The iconic Star Wars X-wing Fighter has been reimagined as a high performance Hot Wheels racecar. The X-wing Fighter Carship sped into San Diego Comic-Con and will then be shrunk shortly to be sent across the galaxy in retail die-cast 1:64 scale Carships.
The custom built race car is equipped with a 2.0 liter 16 valve DOHC engine from Ford, AP Racing dual piston calipers with slotted rotors, and custom slick tires to out-maneuver the Empire and save the galaxy. Hot Wheels claims the X-Wing can produce 950 pounds of downforce at 165 miles per hour. All we are left to wonder after watching the video is where is R2 going to fit. We would hope to have him on hand for assistance in locking down the stabilizers if they were to break loose.
