2013 Lincoln MKZ Giant, Retractable Glass Roof (video)
Bathing your self in the sun’s rays while driving a convertible usually comes at the expensive of tampered hairdos, not to mention a profile line that isn’t nearly as appealing as the car’s hardtop counterpart.
Lincoln, which debuted their 2013 MK concept at the Detroit Auto show, today released a high rez photo and video detailing the car’s retractactable glass top. Notice we didn’t say sunroof or moonroof? That’s because this is so much more, opening as deep as two-feet and two and a half feet wide, it shouldn’t be problem catching a tan in this car while jetting down the Pacific Coast Highway. That said, the roof’s glass top has been rated to 100spf, ensuring that no sunburns or skin damage occurs without the driver or passengers permission.
According to Lincoln the more than 4-foot square roof retracts in under 10-seconds. Pretty speedy for a piece of glass that is 5mm thick, more than 4 feet long and 3.7 feet wide for a total of 15.2 square feet – one of the largest retractable glass roofs on the market. The roof automatically motors forward 8-inches at speeds over 40mph to reduce wind noise.
