Full Description

2010 LTI TX4 Elegance

Iconic London Taxi with lower mileage - ideal to nip in and out the city in complete discretion with all the bonuses of a Taxi

Supplied new by Mann & Overton of Islington, London in December 2012 to its first of just 3 owners, this LTI TX4 taxi is in Elegance specification with automatic transmission mated to the proven 2.4 litre diesel engine.

Finished in iconic black, it served in London until our last owner purchased it for fun in Sherbourne, Dorset last year. Showing just 124,200 miles this TX4 is barely run in, with many (like the other LTI Taxi in the sale) having covered galactic miles with ease given the low revving, low stress placed on the engines and regular use.

Looking cool with its HGV style hub caps and mock taxi license on the back puporting to be the Caunsall Cab Co, it offers seating for 6 in the back plus the driver up front, sat in a comfy Recaro sports seat with wood effect trim and an array of switches to play with including air con. Ideal to slip in and out of the Big Smoke via the bus and taxi lanes, congestion zones and other usually off-limits areas the normal motorist can only dream of accessing. We can see the appeal.

Within the history file, we find the V5C, service book revealing 5 stamps plus hand written note suggesting the cambelt was changed at 114,000 miles with the last stamped service in July 2019 (mileage not stated) along with a selection of maintenance and parts invoices which include £317 spent on recovery an fitment of a new alternator in November 2020, ignition switch in January 2021, rectification of owner stated faults and new battery in October 2020 costing £312, ECU software update in March 2020 costing £199, replacement of the termostat housing in February 2020, new OSF wheel bearing and top mount in December 2019 costing £119, replacement of supplied gearbox oil cooler in October 2019 at a cost of £120, full service and replacement head lamps in August 2019 costing £220 and a monster £2159 spend in October 2018 at 114,558 miles to include timing belt service, intercooler to intercooler hose renewal, EGR valve, EGR cooler, valve actuation system, an array of gaskets and hoses, suspension bushes, damper and brake pads and in December 2016 a repair to the chassis cross member costing £234 and major service costing a further £1200.

The MOT is valid until October 2021 with one advisory for a slight oil leak and there are 9 old MOTs additionally on file plus 2 fobs and spare keys. Ready to put to work or use for fun or whatever you see fit, these Taxis always sell well and given the low mileage and ownership of this example we expect this trend to continue.
