Taxi! Dubai cab fleet gets Lamborghini, Ferrari boost
If you are in the city, get dropped off in style as Dubai’s taxi service celebrates the Dubai Motor Festival with Rolls Royce, Ferrari and Lamborghini cabs offering free rides between November 19 and December 6.
The service is set to operate on the weekends of November 21-22, 28-29 and December 5-6 and organizers say the luxury taxis will be deployed at high footfall areas such as tourist hotspots and malls and will offer one-way free rides to lucky passengers.
“The Supercar Taxis will offer tourists and residents a dream experience like no other. The idea behind this was to celebrate people’s passion for motoring,” said Jin Chwen Ong, director of the Dubai Motor Festival, according to The National newspaper.
“This is the first of its kind in the world and we want to engage the community. Gauging the response we get, we may extend the experience beyond the weekends it will be available,” he added.
Dubai is no stranger to top model cars with a specialized super car fleet of police cars – including Lamborghinis, Mercedes, Bentleys, Buggatis and Ferraris – and the inclusion of a Lotus in its ambulance fleet.
