Lexus and “MIB: International” Show Off a Spindle-Grille Spaceship
Remember the old flying Crown Victoria in the 1997 version of “Men in Black”? In the latest film, “MIB: International,” it seems the alien-fighting organization has upgraded its fleet to consist of transforming Lexus RC F models.
In the new movie, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson helm the fictional flying machine. The automaker even had a bit of fun with the press release, stating that the Lexus QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer comes equipped with state-of-the-art alien-fighting technology.
Know the Benefits: Certified pre-owned Lexus models
The QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer’s specs just get wilder from there. It’s got gamma-ray headlamps, an Inter-Galactic Positioning System, and an Amazon Alexa system that understands seven trillion alien languages. Aliens won’t just be heard by the infotainment system, though. Thanks to the QZ’s 31-point safety harness system, every species in the galaxy can get the right ergonomic fit to stay safe behind the wheel.
For those high-speed intergalactic pursuits, the QZ can use the Lexus Quasar Power Source Technology to rocket from 0-60 in a blistering 0.0000000000001 nanoseconds. Agents can get the performance they need with three driving modes: EcoDrive, SportDrive, QuantumDrive. Plus, it’s remarkably efficient, earning a sweet 122 millenia per gallon.
The sleek spaceship is even sporting an MIB-exclusive paint color, called Umbra Black, which Lexus claims is “the darkest black in the universe.”

The real RC F
Of course, the QZ 618 Galactic Enforcer is only available to MIB agents. The 2020 Lexus RC F is the closest thing you can get on Earth. It’s a lightweight V8-powered coupe that delivers 472 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. It boasts a top speed of 168 mph and sprints from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Opt for the Track Edition and you’ll get a car with the best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, capable of zooming from 0-60 in 3.92 seconds. It also sports an aggressive red-and-black interior, complete with high-backed seats and racing pedals.
