Lexus Takes A Closer Look At The SkyJet In Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets 20

Lexus is celebrating its involvement in the upcoming movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets by taking a closer look at the SkyJet featured in the film.

Jointly created with director Luc Besson and his design team, the SkyJet is a “single-seat pursuit craft” that features a spindle grille and headlights that draw inspiration from the Lexus LC coupe.

Since the film is set 700 years in the future, the design team had to envision a high-tech interior influenced by Lexus’ research into artificial intelligence and advanced human-machine-interface (HMI) technologies. Lexus says this could involve everything from simple hand gestures to the LF-FC concept’s hologram technology.

Lexus even influenced the SkyJet’s powertrain as it uses hydrogen fuel cell technology which isn’t too far removed from the system in the LF-FC concept.

In a statement, Lexus Chief Engineer said “Technology will constantly advance and many things far in the distant future are impossible to be certain of now, however, at Lexus, we continuously challenge ourselves to imagine them.”

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will hit theaters on July 21st and the film stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, and Clive Owen.
