The film Taxi, having appeared on the world screens, immediately made a splash. Luc Besson showed that films about cars can be not only pretentious, spectacular, but also funny. The painting gave us the image of a car that we recognize among hundreds of other cars. The legendary Peugeot 406 with numerous bells and whistles is what evokes positive emotions even now, 16 years after the release of the first part of the franchise.
The Peugeot 406 is a super popular car that comes in the form of a sedan, station wagon and coupe. There were many variations of the car: with a gasoline and diesel engine, different gearboxes. The automaker has restyled several times.
The Peugeot 406 is by no means an expensive luxury car. A five-year-old copy will cost you no more than 10-15 thousand dollars. And the car's characteristics are not impressive: it is equipped with a three-liter engine with a capacity of 207 horsepower. This car is designed for unhurried city trips, but not for high-speed races.
Nevertheless, Daniel managed to turn this car into a real thunderstorm of the roads from the motion picture. We all remember the scene where the famous taxi accelerated to 306 km / h. Of course, in real life, the Peugeot 406 will not surrender such a mark.
The Peugeot 406 was already a legend in the automotive industry. The painting by Luc Besson cemented this status of the model. Who among us does not say “yes this is the same car from the movie” when we see a car on the road?
