Here on Autotrader Find, my goal is to highlight the strangest cars on Autotrader. Today, I have certainly done that. This is a 2014 Nissan NV200 van, painted in New York City taxi livery. It has tremendously low miles for a taxi. And it's for sale at a used-car dealership in Northern Kentucky.

This 2014 Nissan NV200 features all the correct New York City taxi details, including the light on top, the lighted signs in the back doors, the New York City taxi logos, the vinyl rear seats and the central partition. It even has a hole in the hood where the medallion would go, covered by a plug. In other words, this is the real deal.

Except it isn't. In place of a New York City taxi number, this NV200 has the number 2013. It only has 18,000 miles on the odometer, which is usually about 3 months of driving for a New York City taxi, not 2 years. Oh, and the other obvious giveaway that this isn't really a New York City taxi: It's for sale at a dealership in Kentucky.

Offered by Northern Kentucky Auto Sales in the Cincinnati suburb of Wilder, Kentucky, I suspect this 2014 NV200 was a promotional vehicle for Nissan to try to convince local governments to adopt the van as the Taxi of Tomorrow. If that's true, it worked, as New York City did select the NV200 as its taxi -- though the entire Taxi of Tomorrow thing has faced numerous legal challenges and was never fully implemented.

Still, if you've ever wanted to feel like a New York City cabbie -- without occupational hazards such as being spit on or listening to drunk people loudly attempt to use FaceTime -- this is your chance. This 2014 NV200 is available for $16,995.
