Taxi drivers in Cancún are hoping a fleet of a “super-luxury” exotic cars on demand will help lure high-rolling tourists away from Uber in the Mexican city.
The “super-luxury service” will debut on 1 April through the Quiero Taxi Exótico app, (I Want an Exotic Taxi) and will let users pick from a selection of sports cars, including Lamborghinis, Ferraris and a vintage Mercedes-Benz 300 SL with butterfly doors.
“It’s key for competing openly against the transnational Uber, in spite of the fact the said company cannot operate in this city because it would cause anarchy in public transportation,” the Andrés Quintana Roo Taxi Union, which operates the Quiero Taxi Exótico app, said in a statement.
Rolling in my Uber, that’s just how I use my time
Blowing on that Backwood, that’s just how I use my mind
Looking out the window, hoping it all would be fine
Pay no mind, they don’t pay no mind, yeah yeah yeah
