Nissan’s latest Star Wars-themed custom show car landed on the Hollywood red carpet at the world premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Based upon the brand’s best-selling 2018 Nissan Rogue, the vehicle takes inspiration from the iconic Millennium Falcon, featuring unmistakable elements from the most capable ship in the galaxy.
Merging the likeness of the Millennium Falcon with the Nissan Rogue was a natural fit. ProPilot Assist, a Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology, helps drivers maintain speeds and guide the Rogue “Straight Down the Centre.” Similarly, the Millennium Falcon always seems to find its way out of trouble ahead by navigating obstacles with apparent ease.
The Millennium Falcon-inspired Rogue is the most extensive Star Wars-themed Nissan custom show vehicle built to date, practically appearing as though it flew right off the screen. In addition to a fully customised movie-inspired exterior, for the first time this Star Wars-inspired Nissan receives a full interior makeover channelling the iconic cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
Kids of all ages are going to enjoy the level of detail and craftsmanship that went into the interior of the build. Just as any Star Wars fan would expect, the interior features buttons, lights and sound effects closely reflecting the sights and sounds of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit. It also features front- and second-row chairs like those seen inside the Millennium Falcon. Additionally, center-mounted “hyperdrive” controls bring the package to life.
The exterior is where the workmanship of the build shines. Custom handcrafted aluminum body panels feature 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 were lifted right from the movie set. Up front, the multi-pane windshield clearly resembles that of the on-screen hero spaceship.
But the rear of the craft is where all the magic happens. The subspace-hyperdrive unit spanning the entire width of the Rogue appropriately glows blue, while a trio of high-mounted Bose speakers and an 18-inch Bose subwoofer provide the aural experience. Inside and out, the Bose system delivers an impressive 1500 watts of audio across the galactic empire.
Custom fabrication for the Millennium Falcon themed Rogue was completed at Vehicle Effects in Burbank, California. Vehicle Effects has a storied history in crafting custom vehicles for on-screen use and is responsible for all previous Nissan Star Wars-themed show vehicles.
