1997 GZG50 Toyota Century luxury 5.0L V12 RWD sedan.
Very low 94,000kms.
It features the 1GZ-FE 5.0L DOHC VVT-i V12 engine combined with a 4 speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.
This engine is unique to the Toyota Century and it is the only Japanese vehicle ever built with a V12 engine.
The Toyota Century is not only Toyota’s, but Japan’s flagship luxury vehicle. The 2nd Generation GZG50 Century had an almost 20 year production run from 1997 to 2017.
Often referred to as a Japanese Rolls Royce, the Century was aimed almost exclusively at the Japanese market. Centuries are often used by corporate business leaders, senior government officials, like the Japanese Prime Minister, Japanese ambassadors overseas and of course, is the official vehicle for the Japanese Royal family.
The Century is built in nearly hand-made fashion. The plant where the Century is produced is very different to a standard mass-production plant. There is no assembly line, no long row of cars. There is no sound of electronics or machinery. In this quiet, spacious area, a small number of highly trained, skilled craftsmen create cars almost as if they are producing works of art.
The production process for the Century has five steps: stamping, body, painting, assembly, and inspection. Each step incorporates the master craftsmanship to rival any of the world’s top ultra-luxurious marques.
