Now something completely different after this inflated embarrassing Mafia carriage by Maybach.

[Linked Image]

The Toyota Century is probably the most idiosyncratic car in a certain way.
The Century has a tremendous symbolic power in Japan. The car radiates such an understatement but one from another planet. It's just the inner values. All the metal sheets are handmade. A single master wears seven coats of paint according to old Japanese craftsmanship tradition.

This car does not boast. It is not neccessarily a car for people who want to upgrade themselves with the help of a car. It's not made for dynamic managers with the pressure to succeed, pimps, American presidents and who else needs a big show-off car.

When a Toyota Century appears in Japan, all passers-by are at a respectful distance. The car itself is not the show. It's the VIPs who are driven in it, right up to the Tenno. its that all Japanese people respect.

Did Maybach make this, or was it a concept prototype?

It's one smooth car, I believe the intention is to produce them from what started out as a concept in 2017. 6 Cabriolet

This link suggests they will be for sale but the price has as yet to be announced. more information

Always worth a try wink

Heinz, sorry I didn't mean to hijack your thread I was just defending Maybach after my earlier comments on their new Panzerwagen thumbs

No problem, Richard. This Maybach is a fabulous prototype. The Toyota is not attractive in the sense that most of us desire. So I see it as a vitalization of the thread.
