Can't you guess? Of course Japan, where else TOYOTA could sell a car for the price of Rolls-Royce? It does not look that fancy but it is.

Looks like an old mini cooper sedan or a ford thunderbird sedan.

I actually like this rear end more than the Arnage's rear end. Those suicide doors are nice.

The Origin is a special concept vehicle made to commemorate Toyota's passing the 100 million unit production milestone. It symbolizes the high level of craftsmanship employed in Toyota luxury sedans. It also celebrates the tradition of passing on engineering skills and technical expertise to new generations of Toyota engineers-a process that lies at the very heart of the company's success.

"The Origin has several features that are especially reminiscent of the first generation Toyota Crown model," explains Tsutomu Shimizu, Chief Engineer in charge of the development of the Origin. The most notable feature of the vehicle's profile is its C-pillar, whose base sits further forward than its top. The rear doors also recall memories of the first Crown. On both sides of the vehicle, the rear doors are hinged at the back rather than at a central pillar. This means the doors open outward from the centre, much like those of a cupboard or display cabinet. The hood, roof, fenders and doors are all uniquely styled for this particular vehicle.

In addition, the designs of the front and rear ends mix the smooth styles of modern and traditional car design, creating a nostalgic elegance. From the front, the chrome front bow-tie grille, circular inner headlamps and rounded fenders create a feeling of luxury and stability. From the rear, the tall, thin, jewel-shaped tail-lights are well-separated, and combine with the wide cabin to produce a dynamic appearance.

According to my source this is a production car. Design copies Toyota's 1955 first Crown model.

Okay, so I searched Toyota's site and apparently it is indeed a limited production model...

The base is a Toyota Progrès and 1,000 were produced. Everything else on post #11 seems to be correct information.
