A BLACK Cab fit for a king has been created by luxury car specialist Clive Sutton with a price tag of more than £100,000.
Appointed like a private jet for the road, the driver and passenger compartments of the LEVC taxi have been completely overhauled by the London-based Sutton Bespoke team.
The cab had its debut at the Salon Prive event at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire where it was shown with more than £15,000 worth of extras taking the price of the show vehicle to £121,480.
The regular Sutton VIP cab is priced from £104,680.
Clive Sutton, the company founder and chief executive, said: "Our Sutton VIP LEVC Taxi enables the most comfortable, spacious and private journey through the city with extravagant features usually reserved for superyachts and private jets."
The Sutton Bespoke team has revealed multiple configurations in which the Coventry-produced taxi can be ordered with a choice of four, three, or even an ultra-spacious two-seat set-up with a drinks fridge, on-board WiFi and Bluetooth as standard.
Privacy can be upgraded as part of an optional exterior package that includes smoke-tinted rear windows, while onboard entertainment can include a PlayStation or Xbox with a console connected to a 20-inch media screen that is incorporated within a leather-clad divider, which separates the front and rear compartments.
Compared to a regular Black Cab the Sutton conversion comes with thick-pile carpet, an ambient lighting system and hand-crafted wood veneers taking the vehicle to new levels of opulence.
Sutton Bespoke, which is based in St Johns Wood, has an established selection of premium of VIP vehicles including high-spec conversions of Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and people carriers.
