Darth Vader | US Mags | Hot Wheels

Posted on August 6, 2014

We were recently called upon by Billy Hammon and PCW Brands Inc. to help put the finishing touches on the Mattel Toys Inc. commissioned Hot Wheels "Darth Vader Car".  The custom body, designed after Darth Vader's helmet, required some tricky fitments and with the help of Yuri Ranum we were able to fit the 20x9 and 22x12 U500 Standard's onto the C5 Corvette chassis.  The Darth Car is powered by a GM LS3 V-8, sending about 526 horsepower to the rear wheels.  Our deep concave forged center's were used on custom 3-piece wheels to give the Darth Car an even more sinister look.  The Vader Car is scheduled to tour around the country for various comicon and Mattel Toys event's.
