The Empire has invaded Los Angeles as Lapo Elkann’s Garage Italia Customs has unveiled their new Fiat 500e stormtrooper.

Commissioned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the one-off model features a black and white exterior that draws inspiration from the First Order stormtroopers in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  The car also has tinted windows and a wrapped windscreen which is meant to recall the stormtrooper's iconic helmet and visor.   We can also see First Order badging and black alloy wheels with limited edition Pirelli white wall tires.

While the exterior isn't terribly convincing, the interior is a little better as it boasts white leather seats with perforated black leather inserts and black Alcantara piping.  The model also has a two-tone steering wheel, a white Alcantara headliner, and embroidered First Order headrests.  Other highlights include a white dashboard, black trim, and a prominent Star Wars logo.

Since the Fiat 500e is a pretty rare sight, we'll remind you the model has a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that develops 111 bhp (82 kW) and 147 lb-ft (199 Nm) of torque.  This enables the car to have an EPA rating of 122 MPGe city / 108 MPGe highway.
