Know Everything Interesting Facts about Toyota Century Car !!!

If there is one car that can be termed as the perfect ensemble of simplicity and elegance, still being self-assured yet polite, it has to be the Toyota Century! This is the latest iteration of the Century redesigned for the current model year for the first time since 1997. It is one of the carmaker’s longest-running nameplates to date.


The Century’s engine was specially made for it and didn’t feature in any other Toyota. The bespoke V12 makes way for a new 5.0-liter V8 hybrid. 

It is a 4996cc 48 value V12 with variable valve timing. It produces 280ps and 469 kg.m torque. There was also an LPG option for a brief period, although this had a lower power output. The engine transmits its power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox. 

Interior and Exterior:

Toyota made sure to enlarge the door openings, which only enhances the luxury experience provided by the generous 10-foot wheelbase and the raised ceiling. They have also straightened the slope of the C pillar to draw your attention to the rear. The Century’s occupants can enjoy the benefits of the 100 percent wool upholstery, a step-less, adjustable power leg rest, adjustable rear seats with a massage function and a multi-operational LCD panel located in the central armrest.

Being a chauffeur-driven car, its highlight is the rear seat, which features a massage function and even power footrest that folds out from the front seatback. There are privacy curtains at the back, and the rear ceiling is raised to provide occupants with more headroom.

Even the black exterior is a complicated, seven-layer paint job that uses a particular clear-coat infused with a black pigment. It takes six weeks for a craftsman to carve its phoenix emblem.  

The build quality of the Toyota Century is superb, and attention to detail is everywhere. The first thing to catch my attention was the quality of the paint, which is outstanding: deep and super smooth, you can tell it has been finished by hand. 

The original Toyota Century came into inception in 1967 when it was sold only to some Government officials and company executives. This time too, only 50 of these will be built monthly.
