This modified Toyota Century has all the impact

Japanese tuner Wald International gives the iconic limo a makeover

Read more on:

The Toyota Century is a very, very big deal. Having been introduced in 1967, Japan is only on its third generation of the reverential limo, and customers include the country’s monarchy, the prime minister and the Yakuza.

You can guess which section of the Century’s clientele the above example is aimed at, can’t you?

This is Japanese tuner Wald International’s take on the Century, complete with a bodykit that includes a front spoiler with stainless steel trim, some low side steps, a rear diffuser (on a Century!?) and a mini boot spoiler. Looks pretty cool, right?

You won’t have missed those mega wheels either. They’re 22-inch items that can be had in black or the rather imposing silver pictured here. 

There’s no news on any mechanical upgrades, so presumably the Century keeps its 5.0-litre V8 with twin electric motors for propulsion, and Wald hasn’t said how much you’d need to pay in addition to the £140,000 base price.
