On a night known for extravagant fashion, Lincoln Motor Co. flaunted its most over-the-top vehicle.
Tennis star and Lincoln brand ambassador Serena Williams arrived at the 2019 Met Gala in New York last week in a Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition.
The luxury brand is making just 80 suicide-door Continentals for the 2019 model year, in honor of the nameplate's 80th anniversary. It also plans to build a "limited" number of 2020s.
The special-edition Continentals have a six-figure price tag and a 6-inch longer wheelbase to accommodate their rear-hinged doors — and make it easier to exit in a gown with a large train, such as the yellow-and-pink Atelier Versace piece Williams wore.
