Available now – a radical 2JZ-powered Toyota Crown with 11/10 aesthetics.
Nothing says business like a 2JZ-powered Crown with factory fender mirrors and BBS wheels.
Toyota’s 2JZ engine is one of its most-famous.
It’s the legendary 3.0-litre straight-six from the Toyota JZA80 Supra that’s known for huge power outputs and buttery-smooth operation. Like the Supra, the four-door Toyota Crown uses a rear-wheel drive layout, too.
Endless potential. This particular JZS155 Crown was built in the 1990s and at a time where Toyota in Japan were targeting Euro in terms of ride quality and perceived quality.
It’s evident in how smooth, quiet and fuss-free a good one goes down an Australian road today. This specific example was configured from the factory in one that’s rare and unusual – single silver-tone exterior paint, fender mirrors and a bonnet emblem!
Topping things off are a set of period-correct BBS wheels. It looks fantastic, is powered by one of Toyota’s finest, and won’t ever leave you stranded.
It’s actually a real-deal Japanese Domestic Market car too – so tell that to your mates driving Aussie-delivered cars pretending they’re “JDM”!
The car pictured – 1997 Toyota Crown Royal
Our Toyota Crown was built in January 1997 and is a ‘Royal Saloon G’ model.
That means it’s powered by the legendary 3.0-litre straight-six ‘2JZ-GE’ engine with 162kW power, 294Nm torque, and a four-speed automatic transmission (A340).
What makes this car special is its unique and factory configuration of single-tone silver, fender mirrors, an upright bonnet emblem and heated front seats / massage rear seats.
Other fun features include automatic headlights, a strange passenger side front ‘comfort’ headrest that your partner will absolutely love, remote central locking, electric front and rear seats, and a cool aftermarket Japanese stereo.
