Hot Wheels Rolls a Life-Size Darth Vader Car Into Comic-Con Sure to inspire some heavy breathing

To promote its new line of Star Wars-themed character cars and die-cast ships, Hot Wheels showed up at San Diego Comic-Con this week with a life-size Darth Vader car.

The car, a modified Chevrolet Corvette C5, incorporates a lot of Vader's helmet details into its design, along with a 526-horsepower LS3 engine and custom red line tires. It's always the details that make things like this so fun.

The ad promoting it mixes driving footage with a custom Emperor Palpatine monologue, otherwise presenting itself almost like a typical car ad. But I think the atypical car on display here more than makes up for it.
