The Continental Mark V was the flagship vehicle for the Lincoln-Mercury Division of Ford Motor Company between 1977 and 1979. Harkening back to the original Continentals, the Mark V was differentiated from anything else on the road, simply called Continentals, even though they were sold through Lincoln dealerships. To add to the fashionable individuality of the Mark series, four different designers, Bill Blass, Cartier, Givenchy, and Pucci, were tasked with creating their own interpretation of what a ‘Designer Series’ Continental would look like. Each of these cars embodies the style of its designer namesake through the use of exclusive paint schemes and interior appointments, setting these unique offerings apart from the competition. 

This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
