Background: The Narglatch XJ-6 airspeeder commandeered by Anakin Skywalker during the pursuit of Zam Wesell on Coruscant was a custom-built airspeeder belonging to Senator Simon Greyshade. Greyshade’s personal mechanics created the Narglatch XJ-6 hot rod airspeeder
as a luxury transport for the Senator while on business on Coruscant. Greyshade used his wealth to acquire a number of custom- built airspeeders for his Senatorial colleagues, all of whom were also ardent boyracers. Greyshade’s airspeeder was painted in a particularly gonzo yellow, and decorated with a number of racing stickers: testament to Greyshade’s after-hours antics.

The Narglatch XJ-6 was fitted with two powerful, frontal turbojet engines, allowing the hot rod to reach speeds of up to 720 kilometers per hour. The speeder was controlled via two joysticks and an eight-speed thrust control/gear. The hot rod was a two-seater; catering for Greyshade’s desire for privacy while escorting fellow Senators, influential politicians or his latest female companion. An electric field ensures oncoming objects are repulsed from the speeder, while tractor units in the seats help keep the driver and passenger seated through the most reckless of maneuvers.
