Afzal Kahn-designed TX4 Last of Line Edition cab revealed

Rolls-Royce-inspired flourishes mark run-out, five-unit special before electric model takes over

Afzal Kahn’s TX4 Last of Line Edition has been revealed, with Rolls-Royce-inspired features making the car far more luxurious than its passenger-ferrying standard form. Only five will be made.

Inside, the car gets quilted nappa leather upholstery, bespoke door sills, a piano black instrument binnacle, privacy glass and leather trim across the cabin. The seatbelts are finished in a matching colour.

The headlining is finished with a Rolls-Royce-inspired Starlight feature. Badging marking out the model’s limited production run features throughout.

Under the bonnet, the TX4’s standard 100bhp 2.5-litre diesel engine has been given a bump in power. The TX4’s signature grille has been replaced by a slatted grille in the style of Rolls-Royce‘s signature piece. Revised performance figures haven’t yet been released by Kahn.

The exterior remains largely unchanged, although its standard black paintwork is upgraded to a choice of five colours from the Rolls-Royce palette, with a two-tone finish. The wheels are also finished in black but are the TX4’s original wheels.

«While it is sad to see a beautiful, iconic vehicle reach the end of its life, it is a great honour to redesign and celebrate what is truly one of the most famous cars in the world,» said Kahn. «I look forward to embarking on a journey with a select few clients who wish to own their own piece of British history.»

Three of the five cars have already been sold, with the remaining two owners being hand-picked by Kahn.
