1. Lincoln Zephyr V12

In the mid-30s, Ford wanted to catch up with Chrysler as America’s most advanced car manufacturer. That is why they decided to invest in a new line of upscale models for Lincoln with a V12 engine. They named it the Zephyr, and it was a modern, aerodynamically efficient and fast car that attracted many buyers.

They introduced it in 1936 and sold it until 1942. The Zephyr wasn’t the top of the line Lincoln since it was smaller than the K-Series models. But it featured extremely advanced Art Deco styling, a modern interior and a smaller V12 engine that delivered 110 HP.
