A second-hand London taxi has been listed for sale at an eye-watering £99,000... but it’s not any old taxi.
The traditional looking 2017 London Taxis International (LTI) TX4 is a one of its kind collector's item designed by the renowned British automotive designer, Afzal Kahn.
The London Taxi TX4 Edition cab is one of only five ‘Last of Line Edition’ vehicles commissioned by The London Taxi Company.
Manufactured as part of the final production shift, twenty years since the distinctive TX1 model first took to the streets; this TX4 ‘Last of Line’ edition represents an enduring piece of British history.
The diesel cab up for sale on AutoTrader and listed by a private seller, has only covered 1,300 miles since it was purchased.
When it was released in 2018 the iconic vehicle was available in a choice of 5 Rolls Royce colours, whilst colour coded contrast wheels, VIP LED roof interior star lighting and a slotted front grille showcased customary high standards of craftsmanship.
Privacy glass keeps the interior hidden, but step inside and you will find distinctly un-taxi-like Quilted and perforated Nappa Leather front and rear Seats.
A re-upholstered piano black instrument surround, colour coded seat belts, last of line door sills, leather trimmed steering wheel and last of the line branding are just some of the additions to what is an endearing and nonchalant interior.
The ‘taxi’ also comes fitted with an onboard television and fridge.
The original cost of the vehicle was a mammoth £150,000, but interested buyers can now snap this iconic vehicle up for a price of £99,000.
