The Kaufman Cab is a taxi in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The Kaufman Cab is based on the game's Cabbie, which is used by the Kaufman Cabs company in Little Haiti. The vehicle only differs to the Cabbie by having the "Kaufman Cabs" livery on its sides, as well as receiving a different in-game name.

Prior to the Kaufman Cabs missions, the Kaufman Cab has a standard radio; after completing all of the asset missions, however, a dispatch radio is heard, with Kaufman Cabs dispatcher Doris communicating with the other drivers.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The Kaufman Cab differs from the standard Cabbie (run by Vice City Cabs) only in its weight (the Kaufman Cab is lighter, giving it better acceleration) and its engine sound (unlike the Cabbie, it emits the sound of a high-performance engine — nonetheless, it has the same top speed).
