The Lexus Lunar Concepts
Lexus lately has had their eyes set on horizons on the stars in ways much more literal than we’re used to. First there was the Luc Besson sci-fi movie Valerian and the Lexus spacecraft showcased, and then they revealed the Men in Black: International (starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who both appeared in Thor: Ragnarok) vehicle, a transforming Lexus RC F that turns into the QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer space ship.
But now ED2, the design company behind Lexus and Toyota vehicle, has submitted seven different designs to Document Journal (an art and fashion magazine) for travel on the moon. And these are the kind of designs you’d expect from the Lexus of the Jetsons universe or maybe Star Wars, with radical designs that attempt to take advantage of a lack of gravity (although I’m unsure if that’s based on science or sci-fi).
But the designs themselves are actually fantastically cool: For example, the Zero Gravity is a hover bike that highly resembles the Speeder bike from Star Wars, while using what appears to be a 3-D holographic display. Or the Lexus Moon Roller, a vehicle contained in a graphene nanotube bubble as if a gyroscope, able to roll or jump across anything on the moon.
But I think my favorite has got to be the Lexus Lunar Mission, with a design that is definitely Star Wars through and through. Spindle wings that are (somehow) connected to a ship that looks like it’s made of the same material as the Silver Surfer. Lexus has also managed to ensure the wings resemble the Lexus logo, with a silver, red, and black color scheme that’s definitely reminiscent of the Sith.
Let us know your thoughts on these awesome new concepts from Lexus.
