2010 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost does quarter-mile in 14 seconds flat

In attempt to prove to us that fuel-efficient cars can be fun, the folks over at Edmunds decided to take the new 2010 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost to a drag strip in Milan, Michigan. After a couple of runs, the MKS EcoBoost kept returning a quarter-mile run in 14 seconds at 104 mph.

To put those figures in perspective, the 2006 Shelby GT-H Mustang ran a 13.9 at 101.1 mph while the 2010 Mustang GT ran it in the mid-13s.

The 2010 Lincoln MKS is powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 twin-turbocharged, direct-injected engine making 355-hp with a peak torque of 350 lb-ft. Fuel-economy is estimated at 17/24 mpg (city/highway).
