Trident gave a few unsuspecting taxi passengers the ride of their lives in Guadalajara. In a promotion for the company's new Twist gum, Trident swapped out one taxi company's standard Nissan Sentra/Tsuru cabs with a Ferrari F430 Spider and a Porsche Panamera. Both vehicles were suitably decked out in yellow with a field of checkers. The cabs even came equipped with all the right lights to be legal, though seeing a cabbie wearing a full-on race helmet would give us a moment's pause before hopping in inside.

We're a bit surprised to see just how quickly these performance machines darted around town, though this isn't the first time we've seen wild taxi rides. As you may recall, Red Bull released Scott Speed and his NASCAR racer on Chicago for a little high-octane fun not too long ago. Hit the jump to see the Ferrari and Porsche frolic through the streets of Guadalajara.

      One of the COOOOOOLEST videos I have seen in a while... absolutely love it, and I firmly believe this is the best proposal possible for a solution on how to end texting while driving... allow people to actually DRIVE!!

      Awesomeness. Their seat belt usage is nearly nonexistent. Last time I went there, I instantly put on my seat belt upon sitting on the seat like ANYBODY here in america and they saw me like some sort of robot brainwashed by america. I was like, go to hell, it's my life.

      wtf? about 50% of those people did not use the safety belts -.- sime people are just plain stupid and it is kinda annoying in the panamera (or is the chime not active on US models?)

        Naaaa, in Mexico lawsuits don't proceed with ease like in the US.

          True. The only thing that moves fast in Mexico are baby doctors, smugglers and illegals crossing the U.S. border.

          @stclair5211 You must be an ignorant Hillbilly. First, smugglers move fast because the US society especially Hollywood and teenagers have an uncontrollable craving for drugs, and second, illegals crossing the border has been plunging significantly the last 5 years, it doesn't hurt at all to read what's going on around the world once in a while !

      Guadalajara? Hope they were followed around by a truckload of heavily-armed bodyguards.

      Excessive zooming sounds = huge turn off They're clearly put in every 5 seconds for no reason.

      If the police managed to catch up to these "taxis", all the driver would have to do is pay the cop(s) $10 to leave them alone. Personal experience.
