This is an accurate reproduction of the FX4 London "Black Cab" produced by Austin, Carbodies and London Taxis International between 1958 and 1997. Rather bizarrely for such a famous vehicle, Hot Wheels gave it neither an authentically sober black, green or maroon paint job nor a wacky pink or turquoise advertising wrap (as often seen in London these days) but a livery based on ''New York's'' famous yellow cabs, complete with checks. Oh well.

This is an accurate reproduction of the FX4 London "Black Cab" produced by Austin, Carbodies and London Taxis International between 1958 and 1997. Rather bizarrely for such a famous vehicle, Hot Wheels gave it neither an authentically sober black, green or maroon paint job nor a wacky pink or turquoise advertising wrap (as often seen in London these days) but a livery based on New York's famous yellow cabs, complete with checks. Oh well.
