    The second-generation Toyota Century is the only Japanese production car powered by a V12 engine (an engine not shared with any other Toyota product). The 2005-and-later models feature a 6-speed automatic transmission. It's not much of a performance car, but it would be an interesting diversion.

    I Voted. I like cars with 12 cylinders since V12s are my favourite engines. I hope the Toyota Century will get a chance to come into Gran Turismo.

    And it's also the only Japanese production car to have a V12 engine.

    It's not that surprising...narrow streets, high fuel bills and stringent government laws mean no real need to have a massive V12 in your lineup.

    On a side note, here's another Century:

    The Buick Century, circa late 90s. Sold in Japan as..........Buick Regal, 'cuz Toyota owned "Century" name. :)

    Century can run as Inline-6 if one bank dies. Doesn't matter in a game though.

    Would be easy to drift with its long wheelbase.

    Would be great if we could have this car in GT7, with possible exhaust upgrades teased in the trailer. Make it sound something like effspot's Century just for the lols:

    I was sort of surprised this car wasn't already in game. How many of these suggestions are actually used?
