Nice catch. That's a second gen Toyota Century, with a 5.0 V12 engine.

Ok. I managed to find it...

I only saw the name "CENTURY" on the boot but dunno what car maker. It is a Toyota and might have a 5L V12 in there. Looks like a 2nd Gen. Produced in 1997-2017. No wonder the LED tail-lights looked so modern.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Century

The Century received a complete redesign in April 1997, although the new model was visually very similar to the previous generation. This model is powered by a 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp) 5.0 L 1GZ-FE V12, initially with a 4-speed automatic, until a 6-speed "intelligent" transmission arrived in 2005. It also features air suspension. The Century remains the first and only Japanese front-engine, rear-wheel-drive production car equipped with a V12, and it is Toyota's first V12 engine.

hahahaha note epower is decent 🤣🤣

how was the interior quality? never been inside one. I guess for the combi, the 2.0 would be better due to the weight

You sat in my Sharan before with a few others in the car, and tasted how powerful it is right? In brief, the 2.0 Superb behave in the same manner but it is more planted, so how does it sounds like to you? [drivingcar]

I drove it to Cameron with 4 pax + some barang barang, and the car move effortlessly up the slope at a speed of >100Km/h (non sharp turn zone). I also hit its rated top speed on NSHW without any difficulty, and the car remain planted even at close to 200Km/h, a far cry from the other cars I have driven.

Talking about that, let me ownself post ownself... this is my previous Superb 2.0TSI , which I saw it last year. FYI, there were just 30+ 2.0TSI variant in Singapore, definitely a rare car on our shore, and deserve a place in this thread.

BTW, the colour is Magnetic Brown (not black). I took these shots before I trade it in in Dec 2016.

Go on YouTube to find one in Japan with equal length exhaust headers. Really nice exhaust sounds.
