Created for Comic-Con in San Diego, Autoblog reports that the car, which is based on a C6 Corvette, uses a tuned LS3 V-8 with a reworked exhaust system. The carbon-fiber body panels are particularly striking, clearly resembling the man in black. And the whole thing is fully drivable, as you can see in the video below.

Hot Wheels has partnered with Star Wars to sell toy vehicles nearer to the movie's release date, with Vader's real ride making the rounds during various appearances after its time in San Diego.
