Nissan has a long-running partnership with LucasFilm to promote new Star Wars movies so it comes as little surprise the company has unveiled a custom Rogue at the world premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Drawing inspiration from the Millennium Falcon, the one-off Rogue was developed with the assistance of concept designers at Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic. The company then brought their design to Vehicle Effects which built the “most extensive Star Wars-themed” vehicle to date.
The model looks truly impressive and this is due to the handcrafted aluminum body panels which mimic the Millennium Falcon. The design is further enhanced by a Millennium Falcon-inspired windscreen, a detailed paint job and custom wheel. Vehicle Effects also installed 3D-printed components as well as a roof-mounted radar dish and laser cannon.
The distinctive styling continues out back as the Rogue has been equipped with a “subspace-hyperdrive unit” which glows blue and spans the entire width of the crossover. The rear window has also been replaced by three 18-inch Bose subwoofers which provide sound effects from the movie.
The interior isn’t nearly as exciting as it largely carries over from the standard model. However, Nissan says the crossover has a center-mounted “hyperdrive” console as well as buttons, lights and sound effects inspired by the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit.
Nissan didn’t say much else about the crossover but it likely has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 170 hp (126 kW / 172 PS) and 175 lb-ft (237 Nm) of torque. It should be paired to an continuously variable transmission and a front- or all-wheel drive system.
Solo: A Star Wars Story lands in U.S. theaters on May 25th and it stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover. It tells the story of a young Han Solo (Ehrenreich) and shows him meeting Chewbacca as well as Lando Calrissian (Glover).
