Well fan-boys, here's your very first shot of the new Ford D3-platformed luxury sedan for the brand that emancipated the slaves โ€” the 2009 Lincoln MKS โ€” caught on the set of the next Batman film, completely without any form of body armor or fascia obscura. Look at it like these shots taken by tipster and Jalopnik reader Jarrett are the Bruce Wayne to these spy shots from earlier this summer. As far as what we know, well, we already knew the MKS would be the first to receive the new twin-turbo, 3.5-liter V6 (with an expected top level of 380 horses) coming out from the engineering and development team of the Dearborn-based automaker, we weren't real certain we'd like the look. Well, from this angle you can color us pleasantly surprised. The full shot after the jump. UPDATE: More shots sent in from tipster Jarrett! Check out that rear end with the dual pipes...
