Exclamation Spotted something strange in Delhi

Hi guys..

On my way back home from a friend's place, a strange looking car came about near the Moolchand Hospital Flyover (my Delhi friends would be knowing about it)..

Let me describe it:

It was BIG and i mean.. B-I-G !.. almost a Limo... i dont know what to call it but looked like a mix n match of a big SUV and a BIG sedan.. it was the Biggest car i have ever seen in my life..and the W-I-D-E-S-T of them all.. it was maroon in colour.. as i was a fair bit distance away from it i could only read "LINCOLN" or was it LINCON (?!).. i am not sure...

pardon my ignorance, but i did even know a car called Lincon existed.. if anyone having more info on this monster car (together with some pics).. i will appreciate...

Till then.. let me dream about that big car i saw today....

if you saw "LINCOLN" and you say it was a massive SUV then it has to be the Navigator ..

Infiniti QX 45 is bigger than the Navigator and the escalade (in the luxury SUV segment )...

Default Navigator and Avaitor

Navogator is the biggest of Lincoln SUV's. You cant beat the luxury in Navi. Aviator was launched as a Mid-size SUV to compete with Lexus RX-300. BMW joined them with X3

Default Qx 45

Infiniti QX-45 is one hell of a SUV. I drove it for 6 months. It got sport tuned exaust and you should hear that roaring sound. looks like a beast on the road.

On the other hand its not a big SUV. It was designed to be driven like a sports car. The standard wheels are 19" (Mag/Alloy). Also when you turn on the ignition the whole console (Speedometer/Tachometer/steering) zooms out according to your memory settings. Its like a seperate unit which gets adjusted according to the memory settings for particular driver. One the key is out of ignition the console goes back to the original position. I love that part.

Navigator/Ford Expedition/Suburban are bigger than FX-45.
