I just noticed this (what the ****?)


I was wondering the samething. So are they now bringing those cars to the United States? I haven't seen them yet, and I surely would not buy one.

It seems that someone here enjoyed both Manhattan and Queens.

London taxis are infinitely superior to what American cab companies operate. You wouldn't believe me until you've ridden in one, but you have a LOT more space. I'm 6'1" and I can stretch my legs out straight sitting in the back without touching the driver's seat.

And yes, they are bringing them to certain American cities (New York, Boston, Chicago, i.e. the ones with lots of roaming cabs) as the cab companies overhaul their fleets. Ford bought the British company that makes them, and they were approved sometime in the last year for U.S. roads...
