LincVolt Continental – the American Dream retro hybrid machine

Lincvolt

LincVolt. Take one 2.5 ton, 19.5 foot long Lincoln Continental Mark IV convertible from 1959, drop in a state of the art hybrid power plant. Measure off 100 mpg and zero emissions, enter it for the Automotive X Prize and draft in aging rocker Neil Young to add a little charismatic celebrity sauce. Stir, leave to settle and wait for applause. Somewhere Henry Ford is spinning like an armature. Video.
