Sure, said page saw a debate being started on the topic, but as we mentioned above, we can't be certain (things would probably be different if we could at least see the interior).
However, we've seen both situations over the last few years. We'll remind you of the Porsche Cayman GT4 taxi that showed up at Cars and Cofee last year, which was, most likely, a well-played trolling move.
As for an actual high-octane taxi, we used one during a trip to Austria. Despite having gone there to drive the BMW M4, we came across a Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG taxi after a day of driving. We didn't need to go anywhere at that time, so we asked Sabine, the owner and driver of the 360 hp cab, to choose the destination.
Returning to the F12, if this happens to be an actual cab, we must tell you the choice isn't half bad. For one thing, this V12 Ferrari has the kind of luggage capacity that can put many supercars and Grand Tourers to shame, being able to swallow 17.7 cubic feet (500 liters) of your stuff.
Oh, and let's not forget that, when driven in a mild manner, the F12 can be incredibly tame, as we found out during the rainy part of our review. Still, should we be dealing with an attention-seeking move, we have to admit this could be an ingenious way of one-upping an F12 Tour de France.
