Description

Need to get somewhere fast? Hailing the Cockney Cab II will be the best bet. Unlike the traditional London Taxis, this custom version features a super tuned rear V8 engine to power down the cobblestone lanes. Book reservations now as they are filling up fast! (Actual speed may vary based on weather and local traffic conditions.)

The Cockney Cab II is actually based on the world-famous but now-discontinued FX4 "Black Cab" built from 1958 to 1997 by various manufacturers, originally Austin and most recently London Taxis International. The FX4's replacement, the TX series shares the FX4's distinctive silhouette but is a completely new vehicle.

The Cockney Cab II's roof-mounted "air scoop" is the subject of a rare and amusing error - on the real vehicle, this feature is actually a hooded orange lamp with the word "TAXI" written on it, illuminated when the cab is available for hire. In early First Edition examples, this has a correctly-positioned orange patch on it - later ones being simply black. A few examples have the "scoop" fitted facing backwards, so that if it was a real taxi, prospective passengers would not be able to hail it until it had passed them!

In 2006 the tool got a little update. The 2005-version had a blank license plate, but the 2006-version's has "Liv 2 Guv" casted in the license plate area. In 2015 the casting got updated again: the hood scoop is now part of the body instead of being a seperate piece.
