It wouldn’t be Comicon without the automotive mad scientists at Hot Wheels debuting an epic new full-size automotive creation and that’s just what they did last night with the reveal of their new Star Wars X-Wing “Carship.” A follow up to last year’s incredible Darth Vader vehicle, the new X-Wing is powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder Ford engine with custom bodywork and wings that Hot Wheels claims can produce 950 pounds of downforce at 165 miles per hour. No word yet on the 0-60 times for this fantasy racer or if it can make the jump to lightspeed, but it looks fast enough to outrun a hoarde of rabid Star Wars nerds in the video…
