Presented in Frankfurt the unique BMW VBX6 makes a strange impression on him I see nothing. But if you can not see the details of the body in the photos, do not rush to run to the eye doctor – this is done on purpose.
In partnership with Surray Nano Systems, the Bavarians painted the cross-coupe in a special, specially designed Vantablack color that absorbs up to 99% of sunlight: this paint includes specially created nano-tubes. It is officially called the blackest color in the world.
Thus, against the background of the black hole, which can be said to have turned the body of BMW X6, to the fore in front of the observer go smaller details-illuminated grille, lighting or wheel design. By the way, BMW is the first and so far the only one in the world decided to apply this color to the car, getting a kind of stealth fighter on wheels.
Will the Bavarians to sell VBX6, or the version cross-coupe will remain the result of the original experiment is still unknown, but in any case, BMW is pretty far-reaching plans for the use of color Vantablack VBx2. Thus, the company's management is already discussing ideas for other applications of nano-paint – for example, to paint the bodies of factory prototypes with it. The complete absence of opportunities to consider details can strip work all photographers-spies. However, this coating still needs to be finalized: while it is very fragile and easily damaged.
