I tend to forget that the Century is still around, and even though this now has quite a bit of Rolls Royce vibes, i still olve these JDM only oddities that make the car world more colorfull...

I like this a lot. Still obviously a Century, but reasonably contemporary (less so if it’s still in production in 2035, admittedly). Elegant in its simplicity. The interior has more design flourishes than I expected, and is also quite attractive.

I believe they do consider cloth more “prestigious”. For one thing, it doesn’t make as much noise when getting in and out of the seat.

I agree. However perverse my opinion may be, I think this looks great. Nothing histrionic about it.

I have to wonder if this would be a great companion to the Lexus LS in the USA. The campy nature of this wannabe Rolls is a hoot.

Out is the old 1GZ-FE V12 and in is the less old LS 600 hL hybrid V8 powertrain. Thats about all I can decipher.

This is strictly a regional flavor. But hey, no "Spindle Grille" to be seen.
