The company only manufactured 80 revamped models of its flagship sedan – officially called 80th Anniversary Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition – an homage to the 1939 original with iconic center-opening “suicide” doors.

The price tag for one of the vehicles was more than $110,000 00 – making it the most expensive Lincoln ever sold. All 80 were sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

It’s powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 400 horsepower and a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system.

“This is the perfect example of form and function,” Lincoln President Joy Falotico told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo during an interview last month. “It has everything that a modern-day luxury buyer would need in their vehicle.”

After the success of this year’s launch, the brand expects to release a 2020 version of the car as well.
