Chief Justice, Martha Koome, on Thursday, June 1, arrived at Madaraka Day celebrations at Moi Stadium in Embu, aboard a Toyota Land Cruiser 300 GR Sport.
The black sports car launched in Japan on August 2, 2021, was branded with the number plate CJ 1 to indicate that it was her official government car.
Various car dealers in the country estimate the car to range between Ksh20 - 23 million.
Previously, the CJ used the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser, which retails at an average cost of Ksh15 million.
Details of Land Cruiser 300 GR
The car model launched in 2021 was inspired by the 1995 Dakar Rally, where the drivers asked for cars that could withstand tough weather conditions.
One of the standout features of the vehicles is the dominant brand of the wording - TOYOTA - on the front bumper, which is different from the traditional logo.
Other exclusive features include a reinforced bumper and the Electronic-Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS).
"E-KDSS automatically and electronically controls each front and rear stabiliser independently, reacting to road conditions and the individual conditions of each of the four wheels to provide more precise stabilization adjustments," Toyota detailed on its website.
Other external features include 18-inch aluminium wheels and lower back door decals.
Its interior is designed to meet its high-end status, including a leather-wrap steering wheel, and a start-up screen with a navigation system.
"The new Land Cruiser has adopted the latest Toyota Safety Sense active safety package with additional advanced functions. Two functions have been added to the pre-collision system that helps avoid a collision or reduce damage by detecting pedestrians," Toyota documented.
Toyota Land Cruiser 300 GR Sport has a 3.3-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel engine.
