Star Wars Inspired Nissan Rogue One
In 1979, George Lucas released his epic Star Wars film. Even before the virtual reality, the Star Wars film franchise gave the vision of being in the space and co-existing with other alien beings. This is justified by Carl Segan in his magnum opus sci-fi novel Contact which was also made into an astronomical movie ‘Contact’: “The universe is a pretty big place. If it’s just us, seems like an awful waste of space.” ― Carl Sagan
Today, there are many Star Wars endorsements that exist in our lives; from mobile phones to flying cars are all inspired by the same Star Wars. And why not it’s been said that there are around 131 million fans of this sci-fi flick in United States alone! So there’s a possibility that in rest of the world where besides my 13-year-old daughter, there is perhaps one Start Wars fan exists in every other film buff household (math, not done).
Nissan is no exception to this rule and is a part of the Star Wars celestial fan base. Recently, Nissan went ahead and took the opportunity to collab with the Star Wars and at the Los Angeles Auto show revealed the redesigned 2017 Rogue (known as X-Trail in the Middle East). These special factory produced known as Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition – the first production vehicle ever to include Star Wars-branded elements – include a unique badge, exclusive interior and exterior trim items and a full-size Death Trooper collectible helmet.
“For most fans, their love affair with Star Wars started in childhood, with hours spent playing with miniature replicas of the various X-wing fighters and other vehicles,” added Tucker. “Now, for a special few, they have a chance to engage with a full-scale collectible, the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition. And more than just a big kid toy, the Limited Edition is every inch the real thing – a Rogue for every adventure you can imagine.”
The extensive attraction includes the black appearance package with Sun and Sound Touring Package can be owned in front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Powered by a 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque and mated with next-generation Nissan Xtronic transmission with Sport and Eco Mode switches. The Rogue One features features signature LED headlights, black grille and lower finisher, black rear door finisher, black roof rails and door handles, D-pillar “Rebel Alliance” and “Galactic Empire” logo decals, “Star Wars” logo clear rear bumper protector and Rogue One logo badging on the front doors.
Inside, special features include logo carpeted floor mats, “Star Wars” logo illuminated kickplates, “Rebel Alliance” and “Galactic Empire” logos in cupholder inserts and interior accent lighting. It is offered in just two colors – Magnetic Black and Glacier White – and one interior color, charcoal.
Sadly, the Star Wars franchised Rogue One are not destined for Middle East. Just 5,400 copies of the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition will be produced – 5,000 for customers in the United States and 400 for Canada. In addition to the wide range of custom features and equipment, each vehicle also comes with an exclusive numbered, full-size replica collectible Death Trooper helmet.
