2006 LTI TXII Silver
British icon here in 'Silver' spec; fresh MOT until October 2022; ideal for slipping in and out of the city
Supplied new by Mann & Overton of Islington, London to its first owner a Mr Hull of Maida Vale in March 2006 this, TXII generation of the famous ‘London Taxi’ by LTI is finished in black and comes to us in ‘Silver’ spec.
It has had just 2-owners, the first from 2006 until 2017 and the current since then and showed an uncommonly low mileage for a Taxi at its 2020 MOT of 143,409 mils covering c.12,000 per year for the last few years. The mileage at the most recent MOT in October this year was unreadable, the display not playing ball so we estimate it to have covered c.150,000 miles.
Under the bonnet, we find Ford’s 2.4 litre Duratorq diesel engine mated to 4-speed Jatco automatic transmission and the Taxi has the famously tight turning circle. It appears in good order considering its age/use and mileage and ran as expected when we moved it around for these shots. We did note the OSR passenger window did not operate however but the wheel chair access ramp is in the boot as pictured.
The history file includes the V5C and owners manual with 12 service stamps, the last in February 2017 at 82,168 miles by Putney Bridge Taxis, 1 old MOT and VOSA MOT history print out. The current MOT is valid until October 2022 with just 2 minor advisories recorded (check online at check-mot.service.gov.uk and enter the reg).
Ideal for slipping in and out of towns or cities anonamously - given their seating capacity for 5or so passengers, it would also make an ideal vehicle for the school run.
