Just before filming was supposed to begin, director Gérard Pirès fell off a horse and needed to stay in hospital for a few weeks. During this time Gérard Krawczyk (who would later direct the sequels Taxi 2 (2000) and Taxi 3 (2003)) filled in on-set while Pirès watched the dailies at the end of each day to check on the progress of filming.

When Émilien puts the police light on top of the car, he closes the door on the wire. When he pulls it back inside the car, he pulls it through the window, which he shouldn't be able to do. See more »

It's got style and it's got speed.
