    Lincoln Aviator & MARK

    I haven't posted any chops here in long time and as I did a quick-couple related ones recently (CD4+ platform)...

    Aviator replaces the MKT

    900x600

    MARK replaces the MKS

    800x400

    First one is too close to MKX. I like the front of the second, but it clearly needs better body lines on the side.

    Lincoln needs a flagship RWD sedan so badly. This one looks great!

    ...basically just did 3" increments for the wlbs from regular MKZ on UP
    ...then gave the Continental the same length/width the Navi

    Something more sculpted with a bit more spice to it. What car is the donor?

    ^
    I'm thinking "spice"more for the MKE's, Continentals and esp the LincStangs!
    (+ the MARK might be more in line with Chinese tastes?)
    &
    hint1 what's the closest F-Awd car?
    hint2... I forgot what I was gonna put here...
    I'm too lazy jpgLink

    Yeah that was my guess. The A8 is really boring, even the S8 doesn't look that exciting. That may be it. I'm a Lincoln would Lincoln be better looking on the sides.

    much rougher than I wanted but lost the right copy when almost finished...
    ...the only part of this that was fully intended from before starting,
    is the rear door glass = no little glass or plastic pieces yet 'rolls' down All the way;
    therefore the doors 'cut' into the C-pillar sheetmetal for easy access.


    just found on facebook
