In celebration of May the Fourth, and in support of the new film SOLO: A Star Wars Story, Nissan North America unveiled a one-of-a-kind Nissan Rogue show car [], inspired by the most recent film version of the iconic ship.
Created as part of its collaboration with Lucasfilm, this unique show vehicle [] is fully customized including an interior makeover channeling the iconic cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. It also features front and second-row chairs like those seen inside the Millennium Falcon. Additionally, a set of center-mounted "hyperdrive" controls bring the package to life.
The exterior features custom handcrafted aluminum body panels with details mimicking the Millennium Falcon, while 3D-printed inserts bring another level of immersive depth to the project. A roof-mounted radar dish and laser cannon appear as though they could have been lifted right from the movie set. Up front, the multi-pane windshield clearly resembles that of the on-screen hero. In the rear of the ship, the subspace-hyperdrive unit spans the entire width of the Rogue and appropriately glows blue, while a 1,500-watt sound system with trio of high-mounted Bose speakers and a 18” Bose subwoofer provide the aural experience.
Nissan worked with the concept artists at Lucasfilm and ILM to develop the design for this unique show vehicle []. Custom fabrication for the Millennium Falcon-themed Rogue was completed at Vehicle Effects in Burbank, Calif. Watch a behind the scenes video of how the vehicle came to life.
