I think it isn't a model year 1994, when it start as called "E 500", but an older model 1990 called "500 E":

The most stolen car in the history of the German insurance-branch. "Most" means the number of stolen cars, compared with the number of registrated ones. I don't know, the exact quote, but it was immense, perhaps 40% or so.


The lowest theft-quote of all cars ever running in Germany has that company: /vehicles.php?make=proton&model=
The statistic probability, that such a car would be stolen is 0,000001 % :D

I've picked out the 500 E, because I got idea, that the remark "made for" we also can wide on companies, not only on countries. This would be an example for it, as eykey47 wrote.

Pos SX

2007-12-16 18:20

iant it when they rob a bank or something. The red one get spray painted another colour then at the end they have a race with the peugeot. Naturally being a movie the far superior mercs get beaten by the souped up peugeot

Yeah, I'd like to know this as well. I love the red version! The first picture (top left) in antp's post is pretty clear. Try and ask on forums, maybe someone will know. And which spoiler is fitted?

It seems to be a pretty easy car to replicate. All you need is a 500 E (not E 500!) resprayed in 568 Signal Red (original Mercedes paint available on the W124), rear spoiler, alloy wheels, window tint and clear front indicators. If you want to do it 100% right you swap the original V8 for a straight-6 because in the movie the red version always has the sound of a 300 E and the silver ones sound like the original 500 E V8 ;)

I just found this silver 500 E which supposedly is one of the used movie cars: http://ww3.autoscout24.nl/classified/274150443?asrc=st|as http://carvintage.fr/wp/?vehicle=mercedes-e500-film-taxi

My French is not good but from Google Translate I got that the car was still equipped with the rear wing but that was removed when the car was restored. Also it says the car is tuned up to about 364 hp.

Is this real? Could it be one of the real movie 500 E's? I've always wondered what happened to them.

DIAL is a brand that does OEM wheels for more auto manufakturers,also for older Porsche and Alfa Romeo!

The wheels are the Triomphe model. They were manufactured by Dial in France, and it appears that they were distributed in the USA by König. I am unable to find any other source from the 1990s. Dial's inactive website (jantes-dial.com) and its archived pages do not have anything related to this model.

hi guys, i saw that many of you would like to make a replica of these mercedes, just like me.
now below I put some links where you can find the material needed to build your w124 taxi 1

500E body kit. you can find them on various sites:
https://mbbodykits.com/collections/w124/products/w124-e500-widebodykit

white side marker lights (for red w124 on the film): you can find it on internet

Wheels. The rims on the film are Dial triomphe, and you can find it on this site:
http://www.nashashina.com.ua/diski/dial/dial_triomphe.html
remember! the wheels in the film were 16 inches (i think)

Rear spoiler!!! to find this spoiler I really searched everywhere. and i found that it can be found on some peugoet 406 bodykits!
https://www.comptoirdutuning.fr/406-995/spoiler-av-pe-406-quartz-81295.html

https://www.comptoirdutuning.fr/406-995/spoiler-av-pe-406coupe-2l-f-81361.html
really very very similar to those of the film. or maybe it's them

well guys, i should be done. if any of you were to make one of these 2 cars, write me here in the forum and send your photos, I'm really curious
see you next time!🤗

i have a important question,wher say the cars are 500??in movie they dont say and cars have no badges of engine filming

tore-40 NO

2023-03-03 14:44

@steeeel: They were meant to be sleepers, so the question is indeed relevant.

Most obvious are the wheel arches, they are wider than the original. I addition, their opening when viewed from the side is also rounder than original.

Please check again, I hope this will help you.

tore-40 NO

2023-03-04 15:12

It's unlikely they used 500Es for all the cars, there were body kit available for a fraction of the price. The numberplates are swapped among cars, headlamps are some 500E and some regular ones, fogs are not always present, some panels are badly fitted. No inside view?

It's movie magic, they make us see what they want us to. Or hear. I'm not even sure the main car is genuine.

@AleX_DJ or @dhill_cb7 - what do you think?

2023-03-04 16:12

More than likely a Fast and Furious scenario way before that movie was filmed. I believe the black civics had 7 used for filming. All different trim levels and years. All made to look alike. Very possible this film did the same and grabbed a bunch of W124, dressed some up, and possibly used a genuine version.

Without plate details I wouldn’t add a model name as specific as we have listed.

*However, I have not studied the W124 so my knowledge is as good as your average joe.*

Very difficult to tell, as explained by tore-40 body kits are available, only by feel I'm suspecting the red ones are not genuine, while the silver ones seem more likely :think:

There were some real 500E on the set, and of course some w124 used for Stunts/Crash were basic w124. one was used as a camera car in a lot of movies, and fun fact one of the 500 was used in his Taxi movie configuration a few months later on the set of the film Ronin for tow robert de niro's peugeot 406 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1k8c7hXLJo and after that they painted it in black and used it for 10 years straight.

Gérard Krawczyk who filmed some Part of the first one - and directed Taxi 2-3-4 explained that he had bought one of the 500 of the film, and he say that the car had big suspension problems and a big mileage. After he bought it, the 500 was stolen on the set.

He explains this in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySnkJXZqQYU , unfortunately it's in French, you have to understand French.


and in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OadDD_bFxt4 at 1:55 they show one of the basic w124 used for stunt/crash In the first movie and also used in a scene from Taxi 2

1991 model according to the steering wheel in the movie as seen here:[Image: taxi1998.jpg]
In fact Rowan Atkinson had one it was a 91' bought brand new months as the model line came into dealerships and it had the same wheel you can see it in gallery here Link to "www.topgear.com"
No question the car was a early model 500e. Later cars all had nice mate steering wheel with the same colored logo and an airbag letering in the middle. It could be possible tho that the car left the factory in early 92' as the last of the 91' model cars built hence the 92' tag. Also possible its a genuine 91' but first registered in 92' and maybe somebody mixed up the model year and registration year. Now weather they only had one 500 for beauty shots and several 400's for stunts is debeatable.
