A Lexus LS mule has been spotted in Arizona looking more Mad Max than luxury flagship:

The rear bumper, separated spindle grille, and overall size give the vehicle away as the current LS — considering the next-generation LS has been already been revealed, this mule is likely to be testing a new powertrain than some future Lexus model.

My guess? We’re looking at a test mule for the long-rumored LS fuelcell vehicle — the rumor is that Lexus wants to have a hydrogen-powered version of their flagship ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and advanced testing in the Arizona heat makes a lot of sense. What do you think?
