Meet the new Lexus Nx on Ice Wheels!!!

Ice WheelsIce Wheels. This is one of those situations when the headline says pretty much everything- It’s just a Lexus NX with its “tires” and wheels made of frozen water. To make the stunt happen Lexus worked with a British ice sculpting company that laser-scanned the real wheels of the vehicle and then recreated them in ice. After “mission completed” the NX kept freezing for 5 days at -30 Celsius degrees and it was ready to finally, roll out.

Meet the new Lexus Nx on Ice Wheels!!!

We must say that the stunt is pretty impressive both from an engineering and a design perspective as the curb weight of it is probably hovering around 4,000 pounds, however, all that it matters is that it looks mind-blowing. Choosing a time of the year to drive this machine on ice wheels could be tricky, because in winter we avoid ice and the summer will melt those Ice Wheels in a split second, still we would love to take this one for a ride!
