Regular Car Reviews: 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8

Published on Aug 10, 2015 760,290 views

"Stealth Wealth" that's what this car is. The Phaeton is the only car I've driven that is better at "car-ing" than a Tesla Model S.

  • DrewLSsix
    DrewLSsix 3 недели назад Johnny Nimble leather is also not all that popular in Japan. In America leather is a popular option on all but the lowest range cars but you rarely see it in Japanese market cars.

  • Jason B
    Jason B Год назад You buy a used Century in US. But I think Toyota wants to KEEP the Century a Japan exclusive not a volume production car.
  • Paul Fed
    Paul Fed Год назад the 90s ones are quite cheap actually its the import charges that are expensive
  • Paul Fed
    Paul Fed Год назад the century was designed in 67 and was produced until 93 ,as the 1 series and then it was updated
  • Wiseguy7
    Wiseguy7 2 года назад I know right? If I'm rich, I'm definitely getting one. If its good enough for the emperor of Japan it sure as hell good enough for those who can afford it.
  • FasterThanSoup
    FasterThanSoup 3 года назад +mundotaku '97 I believe was the second and most recent generation (with the V12 introduced) but the nameplate has been around for decades prior to this. This is one of my favourite cars. I usually don't like big cars, but when I do I go excessive. I really like the older ones like the one linked somewhere in this thread, just beautiful

  • Toastee
    Toastee 3 года назад Whoa! Never heard of this car but just looked it up. And god damn there's something incredibly sexy about its quarter panels. Love that low wheel arch and the way the panel smoothly tapers as you move toward the rear bumper. Reminds me a bit of an old American car (can't quite put my finger on it) except smoother and more modern. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b7/Toyota_Century_Chiba1a.JPG
  • Johnny Nimble
    Johnny Nimble 3 года назад There was a really good little doc on the Century that I wish I could find again.  The takeaway line was that they stuck to cloth because leather made undignified noises not befitting the driver or passenger's status.  I should import one when I have the means.
  • mundotaku
    mundotaku 3 года назад @Dylan S.  Oh no, you are thinking about the Crown Majesta. No, the Century was designed in 1997 and hasn't change that much ever since. It has a v12 engine made just for it.
  • kona
    kona 3 года назад @Dylan S. the century also had a v12 which is shown here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bII1hYVNa4
  • iamstd2
    iamstd2 3 года назад that could apply to any 90's Japanese luxury car really
  • Dylan
    Dylan 3 года назад @TheNGplus Yeah, although it's pretty much just a GS400. The interior is a little nicer and the styling is much better
  • d .w
    d .w 3 года назад @mundotaku I wish they brought the Crown here.
  • Louche Decay
    Louche Decay 3 года назад @mundotaku I want one of those so. bad. From Toyota themselves, "the Century is acquired through persistent work, the kind that is done in a plain but formal suit."

    Johnny Nimble 3 года назад @mundotaku I hadn't thought of that until now, but you're probably on point there.

  • Madison County Sound Labs
    Madison County Sound Labs 3 года назад Two years ago I purchased a Black 2004 W-12 Phaeton.  I bought it from a private owner off E-Bay who lived within a three hour drive from me.  When I  saw it I contacted the seller and arranged to see it. I got to the guy's house and drove it.  Incredible machine.  I logged into my E-Bay account from his computer and purchased it through ""Buy-It-Now.   I gave him 2,500.00 in earnest money and arranged to pick up the car three days later.  I purchased the car for 14,200.00 total.  It rides like a Rolls Royce Silver Spirit but with more horsepower.  I get about 11 miles per gallon city and 16 highway while in the city.   This is not my daily driver. I drive it approx. three times a month.  I'm extremely pleased I have it.

  • Fleetwing1627
    Fleetwing1627 3 года назад "How quiet is it? Quieter than a timpani player who's just lost his place in the music." As a non-percussionist who occasionally gets the opportunity to womp on the timpani during church I live this line. I'm usually lost about 50% of the time.

  • J Donns
    J Donns 3 года назад A Bentley in VW clothes.  Wasn't this a pet project for one of the VW execs?  Great review.  I don't know why here in America we can't recognize a high end car unless its branded from a high end brand.  That's the only reason Lexus, Acura, Infiniti were made.

  • M Scuba
    M Scuba 2 года назад That's not accurate. Lexus, Acura and Infiniti were made to slip past US import restrictions of the time which were foolishly capped by BRAND and not manufacturer. All the Japanese automakers had to do was make a new brand and POOF double your limits
