When just a young boy Anakin Skywalker used to spend his days racing around Tatooine in a Podracer, but as he grew older and visibly much darker in nature he deserved to ride about in something a little more refined. Cue the ‘Darth Car’, a creation from Hot Wheels and Star Wars that’s being shown off at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
The car is life-sized and houses an LS3 engine boasting 526 horsepower. The car also sits on custom red line tyres and comes complete with Darth’s famous heavy breathing sounds. The car is there to promote a new line of Hot Wheels cars inspired by characters from the Star Wars universe.
All it needs is a couple of fins on the back and you’ve got yourself a Batmobile
