Meet Evald Jåstad – the Norwegian cabbie who drives a high-performance Ford Focus RS.
In just 18 months Evald has clocked up an impressive 79,000 miles (127,000km) in his Focus RS, which is capable of 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 166mph.
Regulars have nicknamed the car “Blue Lightning” thanks to the Focus RS’s 345bhp 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine.
The first job of the day for Evald is a 10-mile round-trip from Odda through breathtaking Scandinavian scenery to take his son Martin to nursery before locals and tourists call on him to take them across the Trolltunga cliffs, in style.
“There are not many people who can say they live their dream, but I am definitely one of them,” says the 36-year-old father‑of‑two.
“When I drive him to nursery, all the way there, Martin shouts out ‘Bånn gass! Bånn gass! – More gas! More gas!”
