Toyota’s limousine is even posher a Lexus.

It’s actually the Century Royal, a monumental built for the Japanese Imperial

Stretching more than six weighing about three and powered by a 5.0-litre V12, it any other car coming out of Toyota

Well, it would do, if it came out of City, but apparently it’s under contract by the Kanto Works subsidiary in Shizuoka. itself isn’t perhaps set up for of less than a kazillion and the Royal production total at approximately four.

The Century dwarfs other Toyotas and other sedans. Motorcade makes it look like a car that, due to a computer glitch, has built on a different scale to else.

Its bonnet and boot about halfway up everyone windscreens.

Features include doors at the rear and granite so that the royal feet can in and out on a solid bit of igneous rock than vulgar man-made

The head-lining is rice paper inset lights to give the or at least ambience, of a Japanese

The Toyota Century Royal was to the Emperor in 2006, replacing rather ancient Nissan Royals.

Although a very edition, the imperial jalopy is on the standard Century, which the top car from Toyota, hard to though that might be.

The was first seen in 1967 when it received its one and only (thus far) 30 years it was cleverly restyled to look exactly the same.

The original had a V8 and was shaped a bit like a Russian of a 1964 Lincoln.

The slightly bodywork of 1997 cloaked extra cylinders and a couple of litres.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of even the standard Century above any Lexus, though in the Japanese domestic market everything is just a little bit

Despite an unlimited colour most Centurys are painted with doilies on the seats, lace curtains and a gloved-and-capped doing the honours for some bizzoid or government hack in the

By some reports, the Century is favoured by the Yakuza criminal That makes sense, as work closely with the at times.

The Century is priced the Lexus line-up, with the idiosyncratic marketing line it is the sort of product »acquired by hard work in a plain but suit».

Most publicity to be about quietness and the whole package rides on air suspension gives »a calmness of a unequalled in the world».

A rare promotional video says, essence of the Century’s hospitality is by the rear seats».

These leaning, tilting, rear pews are linked to the When they are opened of course), the seats return to standard position for easy and egress.

Oddly, there’s a in the front passenger seat so the in the back can stretch his legs further.

Toyota sells a few hundred Centurys a year by one report) but the V12 is available in no other Weird or what?

And if one car in this odd is not enough, Nissan also the V8-powered President from the while Mitsubishi produced the which looked like a knock-off of a Russian copy of a Lincoln.

The Nissan died of causes last year, the went front-wheel-drive with styling in the 1980s, then was behind the shed and put out of everyone misery in 1999.

The Century survives.

The TRUENO SPRINTER BY BUNTA HANDS DOWN is the BEST TOYOTA, for its renowned success at the S15 and RX7s in drift competitions the 20 plus years of age in the car itself.

My friend owns a Century (the latest, V12 and having taken a couple of in the back seat, I can unequivocably with all the marketing hype the rear seating. Exquisit for a late 90s car.

He then later ripped a mad down a drag strip ANDRA approved track, anyone gets up in arms).

before or since have i such luxury act so childishly.

the Century only features an diff, so said skid was a single legger.

As for the engine well i have seen the transplanted into a couple of vehicles, and in true toyota it is over-engineered to the nth degree. A seriously engine with brute waiting to be unleashed. tamed to grace.

If complain of the COMMODORE V6 Gasket like it’s going to at high revs, what in hell is there that a V12 engine will be as reliable?
