Lexus SUV driving on ice wheels will blow your mind

The world keeps getting crazier. Last week we showed you a bed that can swallow you during earthquakes, and now we’re back with a car that’s driving on a set of wheels made out of ice. Say what?

Lexus recently tapped a team of “master craftsmen” tasked with one thing: make the Lexus NX drive on wheels made out of ice. And they actually did it, as we can see in the video above. You’ll note the team sculpted down to the very fine details of the wheels, including even the tire treads and the full rims. The video doesn’t answer many questions, though, like how braking would work or how long those wheels are capable of holding the weight of the SUV.

Color me impressed, though.
