Residents will soon be able to hire a Lamborghini Huracan as a taxi, after council licensing granted permission for it to be used for private hire.
The supercar is capable of reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour, and will go from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, so it’s sure to be the fastest taxi off the rank.
With most of Lincoln having a speed limit of either 30 or 40 miles per hour, the passengers will have to be content with looking good, rather than feeling the car’s full power.
Cllr Cath Brothwell, Chair of City of Lincoln Council’s Licensing Committee, said:
It is certainly an impressive vehicle and one which will no doubt turn many heads around the streets of Lincoln and beyond. People will be used to seeing cars like this in The Fast and Furious, but not so much on Firth Road and Flaxengate!
We wish the company every success with this vehicle.
