After more than 50 years, the Toyota Mark II / Mark X retires. The limousine was created in 1968 under Mark II to change its name in Mark X in 2004.
This latest-generation sedan was one of Toyota's most luxurious models when the Japanese manufacturer was still launching its premium Lexus brand. The Mark II / Mark X was an alternative to the Toyota Camry for all-wheel-drive customers who prefer rear-wheel drive.
In the United States, Mark II began to be sold in 1969 under the name Corona.
When the design of this car was changed in 1977, the manufacturer renamed it Toyota in Toyota Cressida. It was sold under this name until 1992.
The Toyota Mark II became Mark X in 2004 and is still known under this name.
The Japanese manufacturer will be released from its limousine for half a century by a special limited edition of the Mark X 250S Final Edition.
The vehicle will be equipped with specially designed 18-inch alloy wheels and will have dark chrome details on the body, while the interior is dominated by reds and blacks, and the seats will be covered with alkantar and leather.
Customers will be able to choose between three exterior colors – White Pearl Crystal Shine, Silver Metallic and Precious Black Pearl. The Toyota Mark X 250S Final Edition will be available with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
