David Nortonís turbocharged 2002 Lincoln: What a Luxury Performance Car Should Be

Norton admired the lines of Helmuth Schraderís German-inspired design. ďThese chassis have a good wheelbase and rigidity for handling bigger power, and feature a 50/50 weight distribution,Ē Norton explained. Another advantage was that Norton found a one-of-2,331 LS equipped with a Getrag 221 five-speed manual transmission, which reduced the amount of fabrication necessary to fit the TKO600 gearbox behind the turbocharged Terminator DOHC V8 that the car should have had to start with.

I guess I missed this one. Very nice. I always thought that car was a nice looking design. Too bad it was not given the “Hot Rod Lincoln” performance that it should have had. May have been a better seller and actually bit into some BMW sales.

Very nice setup. Killer car!

The LS was a good handling car to begin with.
Lincoln made the mistake of using a POS (3.9)engine instead of the 4.6.
This doomed the car to extinction rather than be a BMW competitor.
Upgrading the suspension and changing the engine makes it a great car.
