Hindustan Ambassador - World's Best Taxi

As you all know, the maker of India's Ambassador car has suspended production, citing debt and lack of demand for the iconic vehicle which came to define the country's political class. 
The good old Hindustan Ambassador car was voted as the world’s best taxi in the Beaulieu’s World of Top Gear, a global automotive programme aired on the BBC in 2013. The Top Gear-organised show saw India’s Amby beat its competitors from all over the world.
The Hindustan Ambassador was a car manufactured by Hindustan Motors of India. It has been in production since 1958 with few improvements or changes and is based on the Morris Oxford III model, first made by the Morris Motors Limited at Cowley, Oxford in the United Kingdom from 1956 to 1959. Despite its British origins, the Ambassador is considered as a definitive Indian car and is fondly called "The grand old lady of Indian roads". Some prominent Indian politicians, such as Sonia Gandhi, use the Hindustan Ambassador. It reigned the Indian roads till the arrival of the Maruti in the 1980s and later the other global competitors.
Though on a steady decline (only 3,390 units sold in 2012-13), it continued to be the favourite of taxi operators and government officials.
