It looks like prominent politicians and celebrities have a way of getting their hands on the rarest of rare luxury vehicles irrespective of their availability, or lack thereof, in the market.
The connection between Indian politicians and celebrities with the Toyota Land Cruiser goes way back. The mighty Land Cruiser is the preferred choice of opulence ride for influential people. Signifying the popularity of the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is its waiting period that runs up to 4 years on its home turf, Japan. The official Japanese website apologized to the aspiring customers regarding the long waiting times for the deliveries citing the semiconductor shortage as the main reason. But somehow, an Indian politician has managed to get one.

According to the information in the video, this SUV was spotted somewhere on the roads of Coimbatore and Chennai, evidently creating a frenzy among the onlookers. Its imposing road present and rare appearance made it stand out.
