Against the background of the high-performance version of the Japanese limousine Toyota Century, you can see several more sports cars, and in particular the new generation Toyota Supra coupe. About the novelty so far nothing really is known.

Recently, almost every automobile brand has a powerful car – as a rule it is a “hot” version of an existing model, demonstrating what this company is capable of. So Japanese Toyota decided to present a similar model.

Akio Toyoda, the current president of the Japanese brand, introduced the Toyota Century luxury sedan in a powerful version from the sports division GRMN Performance. In this video, Mr. Toyoda begins the ceremony in which the car is shown.

The novelty has taken its place among the hybrid hypercar Toyota TS050, Prius GT300 Series Super GT, coupe GT86, as well as the disguised Supra prototype. In order to emphasize the sporty character of the new version of the Japanese limousine, the driver in a racing uniform sat behind his wheel.

Toyota Century prices start at $ 180,000. The car is fully assembled by hand, and only 50 pieces are produced per month. Under the long hood is a hybrid installation, which consists of a 5.0-liter V8 and an electric motor. The total power is 376 horsepower (510 Nm). CVT CVT sends all power to the rear wheels.

The entire list of changes for Toyota Century in the GRMN version is a bit mysterious – the company simply does not discuss it. There are some new elements of the exterior. The limousine received a four-wheel drive and certainly an increase in power. The car became lower.
