Toyota V12 Luxury Limo is Almost 50 Year's Old
Toyota V12 Luxury Limo is Almost 50 Year's Old. Tokyo - In all big cities in the world, it is easy to recognize the powerful elite. They swan of the House to the splendor stroking of the conference room, a driver to just the best engine: Rolls-Royce, Maybach. Here in the megacity of Tokyo, however, things are a bit different: Toyota.
Yes, if you are an entrepreneur in the Japan, you avoid the temptation to bling Germanic and plump for the more expensive Toyota ever made. The dreadnought is literally imperial, limousines, favored by Emperor Akihito himself. It's the mobile version of the Chrysanthemum throne, the V12 engine Royal barge that has not really changed over the past five decades.
And, because I can't really take any good, I happened to be listening to The Tragically Hip ahead by a century in the back seat on this one. Canada, eh? Can not take us anywhere.
For the gearhead world travellers, Tokyo traffic ceases to be fun on the first five minutes. Yes, there's a habit like spaghetti strapped air route two-lane winding around, but the car is relatively unremarkable. After awhile, all the small weird wheel named bento-box begins to looks a lot like the Camry and civic education of our cities. You may see weird import, but there is much less interesting that the film and television machine would have us believe.
Century is not these things. The modern versi is a machine's design in 1967 and again in 1997, when Toyota are at the top of the game. Imagine the enginering that went into twin--turbo Toyota Supra and Lexus LS400 the second generation has been applied to Coronation of cost-no object.
And the result? Vehicles without equal. There is no production of V12 rear driving other motor vehicle manufactured in the Japan. 19th century 5 0-liter, 276-horsepower 12 cylinder engines appear elsewhere-Lexus LS600h Lighthouse merely ubiquitous hybridization. This century has air suspension and a wheelbase of 3 meters, the inside of the wool that is unique, and it weighs two tons. The wheels are adorned with Golden Phoenix, the type you often see's cresting Buddhist temples.
But at the same time, you really expect this is a six-digit car? It is very old looking and more small touches such as badge gold V12 behind the mast, rather simple. Take the book to the flying spur Bentley and there will be a pregnant cow can be make to the reams of copy on how to hide the best Bull chose to avoid stretch marks. This century don't even have leather seats.
