Come See Star Wars Cars, the Classic Batmobile and Have Fun During Family Day at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show!

Nissan has come up with some cool Star Wars-themed concept cars, or maybe they are just non-functional props. Who knows, but after spending a substantial percentage of my life stuck in traffic I sure wish the laser cannons were real. The intimidating Nissan Titan below, equipped with the hefty laser cannon, looks like it could easily clear a path without even firing shot.

The Nissan Star Wars Murano below makes a perfect addition to the family for all the soccer moms and dads out there.
