1991 Toyota Aristo.jpg

Toyota Aristo (JZS140/JZS147/JZS147L). 1991–7 (prod. 69,010 sold in Japan). 4-door sedan. F/R, F/A, 2997 cm³ (I6 DOHC), 3968 cm³ (V8 DOHC). ItalDesign-styled luxury model (similar ideas surfaced in 1990, two years after the house began work on the Aristo, on its Jaguar Kensington concept). Exported as Lexus GS 300 and related to Toyota Crown Majesta (S140); unlike the Majesta, it was a regular sedan rather than a hardtop. Considered an attractive, well proportioned and clean shape at the time, albeit somewhat anonymous. Straight sixes, one turbocharged; four-litre V8 shared with Celsior; engines considered underpowered for the heavy car, especially with its sporting ambitions. Mid-term changes 1994, safety equipment improved 1995. Cd at 0,31. Well built, if lacking in personality.


Manufacturing location: Japan
