The powerful and luxurious Toyota Crown Athlete V is a genuine pleasure to drive whether you are a Japanese executive or western enthusiast. In Japan, it also conveys a certain prestige.

Toyota Crowns have been available in Japan since 1955 and were always a popular fleet vehicle for government officials, corporate executives and limo drivers. But Toyota wanted to attract more private users. So it introduced a sportier, more powerful and less conservative model called the Crown Athlete V in 1999 — Japan’s answer to the Mercedes-Benz W140. Drivers loved it and the Athlete V eventually became one of the most popular models in the Crown series.

The 2.5-liter inline 6 DOHC turbo engine (1JZ-GTE) in the 2001 Toyota Crown Athlete V delivers more torque at low engine speeds than other contemporary Crown engines because smaller exhaust ports accelerate the flow of escaping gasses and turn the single, more efficient turbocharger faster at low rpm. The 24-valve engine is also equipped with continuously variable valve timing (VVT-i) that squeezes out more efficiency.

The result is an impressive 280 PS (210 kW) at 6200 rpm and 379 Nm (280 lbf·ft) at 2400 rpm that deliver powerful acceleration throughout the entire rpm range and a top speed of 180 kph (112 mph).

Toyota also stiffened the suspension beyond that of other Crown models to please performance-oriented drivers without compromising comfort. The sporty handling may not compete with high-end German sports sedans, but it’s solid and predictable even during spirited driving.

This 2001 Toyota Crown Athlete V in the hands of Japan Car Direct is in immaculate condition. Its beautiful black finish and sharp chrome trim combine with a dark gray interior, luxurious amenities and powerful response to crown any driver king of the road.

Japanese tend to keep their cars in fantastic condition and Japan Car Direct can help you import the secondhand car of your dreams from Japan at a more reasonable price than you’ll find from your local dealer.

The Japanese used car market is one of the world’s most vibrant, with over 50,000 vehicles going on auction every week and a huge number of specialist dealers handling every imaginable make and model.

Whether you seek a used JDM Toyota, Italian supercar or German luxury car with left or right hand drive, contact Japan Car Direct today!

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust.

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

    5 star review  Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.

    5 star review  I just wanna thank Matthew and the whole team at Japan Car Direct, they always went above and beyond in making sure their clients are always happy and informed about the vehicles they are purchasing. I am still in the buying process but so far 5/5 definitely. I’ll keep everyone posted when I do find a car!

    5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

  • 5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
