May the Star Wars Be with You, Mercedes-Benz Says

To mark the commemorative date of 40 years Star Wars franchise, Mercedes-Benz seems to join the dark side of party. The carmaker has announced the exclusive Star Wars Edition sedan which underpins the platform of its CLA 180 model, with 18-inch alloys (black multi-spoke ones for the black model, or two-tone AMG ones for the white one) .

Only 120 units are going to be built; 60 in Night Black paint scheme to pay homage to Darth Vader, and another 60 in Calcite White color to honor stormtroopers, evidently. Pity the model would be available in Japan only. The featured CLA 180 Star Wars Edition is considered to be a typical movie-branded car, with the plenty of SW goodies, including branded puddle lights, a special license plate frame, a compact recorder that replicates R2-D2 sounds, and the most fancypants ever – a reversible windshield sunshade with the main SW characters on it. 

So Stormtroopers or Darth Vader’ fans? The choice is yours.
