Video: Harris drives the TG Live taxi!

evo's Chris Harris has an exclusive drive in the Top Gear Live taxi - and he's got a very reluctant passenger...

Yes, it's a old-school black cab - but one with a difference. This is very special taxi that will be starring in this year's Top Gear Live. it might look like a standard FX4 taxi, but underneath the surface lies a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII FQ-360 which has been specificially set up for low-speed drifting.

Chris Evans has already been given a ride in it - driven by some bloke in a white race suit we didn't quite recognise. And when evo's Chris Harris was offered a chance to put it through its paces, without going south of the river of course, he jumped at the chance.
