This definitely isn't the fastest taxi in the world, sidindica. There is an Enzo Taxi somewhere in the Middle east. There are also Muricelago taxis in Dubai. Will have to dig for the pictures though!

That Ferrari taxi in Kerala must be a import, registered as a commercial vehicle as yellow plates just to avoid duty. This Panamera posted here by sidindica is radio cab.

Still they may never be able to match the delivery times the rash suicidal delivery boys on their 100cc sub 10bhp engine bikes, who risk their lives to deliver us Pizza on time.

@sidindica: You created a thread calling it the world's fastest taxi just because the video title says so?!
