Earlier this year the all-new Lincoln Continental was introduced to the world. We weren’t sure what to expect from a name that many had come to grow and fall in love with. Months later the market and the people have spoken. The Continental is an absolute smash hit!
Last week I had the opportunity to take a trip to Miami to experience the new Lincoln Continental for myself. The event was attend by media, influencers, specially invited guests and speakers. The day kicked off with a chauffeured ride to the luxurious Mandarin Hotel in Miami’s beautiful Brickell Key where we had the opportunity to reconnect with familiar faces and introduce ourselves to some new ones.
Lincoln Motor Company’s Global Director Marketing Sales and Services, Robert Parker kicked things off with an overview of the brand and what Lincoln is doing to position itself with international buyers.
After the guest speeches we sat down to a specially prepared 4-course meal that was absolutely delicious and appealed to all the senses. With our stomachs and taste buds satisfied, we were now ready for the in-car experience in the all-new Continental.
Each of us got the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the continental enroute to our next destination, Little River Studios for a hands-on photography experience with famed photog Shayna Batya.
The adaptive cruise control and intuitive navigation system made driving through the high traffic of Miami effortless. The serene interior and the 19-speaker Revel audio system makes you wish that your drive was just a bit longer.
No detail or expense was spared in delivering the best product possible. Other features of the car include the E-Latch door handle, perfect seat positioning, SYNC technology and a very capable 3.0 GTDI V6 engine.
As the day wound down and we were saying our goodbyes, we all new that we had just been a part of something truly amazing. We were the first to get behind the wheel of not only a game-changer, but something that is very necessary in the car market. The 2017 Continental is a statement and a lifeline to car buyers drowning in a sea of sameness.
Thank you Lincoln Motor Company for an awesome experience in Miami.
