Photos: Extraterrestrial adventures in the Infiniti FX45

Inspired by the space-age design of the 2007 Infiniti FX45 and the myriad features of its navigation system, we decided to test its tech by taking it on an extraterrestrial adventure. With some help from Google Maps, we devised a modified interplanetary trek around the streets of San Francisco. Check out the snaps from our galactic goose chase.

We started out by plugging in all our destinations to the FX45's navigation system. With our final destination set as the Green Earth supermarket, we programmed stop-off points at a number of planets along the way.

We stopped for a rest at Uranus Terrace. Careful with that pronunciation.

Followed by Venus Street. This is where women are from, apparently.

Before heading onto Mars Street. Men are supposed to be from here, although there was nobody about when we arrived.

Finally, not content with our own solar system, we decided on an intergalactic deviation to the Vulcan Staircase. Unfortunately, lack of front-fender ground clearance meant that we couldn't get up it.

The reality was a lot less space-age than we had been led to expect by the map screen.
