Lexus LFA news - Video: LFA breaks glass - 2010
It is a question every one of us has contemplated, often late at night, faced with the terrifying nothingness of the universe and the seeming futility of human endeavour:
Can a Lexus LFA break a champagne glass with its exhaust note alone?
The answer is… yes. Lexus has released a Very White Advert showing its V10 monster destroying a delicate flute with sound alone. Lexus says there’s no CGI at play here: instead, it employed a physicist to calculate exactly what flavour of glass would be most shatterable.
We’re not sure what this important scientific experiment proves, exactly. Don’t invite a Lexus LFA to a posh garden party, perhaps.
TopGear’s attempts to shatter a sturdy pint glass by revving a Mitsubishi Shogun diesel REALLY LOUD have so far proved unsuccessful.
