Hot Wheels has been churning out toy versions of movie and television cars for as long as we can remember. Some notable examples include the famous KITT from Knight Rider and the wacky VW bug named Herbie. Now, the company is reaching out to Star Wars fans with the X-wing Carship.

Yes, the iconic Hollywood spaceship has just received an epic Hot Wheels treatment. The toymaker has unveiled a full-scale model at this year’s International Comic Con in San Diego, California.

The life-size vehicle comes complete with a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve motor, dual piston calipers with slotted rotors, and a set of custom slick tires--enough to maneuver it around the Empire to save the galaxy. Neat stuff.

Later this year, toy fans can get their very own X-wing Carship in the form of a 1:64 scale model. In the meantime, you can watch the vehicle tearing up the track in the short video above.
