This is Probably the Coolest Taxi in the World

If you’re ever visiting Odda, Norway, you may want to give “Blue Lightning” a call if you ever need a taxi.

Cabbie Evald Jåstad drives one of the most unique taxi cabs we’ve ever seen – a modified Ford Focus RS that has earned the nickname “Blue Lightning” in Odda. Visitors to the Trolltunga cliffs are in for a treat if they call for a cab and Jåstad picks them up, considering the Focus RS is capable of going zero-to-62 mph in 4.7 seconds. Jåstad even has some regular customers that look forward to riding in Blue Lightning.

The 36-year-old father of two has covered nearly 79,000 miles (127,000 kilometers) in just 18 months in the Focus RS, shuttling people around Odda in style. But each day starts with a trip to the local nursery to drop off his son, Martin. “When I drive him to the nursery, all the way there, Martin shouts out ‘Bånn gass! Bånn gass! – More gas! More gas!” said Jåstad.

Ford even shared a silly little chart comparing the Ford Focus RS to other traditional taxis in terms of 0-62 mph time, top speed, engine, power, and special feature. Needless to say, a London TX4 Taxi and a Toyota Prius are downright boring compared to the Focus RS.
