The London Taxi Corporation Ltd (trading as The London Taxi Company; formerly Manganese Bronze Holdings plc) is an automotive engineering company headquartered in Coventry, United Kingdom, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Chinese automaker Geely. It was founded in 1899 and its principal activity is the design, development and production of taxicabs. Over 130,000 London black cabs have been produced at the London Taxi Company's Coventry site over the past 60 years. Annual production averaged between 2,000 and 2,500 units per year. Around two-thirds of production goes into London via a dealership in Islington.
This London Taxi is a one owner vehicle and was used by a London hotel very sparingly, hence the 17,000 miles covered in eight years. She is finished in blue with a white roof and is trimmed in tan leather throughout, including the driver's seat. Fitted with the very long legged Mercedes-Benz 2.5 litre diesel engine, this Taxi has automatic transmission and as always with these vehicles they are easy to drive and offer great versatility. Presenting in virtually unmarked condition with a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 27th June 2019, this is a unique opportunity to purchase a well trimmed and low mileage London Taxi TX4.
