The Groovy Taxi as it appeared in F-Zero AX
|First Appeared||F-Zero AX|
The Groovy Taxi is the machine driven by the passionate alien cabby: PJ. He had it put together by completely overhauling a regular interpanetary taxi in order to meet the basic standards of the F-Zero circuit. These changes were few, however, and included an extra layer of body armour, pressure-equalizing fins on either side of the trunk area, and appropriately-designed decals. Even though the Groovy Taxi may appear rather wide and clunky, it sports a surprisingly high amount of handling potential and outer trauma resistance. In order to fully immerse himself in the job he loves, PJ purposely left various components of an average taxi untouched after building his machine such as the extra three seats for paying passengers and a working fare meter that still calculates total amounts at the end of each race that it takes part in.
 F-Zero AX
In the original arcade port of the Nintendo Gamecube-released F-Zero GX, the Groovy Taxi(and pilot PJ)made it's very first appearance as a machine exclusively playable in this version of the game(it can also be unlocked in the GCN version by way of completing very hard missions in the game's Story Mode). The Groovy Taxi is a real unique machine that has been seen on the track up to this point, showing off a superior amount of control capability for it's size and an admirable amount of body strength that virtually makes this machine's lackluster boost power barely anything of a hindrance. Since this particular machine was designed by SEGA, it's more than likely that the design for the Groovy Taxi was a throwback to this company's popular Crazy Taxi series.
