The Toyota Century was a V12-powered Japanese ultra-luxury sedan. Today I'm taking you on a tour of the V12-powered Toyota Century, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the Toyota Century. I'm also going to drive the Toyota Century V12 and show you what it's like on the road.

How was this vehicle imported to the US? Is the Century exempt from the 25 year rule?

From Japanese car geek, Hey, the seat is made by cloth(wool base) because of the best for sitting. Feel nice and easy to keep sitting position. Noise reduction effect is also important.

The “chicken” logo is a Chinese Phoenix, a symbol long used to represent monarchies all over East Asia. Since this car was used for the Japanese Emperor, the Chinese Phoenix is used to designate it as a “royal” car. That’s a big part of the marketing and symbolism, “a car fit for a king.”

Doug needs to wrap his mind around what his chauffeur is. Passenger seat is moved by the driver to help your passengers, a 6’4 American, (Doug) is getting in the car you move the seat forward because you’re the Chauffeur. The heated seat controls are at the drivers position for the rear seats so on a chilly day you can warm the seats for your passengers before they get in the car. it’s logical and obvious. I have two Lexus cars I can actually cool the rear seats in my LS 460 from the front position before my friends get into the car and a hot day. And I can move the seats from the front.(even my long gone 1992 LS 400 had this feature) Seems so logical to me. In my 2010 LS 460, it has pre-safe in the rear seats affecting seatbelts per strong tensioners. I suspect the century also has this feature. I know the LS 460 was the first on the market with pre-safe for all passer.

I would have appreciated a comment indicating if this car is even available in left hand drive. The fact Toyota wouldn't even build it screams the intent of it. It is not meant for gaigin.

More than anything else, this car reflects the conservatism of corporate Japan in the 90's. Buyers wanted no flash, no fuss, smoothness, refinement and comfort. It exists to waft the boss/VIP/government official to and from their duties without screaming overt luxury, whilst maintaining a level of patriotism. The engine itself is incredibly refined but doesn't make massive amounts of power....until you strap two turbos onto it.
