A look at Nissan's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"-inspired show vehicles.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan introduced their Star Wars themed concept vehicles in celebration of the brand's collaboration with Lucasfilm for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The show vehicles highlight Nissan's dramatic designs and the famous characters and crafts of the upcoming film.
A team of artists from Lucasfilm penned the designs, guiding colors, textures and graphics to pair the vehicles with various characters from the film Star Wards: The Last Jedi.
In order to show simulated use in battle, each concept has received a unique approach by including extras such as hydro-dipped graphics, surround sound and aged exterior.
After the designs were complete, Hollywood vehicle fabricators at Vehicle Effects in Burbank, California, brought the sketches to life.
2018 Nissan Altima - Special Forces TIE Fighter
The Special Forces TIE Fighter is recreated using Nissan's best-selling sedan, Altima. The cockpit window on the windshield that brings the multi-paned look of the Special Forces TIE fighter is the stand out feature. There are speakers attached to each corner of the vehicle which recreate TIE Fighter and blaster sounds. The wheels on this Altima feature the centerpiece of a TIE Fighter wing.
2018 Nissan Maxima - Kylo Ren
This concept takes the existing aggressive design of Nissan Maxima. The black and silver face mask of Kylo Ren has been merged with Maxima's V-Motion design language. This concept also features a custom front lower spoiler. A red signature headlight completes the design plus underbody lighting that pulse at random are like Kylo Reno's crossguard lightsaber.
2018 Nissan Maxima - Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer
The Nissan Maxima, with its astute handling capability makes the perfect choice to replicate Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer. This concept features laser cannons and missile launchers fixed on the vehicles distinct wings. The Crimson lighting in the grille and underneath brings the concept to life.
2018 Nissan Maxima - Captain Phasma
The captain Phasma Maxima is covered in high-gloss silver armor and features an unmistakable mask. This Captain Phasma Maxima has also been designed to celebrate female strength.
2018 Nissan Rouge - Poe Dameron's X-wing with BB-8
This concept features massive fixed wings spanning on both sides of Nissan Rogue. This starfighter features a pair of illuminating thrusters and quad laser cannons. A full sized BB-8 astromech droid with functioning lights, motion and sound sits on top.
2018 Nissan Rogue Sport - A - wing.
The Nissan Rogue Sport is the perfect fit for the quick and nimble, the A-Wing. The dual thrusters attached at the rear are illuminated while the top-mounted fins mimic the A-wings design.
2018 Nissan TITAN AT-M6
Since AT-M6 is the largest vehicle in the First Order's arsenal for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the perfect fit was the Nissan TITAN. The TITAN is the biggest vehicle in Nissan's fleet with the highest standard horsepower in its segment. The concept features a massive megacaliber cannon fixed at the rear. It is also equipped with sound systems that mimics the walker's ground-stomping movements, effectively bringing the vehicle to life.
We would love to see more fun cobranding between Nissan and the "Star Wars" Franchise!
