Bulgarian tuners from Vilner have released first images of its upcoming project – the BMW Stormtrooper.
The model is essentially a convertible version of the 6-Series Bullshark, revealed last year. The company explains that “after the transformation, the vehicle looks like the stormtroopers – the white soldiers from the Galactic Empire” from the Star Wars saga.
The convertible has received major design changes that include new headlights, bumpers, engine hood, alloy wheels with most of the aerodynamic elements made of carbon fiber. The interior is equipped with two-tone leather seats, door panels and dashboard.
The Bullshark is powered by an updated V8 4.4-liter engine with an exhaust system from AC Schnitzer and 370 HP (272 kW) and 522 Nm (385 lb-ft). Similar power plant is expected for the Stormtrooper, which means it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in around 5.4 seconds.
According to Vilner, further details will be released over the next few weeks.
