Around the world, taxi’s come in all shapes and sizes. In New York for example, there are the famous yellow cabs. In London, the black cabs are instantly recognisable. Likewise, those visiting Thailand will see tuk tuk’s lining the streets everywhere and those visiting Shanghai will be greeted with hoards of VW Santana taxis.
While these vehicles are nothing out of the ordinary, there are a select few taxis scattered around the world that are anything but ordinary. These stunning vehicles are better known for being used by world famous singers, movie stars, athletes and business owners than they are for transporting people around from one place to another.
However, the following 7 vehicles are perhaps surprisingly all used as taxis somewhere in the world:
Mercedes Maybach Taxi – Moscow, Russia
Lamborghini Murcielago Taxi – Calgary, Canada
Hummer Taxi – Houston, Texas
Porsche Cayenne Taxi – Moscow, Russia
Ferrari Enzo Taxi – Muscat, Oman
Porsche Panamera Turbo Taxi – Stuttgart, Germany
Cessna 402c Aircraft Taxi – Florida, USA
It’s safe to say that anyone lucky enough to travel in one of the above taxis is sure to have quite an experience.
Realistically, for most people a taxi ride in one of the above vehicles is very unlikely. Instead, most will have to stick with the either a more conventional taxi ride or the prospect of car hire!
