There's something about this that's so black, it's like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

There are new photos of the 2020 BMW X6 ahead of the crossover's public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but you might struggle to see the vehicle because it's wearing a Vantablack VBx2 coating. The substance absorbs more than 99 percent of visible light making this covering the blackest color in the world.

New Mercedes GLE Coupe Extensively Detailed In Four Videos

New Mercedes GLE Coupe Extensively Detailed In Four Videos Longer and wider than its predecessor, the new coupe-SUV gets a more athletic look. Just five months after Porsche introduced the Cayenne Coupe and less than two months after BMW unveiled the new X6, Mercedes is launching its own large coupe-SUV thingy. Now in its second generation, the GLE Coupe adopts a considerably sleeker shape and sportier design combined with a larger footprint. Indeed, it’s 39 millimeters (1.5 inches) longer and 7 mm (0.3 in) wider than the model it replaces, and that should give it a more imposing stance in real life.

Vantablack is a material developed by Surrey NanoSystems in the United Kingdom and is one of the darkest substances known, absorbing up to 99.96% of visible light

Marty Jopson investigates this blackest of black colour " Vantablack ", that has been invented, what it does, and what uses it may have in the future.

BMW partnered with Vantablack maker Surrey Nano Systems and creative agency Levitation 29 to create the world's blackest X6. The playful idea behind the vehicle is to create a new spin on concealing an upcoming model. Rather than using camouflage or extra panels, this incredibly dark color is supposed to make the crossover's styling difficult to discern.

The Vantablack covering creates the desired effect. At least in photos, it's impossible to see any of the details of the 2020 X6's shape. The vehicle looks like a black void other than a few bits of trim, the greenhouse, and the lights. If you'd actually like to see the X6, check out the automaker's previously released gallery, below.

The third-generation X6 has a similar look to the previous models by taking the X5's general appearance and applying a sloping, coupe-like roofline to the back. In the United States, the new model is available as the rear-drive sDrive40i and all-wheel-drive xDrive40i that both use a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six making 335 horsepower (249 kilowatts) and 330 pound-feet (447 Newton-meters) of torque.  There's also the X6 M50i with a  twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 offering 523 hp (390 kW) and 553 lb-feet (750 Nm) of torque. Regardless of engine, buyers get an eight-speed automatic. The interior features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment display.

Prices start at $65,290 (including the $995 destination fee) for an sDrive40i, $67,595 for the xDrive40i, and $86,465 for the M50i. They should begin arriving at showrooms in November.

You can "see" it in person starting next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show We often hear from motoring enthusiasts that best exterior shade on a car is black. It’s also the hardest to keep looking good, because the slightest imperfection shows up like a pimple on prom night.

We first saw this darker-than-dark Bimmer at the end of August, and if you thought those images were photoshopped, here’s a video of the Vantablack X6 in motion to prove otherwise.
