The rogue elements at Edmunds Inside Line β€” that means you, former MPHer, Dan "Pummeler of Mustangs" Pund β€” dropped a pair of images of the Lincoln MKR concept, destined for unveiling at the Detroit auto show. A proto sport-coupe, the swank MKR is powered by a 415-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 β€” the engine setup that will provide wherewithal to the company's upcoming MKS flagship, under the name TwinForce. It also introduces a seven-layer dip of design elements Ford's design guru Peter "Balls to the Wall" Horbury says will define the Lincoln brand in the coming years. Dave? Dave's not here, man!
