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.
The London Taxi has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
