Here's What The Millennium Falcon Would Look Like As A Car

Feature

She's got it where it counts, kid

As far as space ships on the big screen go, few are asfamous as the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars films. From the distinctiveand allegedly hamburger-inspired design to the bond Han Solo has with his shipthat any car owner can relate to, the Falcon has earned itself a well-deservedplace as a pop culture icon. So, with the new Star Wars film ‘The Force Awakens’ openingtoday, we immediately started wondering what the Millennium Falcon would looklike if it was a car.

Thankfully, a Hungarian design student called Robert Kovacs has given us a good idea. This road-going version of the Millennium Falcon maystruggle to do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, but Kovacs’re-interpretation certainly looks the part, with all those iconic cues from thesmuggler ship being present. We especially love how the aerodynamics areintegrated into the rear – imagine how much downforce can be generated by adiffuser that’s blown by a hyperdrive exhaust port!?
