Toyota Century: Japan’s Luxury Car

The Toyota Century is one of the and most exclusive Japanese on the market, and has been since its in Japan in 1967. When it came out, its competition was the President, and both cars are the reason for the evolution of Japanese cars we see on the road today, now with the higher-end Mercedes BMW, and Jaguar models.

it has been 46 years since its amazingly, the vehicle’s design has only one major update, was in 1997. The Century received its in commeration to the 100th birthday of Toyoda, the original founder of Motor Co. and recognized as one of Japan’s inventors.

The first generation Toyota lasted an astounding 30 years, 1967 all the way through 1997. different V8 engines were for the first-generation model, a 3.0 liter, a 3.4 liter, and ending with a 4.0 in the latter years. The first-generation was in a standard- and an extended-wheelbase model, and is used as a limo for its owners, driven by a chauffeur.

When the second generation Century went on sale in it came along with a major makeover to the interior and adding new features and more styling. Perhaps the biggest though was the engine, as it now came a twelve-cylinder engine specifically for the car. The Toyota Century’s V12 is as the 1GZ-FE, and is too this day, the only production twelve-cylinder produced by Toyota Motor Co.

The is where we start to realize this car to meant to have a by the amount of technology put into the seat. They feature reclining seats with coolers, and massagers at just every location on the seat and The rear seats are also with wool instead of because it provides more and less noise when around.

Aside from the two different of the car, there is also a model made only for use by members and executives of the Imperial of Japan, known as the Toyota Royal. Only four of are known to exist, and they are all in use by the House. Although not much is about the technology that is put in the Century Royal, they likely have bulletproof run-flat tires, and heavy or even bombproof plating, like the Cadillac used to the President of the United States.

Because the Toyota Century is in limited quantities every and only produced in Japan, it is unlikely you would see one for sale In fact, it would be quite to even see one anywhere in the world of Japan. The current price tag for a new one in is approximately $100,000, and even this is less than the LS600h price tag of $125,000, it is as higher class because of its and exclusiveness.
