With its sculpted athletic exterior and driver-oriented cockpit, Stingray is a beautiful weapon against the ordinary. But its ingenious design is purpose-driven. A lightweight aluminum space frame replaces [...]

In this Starwars special edition of Ride of the Month, CSJ got to sit down with both Jedi Masters and talk about these awesome starships.
“Ever since they came out in 2008 I knew I had to have one, the looks, sound, performance, and over all manliness of the car.
