Dodge is milking their partnership with Lucasfilm for all it’s worth as the company has released a new Star Wars themed commercial.
Called “The Force Gathers,” the clip features a black Viper ACR leading a convey white ‘stromtroopers’ that are represented by the Charger, Challenger, and Durango. Given that the Viper ACR represents the Dark Side, it should come as little surprise the video is set to The Imperial March which is better known as Darth Vader’s theme song.
Unveiled earlier this year, the Viper ACR isn’t trained in lightsaber combat or the dark arts but it does come with an 8.4-liter V10 engine that produces 645 bhp (480 kW) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque. The model also features Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and a track-tuned adjustable suspension with Bilstein coilover racing shocks. Other highlights include a minimalistic interior and special 19-inch alloy wheels with bespoke Kumho Ecsta V720 high-performance tires. Should that fail to impress, customers can order an optional Extreme Aero package that allows the Viper to have the “highest aerodynamic downforce of any production car.”
Of course, if a TIE Fighter is more your thing, we’ll remind you Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
