The company will build a special Century cabriolet

Toyota will build a unique version of Century for the new emperor of Japan. It will be a convertible made in a single copy and custom-made. It is expected that he will be seen live during the coronation parade this fall.

Imperial convertible built on the basis of the third generation Toyota Century sedan. The model debuted in 2017 and is equipped with a hybrid powerplant from the Lexus LS 600h with a five-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine and the THS II electromechanical variator. The total return – 431 horsepower.

In the cabin of the Toyota Century four seats. For finishing of seats 100 percent wool is used, but at the request of the client it can be replaced with skin. For the rear passengers, the Century has footrests, massage, power seats, tables, a control panel for other seats, air conditioning and an audio system with 20 speakers, as well as a large-screen entertainment complex installed in the back of the armrest between the front seats.

Toyota Century is the official car of the imperial house of Japan. In 2006, the company built a special version for the Emperor Century Royal. All four copies of the car received thresholds of granite, upholstered rice paper ceiling and salon with wool trim.
