In pictures: Lexus' SKYJET to feature in sci-fi epic Valerian
Lexus unveiled the movie prop in a short 90-second behind-the-scenes sneak peek of the upcoming film.
The Lexus SKYJET was created as part a close collaboration with famed French director Luc Besson. The SKYJET will be featured in the upcoming sci-fi epic, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Takeaki Kato, chief engineer at Lexus: "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. The cars of the future might be flying in the air, but as a luxury brand we consider essential that they remain emotional." Lexus' SKYJET features the company's signature 'spindle' grille, an aerodynamic shape, and a similar headlight design to that of the 2017 Lexus LC coupe. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will be released globally on the 21st of July, 2017.
