1997 Toyota Century, right hand drive Ultra-Luxury sedan imported from Japan.
This car had an original MSRP of over $110,000 in 1997, hand assembled and hand painted by the best craftsman of Toyota's special team tasked to make Century's. This car was originally designed with the goal of creating the most luxurious ride possible for the wealthy politicians and business executives of Japan that didn’t want to be seen in a foreign brand. Every aspect of this vehicle was designed around the comfort of the rear passengers. From the wool interior to the massaging and heated rear seats, you'll forget you're being whisked along by a 5 litre v12 on factory air ride suspension through town hidden from sight by your personal rear curtains. There's no vehicle that can compete with the attention of detail you'll only find on this Century. The name Century name plate for these cars derives from the 100th Anniversary of the birthday of the founder of Toyota, Sakichi Toyoda. Born in 1867 Sakichi Toyoda founded the Toyota Family Group, in 1963 Toyota Motor Company started to design the first Century, by 1967 the first Century was released. That first generation of Century's ran from 1967 all the way to 1996 with very few changes other than technology updates on the interior. In 1997 they released the 2nd generation with the first ever v12 ever made by Toyota, and the only v12 ever made by any Japanese auto manufacture. It was kept into production all the way into 2017, when it was replaced in 2018 by the 3rd generation Century, and continues to be made to this day. The 2nd gen Century's v12 was designed and built for ultra quiet and smooth operation, Toyota had actually just designed 2 Toyota v6 motors into 1, but it keeps 2 fuel pumps, 2 ECU's, and 2 intakes and can run on half of the motor if there were a failure.
Ask me about pricing for chauffeured driving. I'm open to do airport runs, proms, weddings, bachelor parties, I'll be your private driver for a night out bar hopping or maybe an anniversary with your significant other. I'll do Vail / Aspen runs from the airport or wherever, or be a personal driver for your business trip in town to and from hotels or meets. The $300 I set as a full 8 hour day for chauffering. But if you wanted just 2 or 4 hours out bar hopping as your personal driver I can do that for cheaper. Or anniversary date night pick you up at home, go to a concert and then to a restaurant or bar and back home, whatever you want just reach out let me know and we can setup something to make your day unforgettable.
The event pricing is also negotiable depending on the time frame you want with the vehicle whether it's a couple hours or a couple days I can make anything work.
The normal rental is for 24 hours, so pick it up at noon for example and return at noon. Half days or shorter can be arranged too so just let me know.
So whatever your wants feel free to reach out to me and we can make the perfect tailored plan to you and I hope you're ready to experience one of the coolest cars ever made.
