A leading British automotive fashion house has transformed the iconic black taxi into a £118,000 show stopper.


Having been commissioned in 2017 by the London Taxi Company to produce the TX4 ‘Last of Line’ edition, Kahn has reimagined its latest sibling, the LEVC TX, by creating the Farelady edition.

The Farelady is distinctive and unique from other black cabs roaming the streets of London. On the exterior the three most noticeable changes includes the Maybach inspired front grill, the roof spoiler designed to allow colour-splitting and the staggered lightweight alloy wheels.

The iconic orange taxi light has been updated to include the word ‘VIP’ to allow doorstaff of the passengers unique and exclusive arrival.

It gets better in the interior too. As expected with Kahn styling, the Farelady edition has been fitted out luxuriously. Features include soft carpet and Bugatti Chiron inspired quilted seats and a scattering with starlight commonly seen in Rolls Royce vehicles. There are also technological upgrades including wireless phone charging and switchable LED lighting.

Afzal Kahn said: "It is always a privilege to work on what is truly one of the most iconic cars in the world. The Last of Line edition was a great success for us, with the vehicles all finding homes with private collectors, and I look forward to embarking on a journey with new clients who wish to possess their own piece of British history in the form of the TX5 taxi.


"May I take this opportunity to thank the team at the London Electric Vehicle Company for the engineering expertise and technical support.

"The fully converted TX taxi is priced from £99,000 + VAT and can be ordered in left- or right-hand drive in a choice of colours including black, blue, British racing green, silver and grey. The interior package is also available in a plethora of colours covering the entire spectrum of modern and traditional hues. The restyling has been undertaken in manner respecting the TX5's design, integrating with and flowing from the styling of the original vehicle.

"You can imagine discerning clients cruising in the back of this iconic vehicle which features a super luxurious finish and a classic, understated design while at the same time reducing emissions in cities and delivering substantial savings for operators who chauffeur clients in style."
