In this dreary world of crossover-led cars chasing ever broadening consumer tastes allied to all-the-more restrictive consumption and emission regulations, there's not much - in the grand scheme of things - for auto enthusiasts to get excited about. Crossovers often look wild but end up being nothing more than bland appliances, SUVs are now festooned with performance division badges and the current crop of hyperbrids are so rare and expensive that - despite rampant internet coverage - the chances of seeing one are scant at best, let alone ever owning one.
The goal-posts are always moving and these days even same-class protagonists are so different that it's hard to come up with a good ol' fashioned Internal Combustion shoot-out. Well, there's actually quite a match-up sitting at the top end of the (admittedly still very rarefied) market, and these cars are distinct and clear rivals.
So, saddle up, holster those six shooters and get ready for guns blazing in the Super Sport GT...

Lincoln has taken the wraps off the Continental concept ahead of a public debut set for later this week in New York.
The legendary "Continental" nameplate is back on a brand new concept that previews next year's production model of a luxurious full-size sedan which surprisingly won't have the split-wing grille as the concept adopts a fresh chrome layout flanked by sleek LED matrix headlights featuring laser-assist high-beams.
