BMW presented a special edition of the BMW X6 that you may have trouble seeing. The vehicle is spray painted with the “World’s Blackest Black ” coating, Vantablack VBx2, which absorbs more than 99% of visible light.
The BMW Vantablack X6 will be on show at the Frankfurt Motor Show from September 12 to 22, and the third-generation X6 will arrive in showrooms in November.
Ben Jensen, who founded Surrey NanoSystems and invented Vantablack, revealed that automobile manufacturers have contact him to use the coating on their vehicles, but he believed the colour is not suitable for the road yet, and that the Vantablack X6 is a one-off project.
“I think it worked really well on the BMW X6, because of the size of the car, its distinctive shape, and how imposing it is. The BMW X6 in Vantablack looks absolutely fantastic,” said Jensen.
“Developing a Vantablack VBx2 car paint durable enough for daily use is a huge technological challenge,” he said.
