The 2013 Lincoln MKZ concept debuted at the Detroit Auto Show and ahead of its official unveil next week at the New York Auto show, Lincoln has released a video that shows us the car’s panoramic glass roof in action for the first time.

The idea is simple: to get the best of a convertible while retaining the convenience of a full roof. This is the first step in a series of improvements that Lincoln is undergoing to re-introduce the brand as a unique luxury marque.

When fully open the roof sports an opening that is two-feet deep and two and a half feet wide, offering the largest glass roof opening on the market today.

The roof is rated at SPF 100 to avoid passengers being sunburned, and reinforced with a aluminum and boron steel frame that is integrated into the car’s architecture to deal with rollovers and chassis contortion.

The roof will debut on the MKZ at the New York Auto Show next week, probably as an expensive option though likely cheaper than a proper convertible.

Watch the panoramic roof in action in the video below.

One of the best features on the MKZ. If you ever open it in front of a busy street I am sure a lot of necks will be broken that day.

haha I bet, it's unlike anything else in the industry. Lincoln has done a good job at making the MKZ a car that stands out from the rest

I feel as if Lincoln has really done everything they can to make the MKZ stand out from the others but I don't think it's these features that are making them sell.

the design is controversial.

and the quality control issues seem to drag the model down a tad bit.
It is, design is something that you can't say is ugly, it's just ugly to you, it's something that is opinion based. While the MKZ is beautiful to some, it's ugly to others, like me.
