Our man in NYC (well Brooklyn, to be precise, and not annoy him), just let us know about the Gypsy Cab Project, a PR jolly that Volkswagen USA instigated to try and discover what it is that makes city driving a unique experience (and sell some cars). They gave a chap called Steve a black MK5 Rabbit with some rather snazzy yellow livery, and he set about giving anyone - who was brave enough to jump in - a free ride to their destination, in exchange for an insight into there thoughts.

He grabbed a few quick ‘n’ dirty phonecam pics for us whilst out in search of a nice cup of lapsang souchong last night…
