The Toyota Century is one highly regarded vehicle in Japan since its introduction back in 1967. It is Toyota’s flagship car in Japan and is used as the official state vehicle for high-level government officials. It’s even The Emperor of Japan’s transport of choice, with his majesty owning a one-of-a-kind Century Convertible which he used during his coronation recently.
While it might be exclusive and stately, TOM’s – the officially supported tuning arm of Toyota and Lexus – has ‘commissioned’ 36 units of the limited edition TOM’s Century at ¥28,160,000 each (A$372,870).
Despite the seemingly jaw dropping price tag, it’s a bargain compared to the range-topping Century in Japan which costs a whopping ¥60,000,000 (A$794,467)!
Back to TOM’s creation, it features subtle but tasteful modifications including a front and rear lip, side skirts, a boot lid spoiler and a new set of chrome wheels. There’s also a new exhaust to amplify the sound from the 5.0-litre hybridised V8.
No images have been released of the interior but TOM offers a high level of customisation for the well heeled.
Tom’s Century won the Custom Car Excellence Award for Sedans at the 2020 Tokyo Motor Show.
