Hot Wheels Makes Drivable Star Wars X-Wing Car
Hot Wheels is making every Star Wars fan’s dream come true.
The company has reimagined the iconic X-Wing from Star Wars as a high-performance racecar, powered by a 2.0-liter engine and backed by AP dual piston caliper brakes with slotted rotors and custom slick tires to out-maneuver the Empire. The X-Wing Fighter Carship is on display at the San Diego Comic Con and the company promises that it will release die-cast 1:64-scale models of it later this year.

The Carship is capable of hitting a top speed of 180 mph and was built from refurbished race car and jet engine parts. Naturally it features the Rebel Alliance logo along with a version of the iconic Hot Wheels logo.
Mattel claims that the new X-Wing Carship will be one of the fastest toys ever on the orange Hot Wheels track.
