The Darth Vader Car

Never mind the Batmobile, there's a new set of wheels in town.

This fantastic Darth Vader-themed car has been designed by the people at Hot Wheels - the toy car company - but they've actually made a real life version too.

Built for this year's Comic-Con, the one-off, life-size Vadermobile has been made from a C5 Corvette and comes complete with glowing red lightsaver trim, matching wheels, and the trademark mask front end. It reaches a top speed of 80 miles per hour, which is probably a bit slow for someone used to galavanting around on a Star Destroyer.

The Hot Wheels version will be available in October, and will come in a see-through lightsaber display case, costing $40. Don't sith, sorry miss, out.
