Car transfer from gate to passport control

Arrived at LHR this morning from JFK traveling in First and was met at the gate and taken in a Jaguar to passport control along with another passenger.

The lady who met us said this was a new trial starting today for flights from New York. Both myself and the other passenger are GGL but she said it was targeted at Gold card holders.

First was full so I'm not sure we were the only passengers with status but anyway it was a nice enhancement and quicker than the usual train ride.

Not sure if anyone has details of exactly who is targeted or how wide this will be rolled out?

Have a look at the discussion in these threads (most reports have involved terminal to terminal or gate to gate transfers):
BA Premium Transfer Drive
Tarmac Transfers
Jaguar transfer tight connections
'Premium car transfers' ; whats this?
'New" BA transfer service @ LHR / T5?

I have yet to be offered this service.
