Drive the Dark Side. To promote its upcoming collection of Star Wars-themed cars, Hot Wheels partnered with Star Wars to create a life-size version of the Darth Vader car. It comes complete with a LS3 engine, 526 horsepower, lightsaber side pipes, custom red line tires and features Lord Vader’s signature heavy breathing sound. Check out the full-sized Hot Wheels Darth Vader Car at the San Diego Comic-Con 2014 on Wednesday, July 23rd.
Sadly, the real-life Sithmobile built upon a Corvette C5 chassis is just a one-off.
At Comic-Con, fans can also peruse the collection of Star Wars inspired Hot Wheels character cars and a variety of replica die-cast starships and play sets coming later this year.
