The Lincoln LS was an interesting type of luxury sedan, one with a distinctly American badge and sporty performance, along with plenty of European influence stemming from the fact that it shared the Ford DEW98 platform – and many other components – with the Jaguar S-Type and the Ford Thunderbird. Now, those seeking a nice, low-mile, ultra-clean example of this cool and unique machine can find precisely that in this 2002 Lincoln LS that’s currently up for grabs at Cars & Bids.
This 2002 Lincoln LS has just 42,600 miles on the clock and lived its entire life with the original owner until 2021. Now, the second owner is looking to sell the car, but it’s certainly still in amazing condition, with nothing more than the typical rock chips marring its Silver Birch Metallic paint. Other notable exterior features including 17-inch chrome aluminum wheels and HID headlights, to boot.
The same goes for the Deep Charcoal interior, which looks essentially brand new save for the typical creases on the leather seat bolsters, as we generally see in pretty much every used car with that type of upholstery. There are loads of amenities to be found, including a sunroof, power mirrors, power front seats, driver’s side memory settings, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, and the Alpine Audiophile sound system.
Power for this 2002 Lincoln LS comes from the naturally-aspirated 3.9L V8, factory rated to produce 280 horsepower and 286 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. In fantastic shape with a clean history, it’s easy to see the appeal of this LS – though it remains to be seen what collectors are willing to shell out for it.
