Mclaren Revives Hot Rod Lincoln

The Lincoln LS is getting a high-performance tune-up thanks to McLaren
Performance Technologies, the Detroit-based engineering operations that
has created a variety of niche muscle cars over the years. Niche products
like this are "where the market is heading," declared McLaren president
Steve Rossi. And his firm hopes to hitch its fate to Lincoln's, a match
that may serve both well since the Ford luxury division is desperately
seeking to upgrade its image. "We're trying to take the Lincoln brand and
move it a bit more into the left lane," said Rossi, adding that other
performance packages are in development for such Lincoln models as the new
Aviator sport-ute. The McLaren LS will be offered in three versions. A
base appearance package, priced at approximately $43,000, will come in
roughly $6000 over a comparable factory LS. Level two will
performance-tune the suspension and bolt a twin-intercooled supercharger
onto the basic Lincoln 3.9-liter V-8. Pumping 350 hp through its automatic
transmission - 100 more than stock - it will go for $49,750. The top-level
model will add a high-torque six-speed manual transmission and add another
$6000 to the price tag. Look for the McLaren LS to appear at roughly 100
Lincoln dealerships later this year. Sales are forecast at 500 units

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
