On my last visit to Auto Expo I saw some real luxury taxis.

Jaguar XF was the one I think Mr.Tata arrived at Expo.

7er is the taxi of Hotel Shangrila & spotted it from CP.

VW was there in front of the Hotel where I satyed & I was told that some VW officials are staying there & it came to pick them.

Toyota Coaster was there at Expo to tranport Merc staffs & models. I've also seen it on the way to Agra, may be the fleet have more such bus!

Same here at bangalore, but I suppose these have been rented from hertz. BtW the hertz parking lot close to adugodi has numerous C200's. The parking lot is on the road between adugodi and koramangla.

also there is a BMW 5 series running on taxi plates , see it very often near my house at ejipur

@hanmust

Is that (picture 1 , post no #46) a VW Touran ? If yes, then has it been touched by Dilip Chhabria ? Looks like he has started modifying VW's as well. The modification does look a lot like DC design Tempo traveller

That is a VW Crafter, and it hasn't been modified.

Then by any chance that DC did a design consulting for VW .
This VW looks really weird and it qualifies for our weird and wacky thread

Default S320 Taxis

Spotted these two S320 Taxis on Hosur Road.
The driver came out when I was clicking the pics and I got seriously scared but, he came out just to see something on the driver side door panel.
Clicked happily and the rode away from there!

No offence, but to my mind, Luxury hire-cars like BMWs can't be compared to Economy PP Cabs.
I'm talking about 'now & then'.
