This Vantablack BMW is the darkest car in the world

The new BMW X6 will be with us soon, being launched at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. But this specific one is rather unique – it is covered in Vantablack, the darkest manmade material in the world. Mike Fernie gives us a walkaround of this ultra dark car and discovers the science behind Vantablack’s ability to be the blackest of black. Standing for Vertically Aligned Nano Tube Array, this material can make 3D shapes completely disappear which – in the aesthetically-challenged X6’s case – isn’t too bad a result. Oh, and there was a grenade-proof X5 there too. Enjoy the video!

    Cute and stuff, but kinda dumb, like, this is so easy to not see, that’s literally the point of this paint, easy to get in a wreck

  2. hassan ali on July 20, 2020 at 1:45 pm

    this is incognito car for me

    They made something darker than vantablack so you’re wrong

  4. Villy on July 20, 2020 at 1:46 pm

    It’s not Vantablack, obviously

  5. Zafwan2k on July 20, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    Cool 👏 me : how do you do that

  6. One Sub By 2021 on July 20, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    Me: driving at night, oh look, a parking spot
    This car: Allow me to introduce myself

  7. Tasker Matic on July 20, 2020 at 1:55 pm

    You’re going to be using the aircon a lot in the summertime. If you’re not parked in the shade it might not even be possible to get into this car on a hot day.

  8. şans on July 20, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    now make a black 3.0/singularity V3 car

  9. Belal Al-Badani on July 20, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Am not sure about you wearing black with that brown shirt 🤔

  10. Onky Muhammad on July 20, 2020 at 1:58 pm

  11. hassan ali on July 20, 2020 at 1:59 pm

  12. Tom McCann on July 20, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    One rain shower will spoil the fun

  13. BLΛCK ViPΞR on July 20, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    In Germany we say:

    *It’s not Straßenzulässig*

  14. Hayfani Hidayaturachman on July 20, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    my brain imagine this car gt crash in the night

  15. Robby Bobby Robby on July 20, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Perfect for driving at night. Not!

  16. LBP on July 20, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    Roadmen probably nutting over this

  17. Mr. Satyre on July 20, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    It must get stupidly hot. I wonder how long the paint lasts before it degrades under all that energy. Probably can’t get wet, either. Looks amazing, but definitely not practical for a car.

  18. Gustavo G on July 20, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Seems like a bad idea on summer

  19. Yago on July 20, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Like si vienes de emilio

  20. Dmitry Tannill on July 20, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    Typical BMW, strange and useful

  21. YouTube Guy on July 20, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Police after seeing this car go *SKKKRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*

  22. GamerPlayer282 yt on July 20, 2020 at 2:10 pm

    This is how to censor a car that you have never seen

  23. Stephen InGermany on July 20, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    Shame all would-be kidnappers now know about this button thanks to videos like this lol

  24. JR_113 on July 20, 2020 at 2:12 pm

  25. jaydasaybelle on July 20, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    Wow ❤️❤️

  26. Morsa on July 20, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    darkest man made material ever made

  27. The Ultimate Jack on July 20, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    Imagine the tail lights are out on this thing, and you’re just driving at night and you run into the darkness.

  28. Olivia Poulson on July 20, 2020 at 2:16 pm

    My s10

  29. Norrin Radd on July 20, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    Trash

  30. WvlfDarkfire on July 20, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    That’s insane! I love it

  31. Praneesh A.K on July 20, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    Batman’s looking for one.

  32. Bruh on July 20, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    You have to pay to unlock this car

  33. Sovv Suh on July 20, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    imagine getting hit by this car in the night because it camoflaughes into the night sky. that was dark (see what i did there?)

  34. Hey Im Glue on July 20, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Ironic I just got an bmw commercial

  35. Minej Mosuris on July 20, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    This car would be invisible during night time… Imagine seeing a floating window coming towards you with a man behind it at like 10 p.m.😂

  36. Super Shifter on July 20, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Imagine parking it somewhere and then not being able to find it😂

  37. Super Shifter on July 20, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Why would someone buy this? It looks like levitating windows with a gate on the front and 2 headlamps.

  38. B G on July 20, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    I want to see inside the BMW car. It needs to be the same color inside! 🤗

  39. One Sub By 2021 on July 20, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    Imagine driving at night only seeing some lights and a grill fly by 😂

  40. Martin Bachmann on July 20, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    Why didn’t you try to show the car against a black background.
    I guess driving that thing in a dark night is.. dangerous…

  41. One Sub By 2021 on July 20, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    That car just hasn’t been unlocked yet

  42. iulia 16 on July 20, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Nope,vantablack should be matte in order to be invisible.That gloss is useless.

  43. Roone Briley on July 20, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    Double air con? Don’t see this selling in Arizona.

  44. 𖥠 ꧁Æ♱ℍᴲᮄℜᴲⅅ꧂𖥠 on July 20, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    Title: Vantablack BMW.
    Video: This BMW is covered in Vantablck, actually it’s not covered in Vantablack it’s just covered in black paint but we’re pretending it’s Vantablack.

    So, basically, you’re lying. Literally lying.

  45. Ben Henderson on July 20, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    *Imagine getting ruined over by that car* 😳💀

  46. Nains z on July 20, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    You have the right to hit and run at night not your fault son

  47. Omar Mohamed on July 20, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Never knew ovens come with a set of wheels now

  48. 보이스피시VOICEFISH on July 20, 2020 at 2:41 pm

  49. Deinsch20 on July 20, 2020 at 2:41 pm
