Kumiko, Your Taxi Is Here

pink-taxi.jpg

The latest cab to roll off the production line of Coventry firm LTI Vehicles isn’t so much back in black as pretty in pink.

The staff at the Holyhead Road manufacturer received an order for one of their new TX4 cabs but the London-based customer had one condition – it had to be in candyfloss pink.

Steve Everton the Cell Leader said: “We laughed when we first got the order but immediately got to work mixing the colours. We’re really pleased with the final result and it’s created a real stir in the factory. I dare say it will create a stir on the streets of London as well.”

This is the first pink cab the factory has every produced (will it be the last?). The cab joins the ranks of other famous pink cars, such as Lady Penelope’s FAB 1 and the pink Cadillac from the Clint Eastwood film of the same name.

From inspecting of the above photo, it looks like the interior is still taxi black. That’s good because while I don’t mind riding in a pink taxi, I draw the line on a pink interior! However, I’m sure Kumiko would love a pink taxi that is pink inside.

        I would, what’s the big deal? It’s just pink. If I’ve got to get somewhere, I’ve got to get somewhere 🙂

      2. well, if you need one urgently, why would you care what color it is.

    :mrgreen:

  8. LOL if it wasn’t made of metal, I’d say it’s good enough to eat! During a trip to Bangkok last year, I’ve seen my share of pink cabs…quite a few of them actually.

  9. wow… that’s pink.

    1. I believe only Paris Hilton and Kumiko will enjoy that car… however, since Paris will be in jail.. it’s Kumiko’s turn. LOL

  10. I would buy a car like this, pimp it up a little bit – and my sweet ride is ready 👿

    Ladies… watch out! 😎

  11. Steve Yu says:

    how much is this taxi costs? I bet Kumiko wants to buy it. She has earned over $500 from blogging… so how much she need to buy the pink taxi 😀

    1. John Chow says:

      I’m sure it cost more than $500.

      1. Kumiko says:

        BEST…TAXI…EVER!!!!

        Haha!!! I love it!! Will you buy it for me?

      2. SEO Forums says:

        Nah shes fine, it seen it advertised for $450

        Per 10 mile taxi trip 😉

      3. I don’t think so…
        She will get that “pinkie” for free at “Pimp My Ride”
        LOL

        😳
        Angie

  12. It hurts! my eyes! they’re burning. All pink…

  13. WELL.

    THAT’S KUMIKO PINK 😀

    HAROON

  14. …and still no Kumiko…

    The pink taxi is a really good idea. Sets them apart from the standard white, black, and yellow.

    1. Marc says:

      Yep, easy to find that one to flag it down.

  15. James says:

    lol thats one ugly taxi

    1. Marc says:

      I agree but it’s got nothing to do with the colour. I find the body styling to be quite terrible. I’m sure it’s nice and traditional, but it just isn’t very pretty.

  16. msdanielle says:

    that thing is awesome. i ain’t afraid to admit i’m a girl that loves pink too! 😀

  17. uncle sha says:

    too bright of a color for me 😯

    probably ‘blind’ me the moment it pick me up, haha

  18. Chicago 2016 says:

  19. Louiss says:

    This is not my car…I need a MC Laren… cough* john chow, please help..cough* me buy please…!?cough*

  20. green says:

    I hate this color :mrgreen:

  21. i wish toronto gets some of these pink cabs:)

  22. No offense to Kumiko, but you can’t forget about Ms. Danielle. PinkDeals. I’m sure there are more than enough pink taxis to go around.

  23. James says:

    I’m not sure I would want to ride in a pink taxi if I had a choice.
    Hope there is no offense Kumiko. 🙂

  24. I like pink, but I don’t think I like it enough on an automobile. 😆

  25. That is a pimp ride there.

  26. Deb says:

    They have a hot pink car like this that does pizza delivery down in Beach Haven! It sure does get your attention.

  27. Ivan says:
