[NAIAS 2008] Dodge Avenger Stormtrooper – Is This What Vader Drives?

Let’s face it, he’s a single dad with 2 kids and an Empire to run, so it only makes sense that Darth Vader would drive a sensible sedan like the Dodge Avenger. But the guy’s also got some style so this special Stormtrooper Tuner edition designed by Scott Anderson would probably be more suited to his needs.

A digitally-tuned 4.0 liter V6 engine powers an all wheel drive powertrain and you’ll also find a six-speed automatic gearbox with AutoStick paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. It’s also pretty high-tech with 2 Azentek 1.8GHz Intel Core Duo mobile PCs installed in the front dash and rear center console. The rear system allows passengers to enjoy games, music, videos and even surf the web while the front system allows the driver to digitally tune the engine as well as keep track of performance vitals.

Unfortunately though the horn doesn’t play either The Imperial March or the Cantina Band song, which I think is a missed opportunity. But just being named the ‘Stormtrooper’ is probably more than enough to bring Star Wars fans in droves.

There’s just a couple more photos after the jump.

    As far as I can tell it is not officially licensed by Lucasfilm. I suspect if it was, they would have gone out of their way to include the Star Wars logo, and make it obvious.
