Think of London and a few things are certain to pop into your mind, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Beefeaters and Black Taxis. The good old Hackney Carriage, the shape has barely changed and the concept never will, jump in, say where you want to be and arrive in relative luxury! Now imagine that your taxi had a 5.2-liter V10 that produces 570 bhp under the hood! Imagine no more, Pure Rally have done just that.
Meet the gorgeous Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Performante that is now a fully licensed Black TAXI! To celebrate the launch of Pure Rally, the new super car rally experience for party loving petrol heads, London’s first ever Lamborghini taxi was launched on Wednesday 23rd April 2014 and was dubbed the ‘Lambo cab.’ The taxi’s first passenger of the day was glamour model, beauty queen and television personality Imogen Thomas who was picked up from The Mayfair Hotel in central London.
Having dropped of the VIP passenger the Italian supercar cruised the streets of Knightsbridge picking up a few lucky passengers from very ordinary taxi ranks where it certainly struggled to fit in, even with its classic London taxi light! We sure hope this is not the last venture of its kind!
