Design Challenge: The Lincoln Revamp
 
1. Lamborghini Design Challenge - The Lamborghini brand is in the midst of a renaissance. Hitting us with a 1-2 punch with the amazing Sesto Elemento concept and barely giving us enough time to pick our jaws up from the floor with the equally gorgeous Aventador. But what next... Designers, are you up for the challenge of shaping the next generation of this brand?

2. Lincoln Revamp - Lincoln has been promising a revamp for YEARS! They've whet our appetites with exciting concepts like the MKR and C but none of these ideas have seem to come to fruition, the brand is STILL nothing more than rebadged Ford's. With Mercury now out of the way and the recent hiring of Max Wolff, it seems like the Lincoln star is finally starting to align. So designers, how would you revive the Lincoln brand and make it a viable competitor to Cadillac, BMW, MB, Audi, etc...

I'm a sucker for a Lambo but the fact of the matter is that Lincoln is in more desperate need of a new design language.

hmm ... just found out how hard it is to type when you're jumping up & down ;)

I'm way too prejudiced to vote & haven't done any hand drawing in years
but will be very interested in what happens

LINCOLN, One of Americas most storied brands has been promising some form of design renaissance FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE YEARS now, However all the public keeps getting are rehashed luxury versions of FORD products. They've whet our appetites with exciting concepts like the MKR and C but none of these ideas have seem to come to fruition. With Mercury now out of the way and the recent hiring of Max Wolff, it seems like the Lincoln star is finally starting to align. So designers, how would you revive the Lincoln brand and make it a viable competitor to Cadillac, BMW, MB, Audi, etc...

This is way harder than I thought. There is no way it seems to evolve the current design without making the car look like an obese beluga whale.

ElementW 07-01-2011 06:49 AM

No way indeed! So I'm erasing that look from my mind and starting over with a whole new theme.

Himlar 07-02-2011 12:22 AM

I'm also going in a different direction than they have today, maybe I'll post some progress pics tomorrow. There's a lot of detail design left to be done before deadline ...

AXIS 07-03-2011 05:45 PM

Considering no one has posted an entry yet, I'm pretty sure the deadline will be extended.
