You won’t be able to buy this Lexus at your local dealer for a long, long time (if ever), but with the premiere this week of Sony Pictures’ Men in Black: International, you’ll be able to see it on the big screen.
The Lexus QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer jet makes its debut in the film, the first vehicle in Lexus’ new jet-class fleet. Lexus is the luxury brand of Toyota Motor Corp., which has U.S. headquarters is in Plano.
Men in Black: International is the fourth film in the Men in Black franchise, with the original film hitting theaters in 1997. The newest installment stars Chris Hemsworth as Agent H and Tessa Thompson as rookie agent M. Together, the duo takes on an impending new threat from aliens that can take on the form of any human being.
Powered by “hybrid transformer technology,” the QZ 618 is currently only available to MIB agents. It can be accessed by pushing a button—and transforms from a 2020 Lexus RC F sport coupe.
• An IGPS (Inter-Galactic Positioning System);
• Amazon Alexa, with the ability to understand all 7 trillion alien languages;
• Gamma ray headlamps;
• Infinite scaling technology;
• Lexus’ very latest Quasar Power Source Technology (QPST);
• A propulsion system named after Black Hole TON 618;
• 122 MPG (Millennia Per Gallon);
• Three driving modes: EcoDrive, SportDrive, QuantumDrive;
• 0-60 in 0.0000000000001 nanoseconds; and
• Light-speed-matching capability.
Lexus calls the vehicle the most powerful IFO (Identified Flying Object) the carmaker has ever engineered and it comes in the darkest black in the universe: Umbra Black.
“The Lexus jet reflects the future of the Lexus brand—the far, far distant future,” Lisa Materazzo, vice president of Lexus marketing, said in a statement. “With the most advanced alien-fighting technology, performance and sophisticated styling, it’s in a class of its own.”
In a tongue-in-cheek press release, the company says that a top-secret exchange of knowledge with an alien partner, brokered by “the agency,” enables Lexus to secure “Quasar Power Source Technology that uses the power of the nearest Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN) to travel anywhere in the universe in seconds.”
“The Lexus RC F sports coupe and QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer jet provide the perfect vehicles for our team of Men in Black agents as they protect the galaxy,” Jeffrey Godsick, EVP of Brand Management and Global Partnerships for Sony, said in a statement.
In the film, Lexus vehicles are the official fleet of Men in Black agents around the world.
