Unlike Lincoln’s other products in China, the flagship Lincoln Continental is reported to be imported into the country via the CBU route. A reportĀ speculates that it will be priced at 1 million yuan (around USD 150,000), which is more than double the price of the car in the U.S. The high price tag is attributed to the heavy import taxes levied by the government.

The exterior is nearly identical to the Lincoln Continental Concept, featuring LED lights, chrome surround on the upper grille and a chrome accents on the bumper. The side profile is also similar to the concept, save for the oddly-positioned door handles. At the back, it sports a sleek pair of LED taillamps and dual exhaust pipes.
