Check Out This Sweet Terminator Powered Lincoln!

By -

With the heart of a Terminator, this Mark VIII sleeper can keep up with the latest crop of supercars.

Pearl colored Lincoln Mark VIIIs might be a common sight in Florida retirement communities, but this car is anything but a Sunday driver. With a highly modified Terminator motor, this Lincoln has an eye-watering 735 horsepower. You’re looking at the definition of a sleeper.

Keen eyes would notice the very well crafted Terminator style front bumper, but otherwise the car’s appearance leaves things fairly stock. Rims (which are wrapped in tires that look wholly inadequate to handle 735 horsepower) are American Mag style, and have Cobra brake calipers behind them. Those items are the only other visual signal that something special might be under the hood.

And that’s where the real fun is. Sourced from the same engine block you’d find in an ’03 or ’04 Termi, it’s further enhanced by a big bore Kenne Bell supercharger. Power is sent through a race-built automatic transmission. With the extensive work to dress up the engine in various polish parts, a partial wire tuck took place as well.

LSC means “Luxury Super Coupe,” and the L was kept intact during the build, with all stock creature comforts still in place. Air-ride suspension, automatic transmission, and a high-end audio system mean this Mark VIII is as much luxury as it is super coupe.

Advertised at a “no haggle” $25,000, it seems like a heck of a lot of car to us.
