Peugeot took advantage of the May 4th celebrations - known as the 'Star Wars Day'- to launch the “special Skywalker series” of the 2008 SUV, restyled version of the model in honor of the iconic film franchise. While maintaining discretion, the limited edition vehicle - which will have only 310 units made - gained an external look and exclusive finishing details.

Under the hood, the 2008 Peugeot special features the 1.6 hp 173 THP flex engine, which is currently only offered in the Griffe version. The “Skywalker vehicle” is also packed with tech and equipment, such as autopilot, AT6 six-speed sequential automatic transmission, speed limiter, LED DRL headlights, front and side airbags, Isofix for fixing children's seats and multimedia center with direct connection to the Apple CarPlay and / or Android Auto.

The limited series will be based on the top configuration of the compact SUV, which features some items such as panoramic glass roof, side and curtain airbags, automatic two-zone digital air conditioning and electronic traction and stability controls.

On the outside, we highlight the front fenders, which bear the chrome emblem of the "Rebel Alliance", a confrontation order commanded by Princess Leia Organa in the first films of 'Star Wars' and leader of the movement in current trilogy.

The lid of the luggage compartment, in turn, displays the Skywalker signature, with the original logo of the film and a high-gloss chrome finish. The special monogram is applied just below the flashlight extension, to the left of the trunk lid (see below).

The cover of the exterior mirrors and the door handles also gained an exclusive tone in the special series: gray in a graphite tone, perfectly matching the darkened 16-rim wheels, painted with a paint referring to the high-gloss titanium called “Gris Anthra” .

Inside the vehicle, the four “nave” carpets receive pilots and passengers exclusively: they have white stitched edges and the “Rebel Alliance” logo and a stylized Skywalker signature. As a form of security, the driver's tapestry has a locking system compatible with the original locks installed on the car's carpet.

Door trim, center console and the front of the entire panel are another exclusivity of the Peugeot 2008 Skywalker edition compared to the Griffe version, on which it is based. In a different shade of gray, the design sounds more sophisticated for the cabin and blends perfectly with the pleasant touch fabric and with multiple textures - another exclusive point of the special series.

The special edition has a suggested price of R $ 121.990 and can already be found at a “nothing far distant” dealership.
