The exterior paint of the BMW X6 Vantablack absorbs more than 99% of visible light, which is considered the blackest in the world.
BMW’s new crossover will appear at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The BMW X6 Vantablack is coated with special Vantablack VBx2 paint, and can be considered the first car in the world painted so dark.
The German automaker has teamed up with Surrey Nano Systems and Levitation 29 to create the world’s darkest X6. The idea comes from turning the BMW X6 Vantablack into a car that gets a lot of attention because it has too special paint colors.
With this paint color, it is difficult to identify the details of the car. The BMW X6 Vantablack looks like a black block, completely different from the previous paint.
The third-generation BMW X6 has the same design as the previous model, molded in the style of the X5, only the rear end resembles the coupe.
In the US, there are two variants: sDrive40i drives RWD and xDrive40i drives AWD. Both are powered by a 3.0L 6-cylinder turbocharged engine, producing 335 horsepower and 447 Nm of torque.
In addition, there is also an X6 M50i equipped with a 4.4L V8 supercharged engine, producing 523 horsepower, 750 Nm of torque. All models use 8-speed automatic transmission. The interior has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the same size infotainment screen.
