Toyota Australia has announced that its factory near Melbourne has produced its three-millionth car recently.
The first car built by Toyota on Australian soil came in April 1963. After that, it took them 29 years to reach the milestone of one million, another 12 for the second and the last 8 for the third million.

“It was here in Australia that Toyota first tasted international success – the first country outside Japan to produce Toyota cars and to build a Toyota engine manufacturing plant,” said Matthew Callachor, Toyota Australia’s executive director of sales and marketing.

Toyota’s Altona plant in Melbourne only makes the Camry and the Aurion, another sedan that’s also based on the Camry. The landmark production vehicle you see in the picture about is a 2012 Camry Hybrid model destined for the local market.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
