Sports car-racing fans, Top Gear fans, closet-getaway drivers unite!

Singapore e-hailing app GrabTaxi is letting users feel the adrenaline rush of riding in a Supercar until September 20.

The best thing about this promotion — which started two days ago — is that it’s absolutely free, although you can’t drive it yourself (but obviously!) and you have to consent to having your mugshot taken for commercial purposes.

Select the GrabSpeed option on the app and key in the promo code ‘GRABSPEED’ and with any luck, James Bond’s favourite Aston Martin or the classic Porsche will come zooming towards you.


The pickup point is also limited to certain areas and certain timings.

For September 17, the Supercars will only pick up users at the CBD area from 11 AM to 12 PM and from 1 PM to 5 PM.

For the other three days, they will pick up users at the town area (Tanglin, Orchard and City Hall) from 11 AM to 12 PM. From 8 PM to 12 AM, they will only pick up users at the F1 event area.

Just don’t expect Vin Diesel and his crew to show up.

With GrabTaxi’s recent string of top-dollar investment rounds, it comes as no surprise that it is splurging on lavish publicity campaigns such as this one.
