Description: The Mercury Sports Air Speeder was a popular speeder before the rise of the Empire, although the altitude range was usually limited on planets which did not have airiel traffic lanes. Although not quite as practical as later speeders, the Mercury is now considered a classic, and models which retain their original paint schemes in bright primary colours, and have still functional ion afterburners will fetch a high price on the open market.
