The Star Wars franchise was born in 1977 in a galaxy far, far away, but over the past four decades the magnum opus franchise has managed to capture the fantasy of the whole world and perhaps a few galaxies in between with its iconic characters, a massive set of amazing pieces and stories. For many, the Star Wars franchise was an integral part of their childhood long before the MCU and DCEU came to life on celluloid. To commemorate the success of the George Lucas films, the world celebrates May 4th every year as Star Wars Day.

Nissan Altima Special Forces TIE Fighter

1. Nissan Altima Special Forces TIE Fighter

In 2017, Nissan partnered with Lucasfilm for the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The collaboration saw the brand order six Star Wars-themed cars which were then shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show that same year. Although these were only concepts, they were exciting in every way.

The first car on this list is the Nissan Altima Special Forces TIE Fighter. The special unique concept that has achieved a full body wrap with the red and black color palette. The car also has custom wheels, all inspired by the two-seater TIE fighter.

The Nissan Titan received a custom wrap and 12-inch lift kit, but the addition of the stormtroopers alongside the pickup added more feel to the concept.

2. The Nissan Titan Stormtrooper

Next, Nissan prepped the Star Wars-inspired Titan AT-M6 which was themed around Stormtroopers. The pickup was first-order equipped with a custom wrap, 12-inch life kit, and a bunch of heavy guns. There was also an 18-inch subwoofer mounted on the bed to mimic the heavy-footed gait of the walker.

The Fiat 500e Stormtrooper Edition is stylish and something Star Wars fans can try out at home

3. Fiat 500e Stormtrooper Edition

While Nissan stole the show that year, Fiat also caused a stir with the Star Wars-themed 500th at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Stormtrooper-inspired electric 500 was decorated in a palette of two-tone black and white colors that also extended to the cabin. It was also quite classy in every way. Well done Fiat!

The Hellcat Stormtrooper was used as an Uber for a day.

4. Hellcat Stormtrooper

There have been a bunch of Stormtrooper-inspired cars, but the one that really came close to being the First Order was this Dodge Charger. Entered into service in 2015, the car was built by Hot Wheels and Uber and offered public rides to residents of Manhattan, New York in the United States. The Dodge Charger Hellcat in the guise of Stormtrooper also hit toy stores with Hot Wheels showing off a 1:64 scale model.

5. Nissan Altima Kylo Ren Edition

This Nissan Altima was also at the LA Auto Show and was themed around Kylo Ren’s helmet. The sedan’s styling offered ominous appeal, as did the character that inspired it with the two-tone black and silver color scheme. It also has an additional body kit to achieve this look.

By far the coolest concept to come out of the Nissan and Star Wars collaboration

6. Nissan Rogue X-Wing

By far one of the coolest concepts based on the Star Wars franchise, the Nissan Rogue X-Wing was inspired by the famous Resistance X-Wing fighter from 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Bodywrap aside, the SUV got the S-foils and an R2 component on its hood.

Sinister? you bet it’s like Kylo Ren

7. Kylo Ren inspired the Nissan Maxima

This Nissan Maxima took inspiration from Kylo himself and was dressed in red lighting, a black exterior, confirming his allegiance to the dark side. The large fenders added another level of badassery to the car which definitely brought more character to the concept.

The lost 1977 Toyota Celica GT has a story that deserves a standalone movie

8. Toyota Celica GT

Perhaps the first brand collaboration between an automaker and the Star Wars franchise, the story behind this 1977 Toyota Celica GT has its own hallmarks. The car was ordered to be presented as a grand prize to the winner of the Star Wars Space Fantasy contest. While fans took the opportunity, the vehicle completely vanished into the unknown parts of the galaxy (at least according to legend!)

This Celica GT in particular has been part of a lot of stories and speculation, but nothing concrete ever came of it. In 2011, fans tried to track down the old car, but no one has seen it for decades.

Ivor Fett Hyundai Veloster inspired by Boba-Fett

9. Ivor Fett Hyundai Veloster

While we have listed cars that were unique creations of manufacturers, here is an equally popular car in Star Wars circles. Created Rebekah Stieg Knuth, the artist used vinyl wraps to make her Hyundai Veloster look like a rat rod from the planet Kamino. The vinyl itself is inspired by Boba Fett, adding to the badass nature of the Veloster. No wonder then that the car is aptly called Ivor Fett.

10. Hot Wheels Darth Vader Car

comments

Saving the best for last, the “father” of all creations is this unique Hot Wheels creation inspired by Darth Vader. The car debuted at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014. Not only does it draw heavily on Darth Vader’s helmet, but it packs a serious punch under the body as well. The car is built on the Chevrolet Corvette C5 platform with a 518 hp 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine. It is also rear-wheel drive and comes with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Sith Lord really knows how to have fun behind the wheel with the helmet attached.
