Lincoln Creates LS Concept for Los Angeles International Auto Show
    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7 -Six months after launching the all-new
Lincoln LS luxury sports sedan, the designers at Lincoln are back at it with
the 2000 LS Concept vehicle.  The LS Concept will be on display at the Los
Angeles International Auto Show from Jan. 7 through 15 at the Lincoln product
display. 

    Building on the same platform that helped LS receive Motor Trend's coveted
Car of the Year award, Lincoln designers added some new design features to LS,
giving it a sportier look.  The new features include projector headlamps, dark
tinted windows, 18-inch wheels, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes and a rear deck
extension.

    "Since the launch in June, Lincoln LS has been popular with customers and
dealers alike, so we asked our designers to see what type of aftermarket
products they could fit to LS," said Mark Hutchins, Lincoln Mercury president.

    Lincoln Mercury, based in Irvine, Calif., markets the full line of Lincoln
and Mercury vehicles.  The Lincoln line includes Town Car, Navigator,
Continental and LS.  The Mercury product line includes Cougar, Sable, Grand
Marquis, Mountaineer, Villager and Mystique.
