It may not be a Landspeeder nor a TIE Fighter and certainly not a Millennium Falcon, but, Nissan is giving you the opportunity to weave your Star Wars fandom into your automotive life.
Nissan has tweaked its Rogue SUV to create a limited edition Star Wars version of the car: Rogue One. The car company debuted this model on Wednesday and it should be ready for public consumption before December is upon us, according to Inverse.com.
The limited edition SUV isn’t all that much different than the regular model, but the beauty is in the subtleties: insignia on the doors as well as the floor mats, plus other Star Wars symbols that aren’t ostentatious.
As for how much it’ll cost? Within the realm of possibility for new car buyers at a ‘suggested’ $28,950. To compare, a regular, non-Star Wars Rogue starts at $23,820.
The Rogue One will certainty sell out quickly, as there’ll only be 5,400 models available. It’s (slightly) divided in that 400 of those cars will go to Canada, leaving American consumers to race to get one of the remaining 5,000.
Jeremy Meadows, senior manager of marketing strategy for Nissan, spoke with Inverse after the car was unveiled and focused on its scarcity.
“It was a joint discussion between Lucasfilm and ourselves, but the main point is when you name something limited edition, it needs to be limited in production, that’s how it becomes a little extra special,” said Meadows.
The Rogue One is available in black or white and will be available at any of Nissan’s 1,100 retail stores across America.
If that’s not enough convincing for you to spring to buy, they’ve thrown in a kicker: it comes with an imperial Stormtrooper helmet.
