From the Steven Spielberg film Minority Report
2004 Lexus Concept Car
It's the future Washington, D.C. in the year 2054. Psychic visions from a team of mutated human beings give the police the ability to stop murders before they occur. This fantastical vision of a possible future was the basis of the 2002 major motion picture Minority Report.
"I've been driving a Lexus SUV," said Steven Spielberg. "I thought Lexus might be interested in going into a speculative future to see what the transportation systems and cars would look like on our highways in fifty years." As shaping the distant future is a risky proposition, Spielberg assembled a team made up of veteran movie car designer Harald Belker, Lexus' design studio, and futurists to speculate future transportation needs of a society "with Lexus ultimately providing styling, luxury, and performance cues" for the car's designs.
What they devised was an advanced, functional design run by fuel cells that theoretically could adjust to horizontal or vertical driving conditions. A minimalist interior with video screens and holograms functioned by voice activation. Advanced safety features include a crash-proof structure and biometric security systems.
Offered by a prominent Texas collector, this movie car driven by Tom Cruise elevates and transforms driving into an environmental experience. While not as complete on the inside as the outside, it represents a unique opportunity to acquire vision of the future as seen through the lens of Lexus and Hollywood. Offered on a bill of sale.
