It’s a different take that taps into our love of slammed classics

A digital artist took to Instagram to showcase his rendering of a 10th-generation Lincoln Continental. Abimelec Arellano, who goes by the @abimelecdesign handle on Instagram, created a slammed Continental that features vintage styling twists and all the bells and whistles of a modified luxury sedan.

Arellano’s rendering captures the Continental in a more unique design light compared to the model that Lincoln offered from 2017 to 2020. Early-generation versions of the Continental were treated to all sorts of slammed modifications, and the artist used that tuning method to great effect in his work. The lowered orientation looks good sitting on a set of steelie wheels from Detroit Steel Wheel.

The satin black paint finish on the exterior, along with the chrome trim, gives the Continental a sleek shine. Meanwhile, the interior is awash in custom purple leather while the dark oak wood inserts are present to add some class.

The artist didn’t mention the trim of his rendered Continental, but assuming it’s the top-of-the-line Black Label trim, the sedan would be powered by a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine that produces 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

A six-speed automatic transmission comes standard and sends power to the two front wheels. It takes 5.8 seconds for the Continental 2.7 Black Label to sprint from 0 to 60 mph and 14.5 seconds to hit a quarter-mile. The sedan’s top speed maxes out at an electronically limited 155 mph.

Despite the sedan sharing its underpinnings with the underwhelming Ford Fusion, Arellano’s take on the Continental helps bring some shine back to its name.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
