Never heard of this car. RH drive for Japan only market. The year is unclear but it looks like a copy of a 560SEL in the front only. . Thanks for the review of something real exotic Doug. You don't understand engineering at all which is frustrating for an engineer. You do get some great cars to review and that is not easy I guess. Not sure what your Doug Score is all about. What are we evaluating, how super duper this car is?

these can be imported and on road for about $15k in Australia. I'd love to have this as an uber car or limo service that charged heaps for the quirky experience, reviews could be recorded on the tape as they get a back massage! thinking of getting one --> here's a link Aussies... www.j-spec.com.au/featured/1998-Toyota-Century-V12-18174.html

The 1990 Olds 98 Touring Sedan had both an analog and digital tachometer. Also had seats that adjusted about 25 ways that would shame this silly thing and even Audi's of today.

Fun fact. The V12 engine ran 2 separate ECU’s. One for the front 6 cylinders and one for the back. With double of every sensor as a redundancy so the car could still run on 6 cylinders in an emergency

The fact that they didn't export this is proof that nationalist views are utterly retarded. "We made this, it's our nationalist pride" bullshit, aaand let's completely ignore the fact that had they exported this car it would be a national pride point whenever other countries would've used it. And i know they would've because it's really well made. This could've put Toyota in the same bracket with Mercedes and BMW's upper echelon in the European market, and i'm 100% sure that if they put it in US, this would've been bought by anyone from wealthy people to more pocketed car enthusiasts considering the engine platform and the modding potential. Ah, people are just plain stupid.

When is the next recall of this vehicle? After all a Toyota without a monthly recall is not a Toyota. By the ways a lot of the features were copied from European cars but not one expects anything else from Toyota. Marketing and reverse engineering are the things they excel at. Syonara.

I am surprised you mentioned the reliability as if it could be anything else but the most reliable car in the world. To start with everyone knows Toyota is like the most reliable brand, individual models trades blows with Honda sometimes, sometimes some rare random car comes into play (I think Skoda Yeti somehow was top 5 in EU), but generally over long period of time Toyota is one of the most reliable. Lexus is little step further, lower volume cars, but even more reliable, just a little bit, but certainly more QA goes into them and that results into fewer issues. And in line-up Century is not even considered Toyota... It goes like Toyota>Lexus>Century in terms of ultimate quality and Century is above Lexus as a separate brand, so expectation is nothing else but the best quality and reliability possible. In short nobody would expect anything else, but ultimate reliability and that is what you get.
