The luxurious Toyota Century will give cars like the Bentley and the Rolls Royce a run for their money
Big businessmen and multimillionaires all over the world, have one thing in common- their love for luxury cars. Luxury Sedans which includes BMW, Mercedes Benz and Jaguar are rather commonly used by top of the line businessmen, but a Rolls Royce or a Bentley talks about sheer luxury and are owned by top of the line business tycoons, film celebrities and sportsperson.
Now there is another luxury Sedan in the super-cars market which is being compared to a Rolls Royce or a Bentley, but it is only restricted to the Japanese car-market. It is the Toyota Century, a luxury limousine which most of the world doesn’t know exists as it is only sold in Japan. Japan is a country where people mostly see Kei cars on the roads because it is inexpensive as they have lower taxes and licensing costs. It is also easier to park in crowded Japan. So how is it that such a high-end luxury car like Toyota Century is present in Japan? Quite unbelievable, isn’t it?
About the Century:
The Century was first launched in 1967 and in the past 50 years, it has only been updated three times. Its first change took place in 1997. That’s almost 30 years since it was launched. Now, again after 20 years since 1997, its new model change is going to appear in 2018. The new model has been lengthened up to five and a half meters. As it is more taller than before, there is more room for leg space to stretch your legs comfortably. There’s a powered adjustable leg-rest and seats which have an in-built massage function. Now that’s an amazing feature to be installed in a car, isn’t it?
The seats have a wool upholstery instead of a leather one because the Japanese thought that the wool upholstery would keep the seats as well as the car warm during the spine-chilling winters of Japan. There is a writing table, a reading light, rear seat entertainment system with a large display and a 20 speaker system. Well, these options are quite entertaining for all those writers, book lovers or music-enthusiasts who are willing to buy this car. The behemoth is powered upto 5.0 litres V8 engine that works with a hybrid system.
The car is available in variety of colors and the buyers can order it accordingly by mentioning the color of their own choice. These high-end luxury cars look best in black which apparently suit the personalities of the top line business tycoons, celebrities or sportsperson. Don’t you agree?
