The 2017 Toyota Century is Japan's Rolls-Royce remake

Can we say this is Toyota's challenge to the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne in its effort to provide luxury and comfort at their best? Perhaps Toyota just wants to tease us with something for its Japanese founder, Sakichi Toyoda's 100th birthday? I'm just left amazed at the design of the 2017 Century.

The Century is a top-tier model from Toyota in Japan and it's not a common vehicle found on the streets like every other car. Its a kind of car usually exclusive to heads of states, CEOs and other executive parties.

Take a look at the striking resemblance between the new Century and the latest Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. The roomy interior and extensive legroom of the Rolls is equally repeated in the Century. The classic design and state-of-the-art technology is incorporated to say the least.

Under the hood is a new and overhauled high capacity engine which in this model is a hybrid and silent-operating V8 engine which is a downgrade from the previous model's V12. “We love the V12, but we are not in that era anymore,” Toyota says. “Even with the Century, we have to start thinking about the environment. This V8 Hybrid is still unique to this model and makes equal or higher output and refinement to the V12.”

It's sad however, that the vehicle is only exclusive to select auto stores in Japan and not available outside of the country.

It's a VIP classic which has through the years maintained its traditional look and feel.
