Lexus LS400 Champagne Glass Test

Original commercial:

Retested years later to see if it can still do it:

Not bad :face_with_monocle:

Wonder how bad it is for those universal joints to go 240 km/h with the suspension in full drop because it’s on a lift. In the original commercial they did it on a dyno so the suspension was loaded.

Good catch. I just assumed they were lifting it to put it on a hub dyno, but they never really show it.

Stupid test. I bet any vehicle could do that.

Today, sure. But back in the early '90s this was a bigger deal.
