Today is May the 4th, and unless you are a Margaret Thatcher fan where you might wish to use today as a remembrance day of the first time she stepped into 10 Downing Street, you would be like Boris Johnson and everyone else across the globe who are using the pun "May the fourth be with you" as a form of recognition for the ever-popular intergalactic drama franchise, Star Wars.
Now recognised as an official celebration by the studio who owns Star Wars, May 4th will always be Star Wars Day for fans across the globe. Some are celebrating the day by watching all of the nine episodes, while some are getting dressed up in costumes resembling the characters, while others are playing with their collection of Star Wars memorabilia especially them lightsabers.
Quite a few of us are Star Wars geeks ourselves so here's our ode to #MayThe4th:
Darth Vader X Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door Coupe
There's no denying it; the Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is a vehicle fit for a dark lord. With its menacing shape and matt black colour, we're pretty sure Dark Vader himself would be pretty pleased with this vehicle, especially when he can probably chase down any rebel on the road thanks to the GT's 630hp engine which can warp itself to 100kmh in 3 secs.
Mandalorian X Tesla Cybertruck
If the Mandalorian had to drive a car, we think he would have chosen the Tesla Cybertruck. The truck is shiny like him and pretty stealth moving like himself too. The Mandolorian doesn't care much for many things, but we think the Cybertruck will have enough space for all of the Mandalorian's weapons and fancy gizmos as well as baby Yoda. Since the Tesla Cybertruck can be had with the Tesla ATV, we think it would be a perfect combination for the Mando who sometimes goes on scouting missions in unchartered territories.
Stormtroopers x Myvi
If there is one car that sums up a Stormtrooper, that car would be a Myvi. Although not significant, they are everywhere and comes in many forms of shape and colours. Essentially, the Myvi is like any Stormtrooper, same on the inside but different on the outside. Purposed to whatever the task is at hand, you can find a racer Myvi, a market car Myvi, a family car Myvi and many more. The Stormtroopers too come in many purposes. There is the Shock Trooper, Shadow Trooper, Flame Trooper, to name but a few.
Nissan Maxima X Kylo Ren
Before the last Jedi debuted, Nissan had a go at creating cars inspired by characters from Episode 8. While we all know most of it was just a branding exercise, we actually think that the Nissan Maxima inspired by Kylo Ren was spot on. Apart from incorporating some of Kylo's headgear into Nissan's V-Motion Grille design language, the rest of the car was pretty much black and plain, just like Kylo Ren. We say they got this spot on because the Maxima is a car that everyone knows is great and it doesn't need to be flashy for it to show off its great front end. A few Of Kylo's Stripes was all it needed to give it that Jr Dark Lord look.
And that our fellow fans is our contribution to May the 4th, did we miss out on any vehicles?
