The butterfly grille gets a sleeker makeover paired with its new two door persona, and the rear end uses Lincoln's signature single light bar feature from one end to the other.

Other highlights include LED light bars on the front, a more aggressive fascia, high-spoke wheels, and dual exhaust tips. All this would be available on a top of the line performance variant.

Under the hood, Lincoln would likely put to use a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 pushing out 460 horsepower in top performance spec (rendered here). Power would be sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual, or a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters.

60 mph would be managed somewhere between 4.7S and 5.0S.

In performance alone, the Lincoln MK Coupe (in performance spec) would be in the same range as the Lexus RC F and BMW M4. Bother produce near 450 horsepower and both can reach 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds.

In order to succeed, the MK Coupe would need to undercut the $62,000 BMW M4. With a starting price of $59,000, the Lincoln coupe would leave just enough meat on the bone for someone comparing the two.

A less performance-oriented version of the MK Coupe could hypothetically have a starting price of $38,000-$40,000 with a less powerful V6, tamer exterior cues and fewer options.
