The Lincoln Mark 9 Coupe's designers began work on the 2001 concept by studying Lincoln's heritage.

"In our exploration, we learned that two Lincoln coupes - the 1940 Continental and the 1956 Continental Mark II - followed by the iconic Continental sedans and convertibles of the 1960s, had tremendous cache and were incredible design statements. Interestingly, they all have design elements that are still appropriate in a modern context." Said Lincoln Design Director Gerry McGovern.

"When a brand has such a strong design heritage as Lincoln, the challenge is to recognize the past without being held back by it," McGovern says. "Between the 1940s and the 1960s, Lincolns were about beautiful proportions, elegant sophistication and restraint. These are qualities we can realize in a modern context without being at all retrospective."

The Lincoln Mark 9 Coupe concept was typically American. Big, bold, imposing and luxurious. The interior featured a symmetrical dash with indirectly illuminated jewel-like instruments, Marlboro red and dark cherry leather two-tone upholstery and polished metal accents.
