The Mercury MC2 concept which was unveiled at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show was a thinly disguised pre-production version of the upcoming Mercury/Ford Cougar coupe - a car which first hit the streets in 1999.

The sharp body lines of the MC2 concept were in line with Ford's design philosophy of the time. The angular styling was even applied to minor elements of the car, like the triangular door handles and rear lights. Overall was a well proportioned, good looking car which was designed to appeal to a broad audience.

One of the Mercury MC2's cleverest features was the dark glass roof, which gave the appearance of a one-piece windscreen/roof/rear window pane.

Tom Scott, director of Ford's advanced design studio at the time said of the concept: "Mercury MC2's dynamic exterior continues the evolution of Ford's New Edge design philosophy. The sheer surfaces and defined curves give the overall impression of strength and purpose. The exterior lines are emphasized by the satin-finish titanium paint and polished nickel-chrome trim details."

The four seat interior of the Mercury MC2 featured some sporty touches like an aluminium shifter, leather wrapped sports steering wheel, and three-point seat belts.
