If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Manual-swapped S6 Avant

This looks like it would be so much fun until something breaks.

Very Rare

This car is in great condition. The 4.2 V8 makes great power and low-end torque, and the 6-speed transmission with RS4-style clutch and short shifter really wakes it up. This combination was available overseas but not in the US! The lowered suspension is tight with responsive speed-sensitive steering. The comfortable, supportive seats are all heated. Comes with an Alcantara headliner!

Installed on the car are OEM S6 Avus wheels with 10mm spacers and General Altimax Arctic snow tires with 8/32" remaining. Also included in the sale are OEM RS4 wheels with high-performance all-season tires with 5/32"-8/32" tread remaining.

This car is fantastic in all weather!
