Lincoln has further elevated the personally-crafted luxury experience with the introduction of its exclusive Presidential line in the Middle East.
Presidential is the ultimate expression of the Lincoln brand, incorporating the finest materials from around the globe into a refined and exclusive collection of carefully curated themes for each model in Lincoln’s range.
Lincoln’s Presidential Line makes its debut at this week’s 2017 Dubai International Motor Show on the Lincoln stand in Sheikh Saeed Hall.
“We’re extremely proud to bring the Presidential line to the region. We know our Middle East customer has a desire for self-expression and a keen eye for attention to detail, and Presidential line makes this attainable for shoppers across the showroom floor,” said Alex Schaeffer, director for Lincoln Middle East.
There are nine themes in total, inspired by love of the arts, travel, fine food, culture, architecture and fashion, which comprise the 2018 collection. These curated designer themes galvanise premium leathers, appliques, wheels and paints to attract those customers looking for something unique.
Less than one per cent of rawhides worldwide meet the stringent softness and durability requirements for becoming Venetian leather, making it a truly exclusive Lincoln Presidential offering.
Produced to reveal the natural characteristics of the hide, unique in its lightly-finished, fine-grained texture, Presidential customers will find the exquisite Venetian leather on the seating surfaces, centre console armrest and door armrests.
A specially selected palette of custom, multi-finish, premium paints is designed to enhance the exterior contours and complement the interior beauty of Lincoln Presidential vehicles.
Among them are several ChromaFlair and SpectraFlair paints, which exhibit a wide range of hues depending on the viewing perspective and the angle of the light. As a result, the paint appears to dance.
The rich texture of enchanting woods makes a lasting impression. Ziricote, a heavily grained wood from South America, has long inspired artisans of furniture, musical instruments and yachts.
The ethereal, sparkling effect of Argento wood is achieved by infusing metallic dust between its layers, while exclusive, high-end Venetian leather, Alcantara materials from Milan, provide additional luxury elements for Lincoln clients.
The nine themes available include:
