Lamborghini Huracan Stormtrooper Edition Awakens the Force

With the release of the second trailer for the 7th Star Wars movie, today is the perfect day to show anything that has to do with Wookies, Twi'leks, R2-D2s or stormtroopers.

I watched trailer No.2 for The Force Awakens and, as a huge Star Wars, I can honestly say that it's not that exciting. Sure, the actress who plays Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in Game of Thrones is behind a chrome Stormtrooper costume, but it's as exciting as the next rendering.

Jon Sibal decided that chopping the roof off a Lamborghini Huracan and turning it into the baby brother of the Aventador J was not enough. He also made the whole thing as black as Darth Vader's helmet, added some weird wheels and a stormtrooper behind the wheel.

Obviously, there won't be any supercars in The Force Awakens, as director J.J. Abrams isn't as shallow as Michael Bay. In fact, there won't be any Chevys, Audis or Mercs… no cars whatsoever, in fact.

Instead, we're getting something much cooler. R2-D2 and other droids just like him have been around since the first Star Wars movie. Back then, the technology wasn't what it is today, so a Tyrion Lannister sized actor had to sit inside the robot and move everything.

But at yesterday's Star Wars conference, they showed a brand new type of droid. It's called the BB-8 and looks like a shrunken R2 head rolling around on a soccer ball. The great thing is that bright engineers managed to use new-fangled technology and make it stable.

Why is this relevant for this article? Well, if Hollywood can make a head that spins on a soccer ball, shouldn't Lamborghini give us a flying car or something?
