2018 Toyota Century HYBRID The Ultimate in Japanese Luxury

The Toyota Century is the ultimate Luxury-Mobile to come out of Japan, and all of asia for that. The Toyota Century is the car you get chauffeured in if you are a dignitary, diplomat or even the president. The Century made its debut in 1967 and didn't get a redesign until 1997; now in 2018 we get its latest redition. The most noteable change, and a very popular automotive trend lately is the "downgrade" in powertrain. For 40 years the Toyota Century has had the prestigious power of a v12 engine, and now less cylinders are favored as a 5.0-liter V-8 Hybrid from the Lexus LS600hL is now in. - 2018 Toyota Century HYBRID The Ultimate in JDM Luxury
