The vehicle boasted incredible acceleration, which came in handy, since Gasgano loathed to let anyone pass. This vehicle had a nice speed boost package, but after boosting, the pod ran very hot, and lacked a good cooling system to appease. This was also not a problem for Gasgano, as he only used the booster in critical situations.
- "…eh Gasgano doowa newpa Ord Petrovia!"
- ―Fodesinbeed Annodue, translated from Huttese as "And Gasgano in his new Ord Pedrovia!"
In 1 BBY, an unidentified racer piloted a podracer that looked very similar to Ord Pedrovia, which may or may not be the same as the replica being acquired at a later point by an unidentified spacer.
Behind the scenes
The Ord Pedrovia made its first appearance in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.
A statue of it was later featured in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, where it was available to players as a veteran reward. In 2008, it became the subject of a loot card in Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game: Champions of the Force, which could be redeemed for the actual Podracer in Galaxies.
In Episode I: The Phantom Menace ½ it is erroneously referred to as the "Ord Pedroviz".
