The Lexus LS400 debuted in 1989 with a splash - or rather no splash at all - featuring in an advert that showed a stack of champagne glasses atop the bonnet whilst driving at 145mph on a rolling road. Has this particular challenge stood the test of time?

Some Lexus enthusiasts in America decided to see if a modern LS460 could also leave a set of champagne glasses undisturbed with the pedal somewhere near the metal - they can't have been that confident though, they didn't even use actual champagne.
