  • Due with us in late November / early December is another Toyota Century GZG50.This will be the third example of the V12 Century that we have imported. Our previous examples have been blue and grey with Lambs Wool trim. This one is Black with Grey leather and has door mounted mirrors.It is a 1998 version that was first registered in Japan in January of that year, so not very long until it satisfies the '25 year' ruling making export to the USA a viable proposition. This one is a grade 3.5/B example and has covered 150,000 miles (242,000 kms). Our other examples had covered around 120,000 miles each. Once it arrives with us it will be UK registered, MOT'd and prepared to our usual high standards using genuine Toyota parts and any items deemed required such as tyres will also be fitted.The V12 Century is the only 12 cylinder car made by a Japanese manufacturer and as well as offering spectacular value for money turns heads wherever it goes. Many people assume it's a Cadillac and are surprised to learn its Japanese.I have found 23/24 mpg with a 400 mile tank range to be a realistic expectation when using these magnificent cars, making them useable daily drivers in many cases. The quality is astonishing; they were hand built in a dedicated factory using only the finest materials available. Seven coats of paint were applied with each coat being hand sanded prior to the next one being added.The Century is often referred to as the 'Japanese Rolls Royce'. The reality is it surpasses European luxury cars of the era in terms of refinement and quality. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your interest.
