The Yellow Cab that runs around in Los Angeles in the movie “Blade Runner” is “Metrokab”.
However, the prototype Metrokab designed by Syd Mead is different in the shape from the movie version Metrokab.
There are three major differences between the Syd Mead’s Metrokab and the movie’s one.
- Cockpit shape
The cockpit of the Sid Mead version Metrokab has a complex shape with the left side cut at an angle. Also, the driver’s flont window is a bigger than the movie version window.
- Bumper shape
The bumpers of the Sid Mead version Metrokab are smoothly joined with the body line.
- Size of the side door
The side door of the Sid Mead version Metrokab is a big one that covers the side of Metorkab.
