2005 LTI TXII Gold Taxi

Iconic London Taxi in Gold spec with proven 2.4 diesel and manual 'box; easy access wheel chair ramp; ideal for slipping through congestion charge zones in utter anonymity

Dating from July 2005 this late model TXII taxi is built by London Taxi International and features the proven 2.4 litre Ford Duratorq inter-cooled diesel engine giving a 21% increase in torque over its Nissan-based predecessor and is here, unusually, driven via 5-speed manual transmission and finished in light blue rather than boring black.

These LTI Taxi's are always popular with some buying them for anonymous travel into cities avoiding congestion charges and using bus/taxi lanes for swift progress and easy parking/turning, others using them for unusual business ideas like mobile photo-booths for which they work rather well given their capacious interiors or even just to take a gaggle of kids to school with their ability to carry so many in the back.

This example has covered a typically galactic mileage, showing 398,900 at its last MOT in October 2020 recording just one advisory for a slight oil leak although many have done twice this mileage with ease. In addition, the history file includes the V5C showing 6 previous owners to our vendor along with a TFL Taxi Licence confirming its use as a London taxi until October 2020.

There are a few cosmetic issues to be expected given its city usage, age and mileage, in particular the bottoms of both front doors but nothing that couldn't be sorted with relative ease.
