What should one drive if they had a Storm trooper out fit? The black Atom works very well for Vader.

I wonder if I can get an SA2005 stamp for that helmet... I would rock that in the racecar.

Troopers typically moved around in shuttles or drop craft. Think Marines. So white HMMV's or Unimog's

Although some of the GRMer's might like this better:

If you're thinking of the pilots that flew with Vader, then they would be in all black Lotus 7 clones or all black versions of the F1-67 since he was flying the advanced and experimental version of the Tie-fighter's they flew. Much like the Atom is an improved and experimental version of the Lotus Seven.

LOL, Apex that was the picture I was looking for.

Keith, when I was thinking of the Atom, I was thinking of DPCars.net's V8 powered, not the more mundane 4-cylinder version.

I'm not a fan of the Seven's styling, but I can't ignore their performance and price.

If you're going to talk about a one-off Atom, then you have to compare the Atom to the RV8-powered Caterhams

Well, a V8 created from a pair of Hayabusa 4-cylinders is cooler than an old Rover/Buick V8.

Now if you're talking about the RST-V8 then that is pretty cool for a prehistoric front engined tinker toy Not as cool as a proper mid-engined car with some style and panache! HA!

Besides, you don't know the power of the darkside....

RST-V8, you're right. Sorry. Too much time hanging out with the MG guys.

The Atom is a styling exercise. The Seven is a race car. I know which one I'd pick. But that's a different discussion. Darth Vader would look wrong in a Seven.

No. If Darth Vader drove a car, it would be one of these:
