The M-68 landspeeder was a model of landspeeder manufactured by Mobquet Swoops and Speeders.[1] The M-68 was very popular among Corellian speeder enthusiasts due to the ease with which its repulsorlift generator could be modified and overcharged.[2] It came in both a hard top and convertible configuration and had a duraplex windscreen.[6]

An overpowered speeder of this type was used by Han and Qi'ra at some point during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The shared engine part of the Halberd-441 and M-68 landspeeder

The M-68 landspeeder first appeared in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story. As shown in The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the Dodge Charger automobile brand and the Chevrolet Malibu mid-size car model were early influences for the landspeeder.[7] The M-68 landspeeder used the same engine parts as Tayshin Maxa and Baroosh Pawk's Halberd-441 swoop bike, with a few modifications.[8]

The vehicle was built by Lucasfilm's prop department. They used many "greebles" such as an aircraft's refulting hose. It was designed like a sports car, in comparison's to Moloch's speeder, which was designed after a truck.[9]

The speeder chase in the beginning of the film was a mixture of practical effects—a four-wheel drive vehicle—and CGI. Additionally, Skywalker Sound wanted to use real-world sounds to differentiate the speeders; part of the sound was recorded using homemade pulse-jet engines.[9]
