BMW has unveiled a special edition 2020 BMW X6 that you might struggle to see. The vehicle is painted with the world’s blackest black coating Vantablack VBx2 that absorbs more than 99% of visible light.
The one-off X6 sprayed with a Vantablack VBx2 finish will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, where BMW will premiere the third-generation of the vehicle, according to a statement from the automaker. The BMW project is the first time the color has been applied to a vehicle.
Earlier, British artist Anish Kapoor drew the ire of many when he bought the exclusive rights to Vantablack in 2016, but the Vantablack VBx2 is a slightly different material.
It’s considered super-black while still giving some reflection from every angle, which makes it more appropriate than the original pigment for use as a vehicle paint finish, according to BMW.
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. Via: Samaa
