The Lincoln Motor Company pulled out all the stops for this year’s LA Auto Show 2017! The renowned company debuted the newest addition to their car family, The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus (shown above).
Nautilus – the successor to Lincoln MKX – joins the recently unveiled 2019 MKC, the elegant Continental, the all-new Navigator, and the stylish MKZ for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognizable as Lincoln.
Leading up to the debut, Lincoln teamed up with the DREAM Hollywood Hotel & CLEAR to host a number of media cohorts and influencers to enjoy a grand experience of what was to come from the notable vehicle platform.
Departing from DREAM, guests were escorted over to Hollywood’s hotspot, AVENUE to enjoy a special performance from singer-songwriter Marsha Ambrosius.
Marsha performed a plethora of hits that she’s penned in the past while being apart of the chart-topping duo, Floetry, her very own solo material, the song hit song “Butterflies” which was performed and charted by the late Michael Jackson, plus more.
Our very own, Co-Creator & Editor of SFPL, Gabriel Williams was on-hand to experience the lux moments.
During the event, Lincoln & Marsha also introduced the latest feature of Lincoln’s First Listen series that highlights both established and rising artists to premiere an upcoming track from behind the wheel of a Lincoln vehicle.
For Marsha’s feature, they discussed her stellar career and previewed her new song “Just Like Old Times” from inside the 2017 Lincoln Continental.

After the performance, the attendees headed over to one of Hollywood’s top restaurants, TAO for an exclusive dinner.
The menu was complete with some of TAO’s most favorited dishes like Satay Of Chilean Sea Bass, Crispy Rice Tuna, Shrimp Tempura Roll, Glazed Salmon, Filet Mignon “Tokyo Style” and so much more.
The following day, hours before the major unveiling of the Nautilus, media & influencers were able to get an up close and personal look at the brand new vehicle right on the rooftop of the DREAM Hotel along with Lincoln’s President, Kumar Galhotra:
“With the introduction of Nautilus, Lincoln has a strong, distinctive portfolio with a common and recognizable identity,” said Kumar. “We’re excited to add Nautilus to our Lincoln family of luxury SUVs, along with a new name that better reflects the ideas and attitudes of our clients.”
