Hello All You Luxury Lovers!
I am ecstatic to tell you guys all about a totally EPIC Lincoln Motor Company event that I attended last week. It was held at the fabulous Mandarin Oriental Miami & the quaint, yet chic, Little River Studios! I absolutely loved everything about that day, but there were two things that really stood out the most. For starters, getting picked up and chauffeured to the event in a brand new 2017 Lincoln Continental by my very own personal driver I might add, and best of all, actually having the opportunity to take that beauty for a spin! Can you say OMGGG?!?!?! Talk about feeling fancy!
Let’s pause this thing for a moment while I give a special shout out to my driver! He was so cool and laid back; he totally put the COOL icing on the already super COOL cake! #MyDriverIsCoolerThanYours!
On the way to Miami I had the chance to listen to the infamous Revel Audio System. I have yet to come across a system that can compare to the amazingly crisp and clear sound that oozes from these speakers. I am absolutely sure this is due to the 19 expertly placed speakers in the system, not to mention, three different listening modes. The Continental lets you hear your music in breathtaking, audiophile quality, and with precision-milled speaker covers seamlessly integrated into the doors, Lincoln has ensured even the design hits all the right notes.
In addition to the sweet sounds, I must say that it felt really nice to relax in a reclining rear seat as we made the 1.5 hour journey. The power lumbar support, heating and cooling capabilities and ample leg room made it easy to feel like I was in the comfort of my own living room. #ThatsContinental!
After all of the Miami influencers arrived at the lavish Mandarin Oriental Azul Restaurant, the charming Liliam Lopez, co-founder of South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SFLHCC) spoke briefly about her wonderful experience with the Lincoln brand. #RockOnSister! Shortly after, we ate a delicious and very memorable lunch! Everything from the Seared Tuna to the Honey Miso Charred Seabass melted in my mouth and left me wanting more. To top off the extremely wonderful meal, during lunch, Robert Lowe – General Manager of the Mandarin Oriental and Robert Parker – Lincoln’s Global Director Marketing Sales and Service provided us with tons of Continental insider information, which made the experience even more incredible.
After lunch, it was our time to drive the luxe beauty. I could feel the vehicle and I becoming one, while gliding through the streets of Miami! It is unbelievable! I couldn’t help but notice all the attention the vehicle received as Melanie and I made our way to the next destination! I have to admit I felt like a total #BOSS! I mean who wouldn’t in a 2017 Continental right?!?!?!? Another thing I couldn’t help but notice was the comfort level of the 30-Way Perfect Position Seats. These seats are superior in every way! The range of movement, including independent thigh extenders can easily be adjusted to your own uniquely comfortable position. #ThatsContinental!!
Once we arrived at Little River Studios, I couldn’t contain my excitement! Everything about this hidden gem was on point. While there, we spent time with local photographer, Shayna Batya, learning about lighting and perfect timing. Afterwards we were able to capture really cool shots of the entire studio.
We learned tons from Shayna, and captured some pretty cool moments on camera, Mike Celentino, Chief Program Engineer for the Lincoln Continental was on site to give us a comprehensive overview of the vehicles innovative technology. One thing that really caught my attention was the “no slam” doors. This feature is extremely intriguing to say the least! The doors open with the slightest pull and close with a small push. I have never known a car door not to slam. As I listened to him, all I could think was, “Where were these when I used to steal my mom’s car!?!?!? That sure would have saved me a lot of punishment!” LOL!

Once all of the festivities were over, it was time to head home. This was a bittersweet moment. Bitter, because I wasn’t ready for the day to end and sweet, because I wanted more time in the luxe beauty. Around the halfway mark, I was so comfortable that I drifted off to sleep and didn’t awake until we were about five minutes away from the final destination (my house).
This entire experience was simply amazing! I must say that every time I hang out with my Lincoln friends and family I always feel fabulously fancy! I am sure you guys already know that the Lincoln Brand is something special!
Lincoln friends and family…Thank you so much for yet another EPIC experience!!!
OK Sassy Peeps!
I must say the starting price of $44,560.00 for a car of this magnitude is incredible. The sound system and the 30-way seats alone are worth that and much more. In my opinion it is totally worth every penny!
Are you lovin the 2017 Lincoln Continental as much as I am? If so, what do you love about it and why? Also, what do you think about this price point for this much car? Inquiring minds would like to know!!!!
