While the world debates getting rid of the plastic shopping bag, Lincoln has made a case for the plastic soda bottle, which makes up part of the composite shell of the MKT concept.
The important part is that the car represents the future styling of Lincoln, a design-based charge to see the brand, mostly relegated to dressed-up Fords, move back to center stage like Cadillac.
The "EcoBoost" engine, which combines a turbo and direct-injection, produces 415 hp and runs on E85. A production version will appear on the upcoming MKS sedan and in Fords to come.(Geoff Robins / AFP / Getty Images)
