Feeble attempt at humor.
The Toyota Century with a big, 500hp V8 would easily be more compelling than the forgettable A8 and the dated 7 Series. The Century has swagger just as the 2005 Chrysler 300 had when it debuted and became a "gotta have" car.
This would be a great way to compete with the Mercedes S because it would provide an "old school" machine as a counterpoint to the futuristic S Class. The LS/A8/7 Series all try to do what Mercedes does and they fail because the Mercedes is simply better at those parameters. There would be buyers for an ultra-traditional ultra-luxury premium sedan. Too bad Cadillac can't see that.
