To help commemorate the 40th anniversary of the cult classic Star Wars franchise, Mercedes-Benz Japan went about creating a limited edition of its CLA 180 model. Limited to just 120 prototypes, 60 take on a “Calcite White” color scheme to honor the stormtrooper and the remaining 60 in “Night Black” to memorialize Darth Vader himself. Performance-wise, each comes equipped with a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbo drive engine — good for 120 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque.
