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.

  • Doug DeMuro, that’s not a tape recorder. That’s a Sony Walkman branded Century without FM/AM reciever, it cannot record, it’s for the people in the back to play their cassette’s.

  • Toyota should have sell this instead of shitty Avalon for the US Market. I will never understand we get a shitty Toyota while Japan got a good Toyota even their Camry is so much better than American Version.

  • As a truck driver I’m very used to fender mounted mirrors. They are absolutely the best place for a mirror to be mounted. Whenever I drive something other than the truck, I alway wish I had those extra mirrors.

  • 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...

  • 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.
