Inventor Colin Furze teamed up with Lucasfilm and BBC Children in Need to create a real-life Star Wars Landspeeder in celebration of the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The SoroSuub Corporation X-34 Landspeeder used by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope has been recreated using a Yamaha golf buggy chassis as the base. The interior/cockpit is made of plywood, while the bodywork is steel sheet hand-formed over a fabricated steel frame. Read more for a the build video and additional information.
The Landspeeder’s windscreen is a custom polycarbonate dome cut to shape, as not detail was spared to make this as accurate to the film as possible, and it’s most likely the only metal-construction version in the world.
