High-brow stuff with a V12, factory air suspension, and quality unlike any other.

It's a car made to move those born into power – and obviously you want a bit of that.

Are you a foreign dignitary?

If not, are you an Emperor by chance?

Didn’t think so. But, if you want a slice of the high life, or want to ride as the Emperor of Japan did, then this 2005 Toyota Century is the car for you. They’re built with a quality that’s literally fit for a king,

If you’ve been around the block and owned a few unique things yourself – you’ll appreciate what a Century has to offer. On top of layers-upon-layers of factory paintwork, there’s a fine-grade Japanese wool interior, heated and ventilated pews front-to-back, and a fun folding passenger seat that allows guests to put their feet up and truly kick-it in style.

Don’t forget to draw the curtains. Aside from all that razzamatazz about build quality and amenity, the Toyota Century is still a modern marvel. It’s powered by Toyota’s only V12 engine; and as you’d expect, it’s smooth and bullet-proof.

It also rides on primo air suspension wafts and conjures a sense of occasion each time you drive.

It’s fun, different, and you’ll undoubtedly make a splash wherever you go in it.

The car pictured – 2005 Toyota Century V12

Our Toyota Century was built in September 2005 and is a six-speed automatic floor shift model.

That means it’s powered by a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine dubbed ‘1GZ-FE’ with 206kW of power and 481Nm of torque. As a 2005+ model, this example is an updated model with six-speed automatic.

It also features a host of other updates like heated, ventilated and massage front and rear seats, factory Bluetooth connectivity, LED tail lights, and more. This particular car is finished in the rarer shade of Serene Blue Mica.

Factory options include privacy curtains, a rear reading light, wool interior, side mirrors, a parking pole, and Century-branded seat pillows (how rad!).
