Lexus introduced the concept of a single spacecraft
The division of Toyota, which specializes in the production of premium cars – Lexus has declared itself in a somewhat unusual role. Designers of Lexus presented the concept of a one-man spaceship of the future under the name Skyjet. It is worth, however, to clarify – the concept was created at the request of the famous director Luc Besson for a new fantasy blockbuster “Valerian and the city of thousands of planets.”
According to Luc Besson, the choice for Lexus fell not accidentally, as the company in its activities actively uses modern technologies and innovations.
In fact, the goal was to create a dream vehicle that became a reality. As a result, Skyjet appeared – a “space ship” with a tubular structure tapering to the rear engine, with two pairs of side wings and a pair of additional wings at the bottom. On the sides of the cabin are air intakes, and the windshield provides the pilot a panoramic view.
All details of the Skyjet creative team were discussed in detail with a team of designers led by chief engineer Lexus Takeaki Kato. Some elements of a fantastic ship can already be found today on the latest models of the world famous automaker.
