A taxi in Porto has been found to be among the cars with the most kilometres on the clock in the world.

According to motoring magazine Autosport, the Portuguese Mercedes is presently resting in a Mercedes museum in Stuttgart despite being in great shape for such a well-travelled vehicle.
The white Mercedes-Benz clocked up a massive 1.9 million kilometres during its service life, and was used as a taxi for over a decade.
However the Portuguese cab ranks only 6th on the top-ten list.
Filling the top five spots are a 1966 Mercedes Benz coupé, in 5th, with 2.06 million kilometres; a 1983 Lincoln Town Car from Kansas (US), which notched up 2.1 million kilometres placing it 4th; the 3rd most-used car in the world is a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, with 2.6 million kilometres on the clock, and in second place, a 1971 Mercedes Benz from Greece, with 4.6 million kilometres.
The car with the most kilometres on the clock in the world is a 1966 Volvo P1800, which is still owned by its original owner, and, after having undergone three engine repairs, has covered 4.8 million kilometres.
