The London Taxi Company (LTC) has commissioned Bradford-based design house Kahn Design to create a run of bespoke versions of its TX4 cab, which goes out of production this year.
Called the Last of Line Edition Black Cab, the final model is described as a ‘reimagined’ and more luxurious version of the TX4. It will herald the launch of the TX4’s successor, a new range-extender electric cab that’s zero-emissions capable in order to conform to new London legislation that comes into force in 2018.
Released sketches suggest the Last of Line Edition will mix modern design with classic black taxi features. These include wing mirrors, a larger front grille and classic headlights. The cabs will also be significantly more luxurious that regular cabs and be created for collectors rather than service in the city.
