April fools one month earlier??

J/K. I would like to see some proper Lexus authentication of how legit this video is.

If Lexus can truly make a hydrogen hybrid without losing any of the Lexus LFA typical naturally aspirated traits then I am simply stumped.

Also, if the LFA really is going that fast, why is the spoiler not deployed??

I am trying to figure out if this is someone just spreading rumors for the hell of it or if it looks legit.

The more I think about it, the more skeptical I become.

A hydrogen engine is a completely different thing than a gasoline engine. So it is quite implausible that the LFA V10 simply just got converted to a hydrogen engine (since it says emissions are only water) without loss of any characteristics such as, sound, redline etc.

Lexus must do it maybe use the FL-LC as a prototype for Hydrogen testing.

There had been rumor of this mule floating around for the last 2 years (well after LFA prototypes already were being tested in the US and Europe)

Lols. I wish it was real. But that definitely does not look authentic.

I don't think it's real. But it may be.
