    Segment Transcript


    I'm Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA. Lincoln Aviator brand manager Jenn Engel says Lincoln partnered with Shinola to create a one of a kind Aviator. Engel: "Our designers went into the Shinola showroom and they were inspired by this brand's unique timepieces and leather goods and even bicycles and they took that influence to create a very special vehicle. We're talking copper accents, the exterior has this mother of pearl hue. There is a stripe going down our seats which was inspired by the Shinola duffle bag. It's really really just a beautiful masterpiece, I encourage everyone to just go online and type in Aviator and Shinola and you can see images of this beautiful vehicle." Only one of the special Lincoln Aviators with the Shinola-inspired aspects has been produced and it’s not for sale. Engel says they will be taking it to Auto Shows.  With today's Auto News, I'm Laura Reynolds.
