Toyota Century looks like the Japanese Rolls-Royce, so the price of this model is in line with its image.
The car, owned mainly by people driving in the back seat while the chauffeur is in the driver’s seat, is difficult to link with a brand such as Toyota, which is known for the mass production of affordable medium and low class passenger cars.
However, Century is not an ordinary Toyota. This model is conceived as a Roland-Royce limo with and similar cars. At the Tokyo auto show in 2017, a new generation of super-luxury limousine Century arrived, inheriting its predecessor, which had been producing as early as 21 years in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Recently, the sale of this car began in Japan at a price of 19.6 million yen, which is about $ 180,000
Unlike Toyota’s bestseller models, such as Corolla, Camry or RAV4, which are sold every year in hundreds of thousands of units, the Japanese manufacturer plans to deliver only 50 pieces of Century cars per month on the domestic market.
The new generation of this model is even more luxurious and spacious than his predecessor.
The cabin is, among other things, equipped with an audio system with 20 speakers distributed throughout the vehicle, as well as an electro-spray curtain that gives passengers additional privacy while driving.
Sound insulation is at its highest level, and driving vibrations are minimized.The car also has electronically controlled air suspension that guarantees passengers comfort
Unlike the predecessor that had the V12 engine, the new Toyota Century uses a hybrid drive system consisting of a 5.0 liter petrol V8 and an electric motor of a combined combined power of 425 hp.The V8 cylinder petrol engine delivers 375 hp and 510 Nm, while the electric unit has 221 hp and 300 Nm.
