Lexus isn’t a newcomer to the world of bizarre vehicle concepts. Back in October, the company introduced the Origami Car, a working electric IS sedan made out of cardboard. Fast forward to today and Lexus is showing off an NX crossover with ice wheels — yes, ice wheels. This project, aptly called Ice-Tyre Lexus NX, features a set of hand-sculptured tires created from multiple blocks of ice, each one intended to recreate the look of Lexus’ alloy wheel and its companion Yokohama winter tire.
The automaker says it took three months to put everything together, which includes having to freeze the Lexus NX for five days in a sub-22-degree Fahrenheit (30 degrees Centigrade) temperatures. Wild.
