Making things out of ice is one of the least practical things you can do from an engineering standpoint: Not only does the stuff melt in above-freezing temperatures, but its highly brittle, slippery, and breakable too. But that didn’t stop Lexus from giving one of its NX luxury SUVs a set of ice wheels for a project seen in a video entitled Lexus on Ice: NX Ice Wheels.

Lexus on Ice: NX Ice Wheels was made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts of Lexus and Hamilton Ice Sculptors, who started by collecting water from a moving source, a trick for achieving clarity once the water is frozen. Then, they sculpted their ice wheels/”tires” around an acrylic core and some LEDs to support the weight of the NX and spice up their appearance, before subjecting the vehicle to five days of -30°C temperatures.

You can see how it all went down by watching Lexus on Ice: NX Ice Wheels below. If this demonstration of the Lexus NX’s cold-weather capabilities make you want to get more information on the SUV, you can do so at Lexus’ official site here.
