Over the weekend I came out of a restaurant at night and spotted a black cab so stepped out to wave it down - only to realise it was a Rolls Royce Cullinan.

Based on the owners gestures he clearly wasn't amused, but what were Rolls Royce thinking of launching a car that looks so similar to a black cab.

It would be a bit ironic if Geely, the Chinese maker of the black cabs took Rolls Royce to court for producing a copycat vehicle.
