2015 Hot Wheels Speed Test: Cockney Cab II

Need to get somewhere fast? Hailing the Cockney Cab II will be the best bet. Unlike the traditional London Taxis, this custom version features a super tuned rear V8 engine to power down the cobblestone lanes. The Cockney Cab II is actually based on the world-famous but now-discontinued FX4 "Black Cab" built from 1958 to 1997 by various manufacturers, originally Austin and most recently London Taxis International. The FX4's replacement, the TX series shares the FX4's distinctive silhouette but is a completely new vehicle. Hot Wheels began producing the Cockney Cab II in 2005.  The 2015 version weighs in at 38 grams. For it's official timed run it finished in 1.8871 seconds.  Check out the video below and then click here to see how it matches up against the other cars from 2015.
