2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: Tatooine Road Trip

May 3, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

When it comes to traversing a barren desert planet in style, nothing can beat the Mercedes-Benz S-LandSpeeder AMG.

Originally owned by Jedi Master "Tool Hand" Luke Skywalker, this fine landspeeder was restored to its original glory by its current owner. It is set to cross the block at the Beraat Jar-Jarkson Auctions in Mos Eisley this summer (but really, it's ALWAYS summer).

We're not expecting it to fetch a huge sum of galactic credits, though, as much of the "provenance" from Skywalker has been removed during restoration. The good news for Rebellion re-enactors and Luke Fans around the galaxy is that those extra parts (including some power converters from the famous tuner shop Toshi Station) are included in a separate shipping container.

Whether you just need to get back...home...or transporting "acquired" droids from some shady Jawas, this S-LS will do it with a flourish.
