Have to say that's the first Lincoln I've seen for quite some time that I actually like the styling of.

Very nice car! check out the 22" rims and 405mm brake rotors. Impressive interior. I guess this would be in the RR/Bentley price category?

here is a bit more info on its stereo:

MUSIC TO DRIVERS' EARS: LINCOLN TO BE THE FIRST WITH THX CERTIFIED PREMIUM CAR AUDIO SYSTEMS


2002 LA Auto Show


LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3, 2002 Lincoln will be the first auto maker to offer Lucasfilm THX certified premium car audio systems, significantly advancing car audio the same way that THX has revolutionized sound in commercial theatres, home theatres and multimedia products, Lincoln Mercury President Brian Kelley announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show today.


Under this arrangement, Lucasfilm THX will ensure that high-performance audio systems in Lincoln vehicles meet the exacting sound quality and performance standards of its new THX Ultra Premium Car Audio program, beginning with the 2003 Lincoln LS, which will be introduced in late 2002. In addition, THX and Lincoln have collaborated on a concept sound system for the Lincoln Blackwood to showcase the potential for in-car multi-channel surround sound, which can be seen and heard at the THX booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 8 -11.


The THX legacy is one of ensuring that people enjoy the sound and images of entertainment the way the creators intended, said Gordon Radley, President of Lucasfilm Ltd. We previously tackled that challenge in the theater, in the home and in multimedia, and we intend to do the same for the automobile, where so many of us spend so much of our time. Were especially pleased to have Lincoln be the first to introduce this new program into the market.


The audio systems are designed to provide outstanding performance by improving imaging and timbral balance for all seating positions and road conditions. Every system will contain customized multi-channel equalization and processing to suit the chosen speaker placement and cabin acoustics of the particular Lincoln vehicle.


Lincolns unique relationship with THX will help us deliver superior sound quality with total flexibility to optimize speakers, amplifiers and electronics to the listening environment of individual vehicles, said Lincoln Mercury Product Development Director Al Kammerer. Our goal is for music connoisseurs to be able to enjoy the best sound quality possible in a luxury vehicle.


THX has long offered its consulting services and certification to major theatres and makers of home systems, but the relationship with Lincoln is the companys first effort in the automotive industry. The new THX Ultra Premium Car Audio program defines the performance benchmarks necessary to achieve state-of-the-art sound quality in an automobile. THX certification considers the entire sound system including the electronics, loudspeakers and cabin acoustics.


The program starts at the vehicle concept phase where Lincoln and THX work together to develop the system. Prior to production, the sound system for each Lincoln model undergoes a stringent evaluation by THX to complete the certification process.

Sophisticated luxury customers know that THX-certified systems make a huge difference in sound quality, said Mike Crowley, Lincoln Group Brand Manager. This collaboration with THX will help Lincoln continue to differentiate itself as a premium brand.

At www.drive.com.au there is an article on the Lincoln but they also claim in this particular article that Volvo is NOT a part of P.A.G. Just for the record Volvo IS a part of the P.A.G.
