"Most Wanted" taxi hits Sydney streets

02 Nov 2012

Sydney-siders have been travelling in style for the last couple of weeks thanks to EA Australia and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

A specially fitted out Lamborghini Gallardo has been transformed into the world’s first “Most Wanted” taxi. The supercab has been turning heads all week when spotted driving folks around Sydney CBD.

The car has been burning up Sydney’s streets since Monday and will continue to do so until this coming Saturday.

Hopefully we will see something similar in Auckland or Wellington next time; what do you say, EA?

Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the high octane racing game from the creators of the award-winning Burnout series, was released this week on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.

A mobile version of the game for PlayStation Vita, Android and Apple devices is also available.
