Leaked Lincoln D3 Photos

LeftLane News has some leaked photos of Lincoln's latest concept car. This car is probably based on the Volvo S80/Ford 500/Freestyle "D3" platform, and is expected to ship with the new 3.5L V6 and probably AWD. It also may get the Yamaha/Volvo 60 degree 4.4L V8.

What jumped out at me was the grille design--notice that it is the vertical slat design of the current Lincolns, not the chromed grate of the Aviator concept. I personally like the current design much better than the retro Aviator face, which I find too bland and too "old-timer". Maybe Ford's new North American VP, Mark Fields, has shaken some sense into the Lincoln stylists?

Also note the Buick-like porthole and rear quarter line (in this photo, anyway).
