Lexus LFA Exhaust Note Shatters Champagne Glass in new "Perfect Pitch" Video


The champagne glass has been with Lexus since the beginning. Back in 1989, Lexus launched the LS luxury sedan by revving the car's engine while a pyramid of champagne glasses sat atop the hood – unmoved. Now Lexus is putting a new twist with a short video spot where a lone champagne flute is shattered by the sound generated by the LFA's 4.8-liter V10 engine.

According to Lexus, the company employed, "a renowned physicist from a leading university" help set up the test – including discovering exactly what type of champagne glass has the same frequency as the LFA's exhaust note. When the pitch of the glass matches the pitch created from the 552-hp V10 (somewhere between 7,000 and 9,000 rpm), the glass shatters – without the use of special effects or CGI.

The LFA has been praised for its exceptional sounding V10 engine, which Lexus now also offers as a ring tone for free. Download yours here:
