Image Hosted by

In January 2006,Lincoln showed the MKS concept car, which they announced would arrive at dealers in spring 2008 as a 2009 model. Now, the latest prototypes of the MKS have been spotted during hot-weather testing in Death Valley.

Despite the disguise on front and rear ends, the production MKS' close relationship to the concept car is evident. Some phony panels at the rear of the roofline disguise its shape but the proportions and even some concept details have emerged intact to this point. The big chrome wheels and door handles in particular keep the classy look.

The MKS' engine will be a 4.4-liter V-8 with 315 horsepower, teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Inside, the car will feature the latest luxury touches including heated and cooled leather seats, a panoramic glass roof, a navigation system, and Bluetooth.
