When an automaker wants to tease a new vehicle, it'll usually wrap the car in camouflage, which obscures its most interesting details, leaving everyone (ideally) champing at the bit for more. For the Frankfurt Motor Show and the release of the third-gen BMW X6 , the German automaker took a slightly different approach.

BMW this week unveiled a third-generation X6 covered in Vantablack. While nearly every corner of the car is obscured, it's pretty easy to make out the roofline and the grille, the latter of which is illuminated because that's the world we live in now. Not that it matters, because the X6 debuted ahead of the Vantablack model's debut.

If you're not familiar with Vantablack, it's the creation of Surrey NanoSystems. This vehicle was covered in the Vantablack VBx2 spray-on coating, which is used for architectural and scientific applications. It reflects just 1% of the light sent its way, removing an item's three-dimensional appearance and making you feel like you're staring into a black hole. It achieves this reflectivity by using carbon nanotubes in vertical alignment, which absorbs nearly all light, converting it to heat. And it works: I can't see a damn thing in that top photo, save for some tiny angles along the bottom of the bumper.

2019 Frankfurt Motor Show: Hits, Misses, and Revelations

  2019 Frankfurt Motor Show: Hits, Misses, and Revelations The best, the worst, and the eye-openers from this year’s IAA event.Aside from the conspicuous absences, what stood out most at this year's show was electrification—not just talk, but actual cars. Production-model debuts included the Porsche Taycan, Volkswagen ID 3, and Honda E, and most of the concepts were electric or electrified. Even the show's biggest star, the Land Rover Defender, offers a hybrid powertrain, albeit of the mild variety.

This Vantablack variant allows for the slightest bit of light reflection while remaining “super black ,” according to Surrey While Jensen says that should make it possible for a human’s eyes and brain to process some depth information, the Vantablack X 6 looks like a two-dimensional lump of an SUV in

It's a real shame I used Spinal Tap's "none more black" joke a few weeks ago, but then again, who could have predicted this?

Like the X5 before it, the X6 is available with I6 and V8 gas powertrains, and a plug-in hybrid could sneak its way in there, too. As with previous generations, it wouldn't be obscene to expect a hi-po X6 M variant in the future, but that one is likely a year away at the earliest.

Even though it won't be made available for purchase in Vantablack, BMW intends to shove the SUV into showrooms in November, seeing as how its X5 sibling has been on sale for some time now. Like its predecessors, the third-generation X6 will be built at BMW's plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

2020 Ducati Monster 1200 S Black On Black .
The premium Monster goes completely dark for the new model year.The Monster 1200 first appeared in 2014 with a premium S version coming in 2017, but it has never been available in all-black—so for the 2020 model year, Ducati decided to dunk the 1200 S in a barrel of black paint. And what's this model being called, officially? If you guessed Monster 1200 Black on Black, bravo. So there’s no red on it at all? There is, but it’s just a touch of crimson here and there; the Monster logo on the fuel tank, some tastefully restrained accents on two of the wheel spokes, a dash of color on the seat stitching, and the Brembo name on the calipers. That's it.
