Re: London Taxi spied in Pune

I had seen one in white at the Marriott hotel on SB Road. I reckon people in Pune will see them on road soon enough[:)]

OT - In london, it is advisable (for travelling indians) to not take rides from these taxis as they are most expensive [glasses]

Good click. Similar cars were seen earlier as well in Pune but this one looks much better in white. Wonder they are here for?

Re: London Taxi Spotted in Pune

This was a regular cab, when i dropped my wife and was on the way to my office, this car overtook me with passengers inside. So its doing a regular taxi business in pune it seems, it was spewing horrendous amount of black smoke. Bad Diesel! or bad driver!

It is the original one
I have more pics of the same spotted at laxmi road .
It is owned by Marriott group of hotels.
And Drive saab was quiet helpful and polite guess what he allowed me to capture interior also.

Will post the pic soon as I do not have access in Office and yes this London taxi roam in and around hinjewadi area,
Of course it is here in pune for business purpose. Transportation of guests / visitors from Marriot.
This particular beauty has (T) permit.

{Bad Diesel! or bad driver! }
Driver was very good and seems quiet knowledgeable at least the one I met.[:)]

Re: London Taxi Spotted in Pune

In London these are all black in color and they are specifically called as Black Cabs. I was lucky to get a ride in one of them when I was there in Jan 2009. I have pic of one of the black cab with Kingfisher airlines add will post it soon.
They have a light on the roof, if that light is on then the taxi is available for Hire.

Notice the black cab in Black, and London Cops super bikes.

I also spotted Alto and Swift in London, but without Maruti Badge, they had only Suzuki badge. Was able to click alto from rear. Since these Brits are very particular, avoided to click from front.

Black cabs. It has a spacious rear seat with plenty of legroom.

They are called 'London Taxi' only. And I am guessing that engine is new.
They are also called as London Taxi. But the most common name is Black cabs. We have them in Glasgow and other UK cities. And yes, they are quite expensive.
