Nissan has tweaked its Rogue SUV to create a limited edition Star Wars version of the car: Rogue One. You know, like the latest Star Wars film — “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” — that comes out in December. Get it?
The car company debuted its Star Wars-themed Rogue SUV model on Wednesday. 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.READ MORE: Evanston Police Called To A Stabbing, Fatal Shooting Incident
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 Magnetic Black or Glacier White and will be available at any of Nissan’s 1,100 retail stores across America.MORE NEWS: Family Remembers Azul De La Garza, Young Woman Shot And Killed In West Elsdon, As 'Beautiful Soul' With A Future In Art
The cars coolest feature? Literally, it’s the air conditioning, but figuratively, it’s probably the Imperial Stormtrooper helmet it comes with.
