The silhouette of the 1932 Lincoln KB Murphy Roadster stars in the 100% silk tie and scarf we designed for the 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®, an edition celebrating the Lincoln brand's 100th anniversary.
For the collector's tie and scarf from the 71st edition of the world's most prestigious event dedicated to classic cars, we chose to design a pattern focused on enhancing the most distinctive stylistic features of this rare Lincoln model, which, among other things, was awarded at Pebble Beach Concours itself as Best of Show in 2013.
The unmistakable extended outline of the car and the iconic greyhound emblem, which embodies the brand's lifelong values – speed, elegance and nobility – are the key elements of a dynamic pattern that catches the eye with its sense of movement, while the official Lincoln centennial logo and the Limited Edition The Outlierman x Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance® 2022 logo make these creations true collector's accessories.
Handmade by our master Italian craftsmen and dedicated exclusively to judges and collectors in the competition, the tie and scarf are also symbolic of an important partnership that has been renewed every year since 2016 and that, once again on this occasion, honors us with the task of paying tribute to a motor racing legend through our idea of style.
It has been a century since Ford Motor Company rescued the Lincoln Motor Company from bankruptcy, transforming the original military aircraft manufacturer into one of the quintessential luxury car symbols that combined engine power with customized bodies for individual customers.
The Lincoln Model KB, with its 448-inch³ V12 engine, an innovative lower and sturdier chassis as well as an extended hood that made the car simply majestic, was the brand's flagship model throughout 1932 and represents for many enthusiasts the pinnacle of Lincoln's aesthetic and mechanical success.
After officially debuting at the 1932 New York Auto Show, Edsel Ford chose an event under the eyes of an entire nation for the launch to the general public: on May 30, 1932, at the start of the Indianapolis 500, the president of the Ford Motor Company dictated the pace of the race in a sleek, brand-new Lincoln KB Murphy Sport Roadster.
