With the latest Star Wars franchise movie, Solo, coming soon, Japanese automaker Nissan decided to develop an exclusive car that would remind anyone of Han Solo’s iconic ship, the Millennium Falcon.
This all started when Nissan entered a partnership with the Star Wars Franchise some time ago. Since then, Nissan has been fiddling with the Rogue. Remember when the Rogue One movie came out in 2016? What’s cool was the Japanese automaker was quick enough to release a Star Wars inspired version of their Rogue model just as its namesake movie was released. This was how Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition was born. Following that model was the quirky Rogue X Wing Concept, which honestly not everyone was fond of.
This year, Nissan’s latest creation would be the Millennium Falcon-inspired Rogue, which they made just in time for the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie that will make its debut on May 25. The model will even head to the red carpet to join the Hollywood stars. Without a surprise, the same company, Vehicle Effects (which fabricated the other Star Wars inspired Rogues) helped create this one as well.
Nissan’s Vice President of marketing communications and media, Jeremy Tucker said in his statement that they have raised the bar with delivering their best custom show vehicle, with the third installment of their own trilogy of collaborations.
Tucker added in his statement that they began playing with the Nissan Rouge, and worked together with no other than the talented designers at Lucasfilm and ILM, who helped them turn Han Solo’s iconic ship to life, with the help of the aforementioned Vehicle Effects, of course. The result? The hottest and most thrilling Nissan Rogue collaboration that they have created.
You might think that the Millennium Falcon is just about how it looks, and you are wrong. In fact, the vehicle’s interior had been modified and was given a set of buttons, lights and sound effects similar to what you will see in the ship’s cockpit. Even the driver and passenger seats were designed to make you feel like you are Han Solo, or perhaps Chewbacca. We are pretty sure that even Harrison Ford will be impressed.
That’s not all. It also features a visual and audible “hyperdrive”, with the blue lights and Bose speakers (which amounts to 1,500 watts of intergalactic sound effects). There is a video online that you could check out to see how cool this actually is.
