Hot Wheels Just Created A Real-Life X-Wing That Can Hit 165 MPH

Hot Wheels

Shut up and take our money.

The newest Star Wars movie, “Rogue One,” doesn’t come out until December 16th, 2016. But that hasn’t stopped Hot Wheels from creating a custom X-wing car. The “X-wing Fighter Carship” was rolled out five months before the movie’s debut because Comic-Con is in full swing down in San Diego, and because Hot Wheels is selling a line of Carships to promote the film. Powering the real-life X-wing is a Ford-sourced 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC engine making a mystery amount of power. Hot Wheels hasn’t let much in the way of details slip.

What the company did say is that the custom car will make 950 pounds of downforce at 165 mph. That means it can actually do 165 mph. That’s nuts. Check it out in action in this teaser trailer.
