ILM Art Department Challenge - The Ride - X99 Luxor Landspeeder

The brief was to design two (2) new Star Wars vehicles within the aesthetic of Episodes IV - VI. They could be anything. For this one I chose a landspeeder.

The Luxor is a high-end catamaran landspeeder built for one purpose, to allow the wealthy to enjoy the adventure of the wilderness on planets such as Tatooine in style. On one side, the driver compartment allows seating for three and a maintenance droid. On the other, there is room for a party and storage for food and drink. The topspeed is fairly low, more akin to 'sailing' over the sand than speeding across it. Equipped with two large repulsorlift engines it can hover up to one and a half metres off the ground.
