Making its first appearance in public — at this week’s San Diego Comic Con — and built around a C5 Corvette, this life-sized Hot Wheels Darth Vader car looks like like one of the meanest looking vehicles I have ever seen.

Toyota realises that few customers shopping for a minivan care about horsepower or 0-100 times — they’re basically looking for the easiest way to haul kids.
