    Here for sale i have my 2008 Toyota Crown 3.5 V6 Hybrid. The ultimate daily.
    One of around 5 or 6 in the UK.

    I've owned the car since Nov 2019 and it has been faultless throughout my ownership.
    Only reason for selling is that i have no need for it and would prefer to have a weekend toy.
    Note - the GWS204 crown shares the majority of its parts with a Lexus GS450H - so parts are widely available if needed.

    Originally imported via Drift Performance Imports as a grade 4 in 2019 - I was the first UK owner.
    Immediately i had the car undersealed to protect from the UK roads. This was done again at the last MOT .

    Currently on 96,000 miles (152,000km - speedo still in KM) Last serviced at 94,000 miles by myself around 6 months ago. Car comes with some service history from Japan too.

    3.5 V6 2GR-FSE engine - produces 345bhp thanks to the added Hybrid batteries.
    This car is no slouch in a straight line!
    ULEZ compliant and around £290 per year for road tax.
    The car switches between petrol power and hybrid mode when driving around town, but in my opinion the addition of the hybrid motor is purely to increase peak power.
    Automatic CVT Gearbox with "sport" mode to replicate classic gearing.

    The car is lightly modified with the following:
    Airlift V2 3/8" Air suspension - compressor hidden and tank mounted to top of boot - maintaining full usability of boot space. 2nd last pic shows the height that i drive at. Front goes much higher if needed.
    "Duracell" tank wrap.
    BC Racing Coilovers - springs have been replaced with OnlyChargedDubs Air bags - I still have the brand new springs if normal coilovers are preferred.
    SSR Executor CV01 3pc Split rims. These are 20" x 9" ET24 on the front and 20" x 10" ET24 on the rear. (£4000+ on here when new without tyres)
    Brake calipers spray painted in VHT Porsche Acid Green
    Headlights have been split and the centres sprayed black. (Hybrid crowns come with a horrible blue chrome light as standard)
    Non-Hybrid OEM Crown rear lights (Hybrid crowns have lexus style lights from factory)
    Factory fitted lip kit (Modellista i believe)
    Custom side skirt extensions in matte black
    Tinted front fog lights
    Limo tinted rear windows
    Stainless steel exhaust rear section - catalytic converters etc still in place.
    LED Lights - Mirrors have indicators built in - these come on at night as side markers. Purple ambient lighting in front footwells. Puddle lights in doors.

    Additional spec to note (from factory):
    062 Pearl White paint
    2 keys
    Surround sound system - speakers in rooflining and on front seats - as well as the usual door speakers, parcel shelf speakers etc.
    Bluetooth stereo for both phone and music. There is a hard drive for storing CD's. This currently has 100+ albums of questionable Japanese music on it. Kept purely for novelty.
    Heated and Air Conditioned front seats - electric slide and tilt etc with 2 memory settings for drivers seat. Heated rear seats with electric recline function - the radio can also be controlled from the rear seats via the folding middle armrest.
    Soft close doors all round including boot
    Electric rear window blind
    Manual rear side window blinds
    Radar cruise control
    Electric folding mirrors with LED sidemarkers built in.
    Electrically adjustable steering column (Steering wheel moves in when car is turned off to make getting in and out easier)
    Digital dashboard with LCD screen
    Electrically “swinging” center front heater vents
    Keyless entry with push button start
    EV mode / Sport mode / Eco mode
    Reversing camera
    Individual climate control with air purifier
    Rear ISOFIX

    Points to note - Up close - you can see hairline cracks in the front bumper. This has not bothered me during my ownership as you can only see it from 1-2 foot away.
    Wheels require refurb - i intended on doing it this summer but i guess it would be best to leave for new owner to choose colours etc.
    Headlights would benefit from a polish (Standard for a Toyota) - shown in last picture
    Car will be sold with the original number plate - LP58 HLF

    Located in Aberdeen, Scotland.
    Will consider p/x for a fun weekend car. (Lotus Elise etc)
