Vantablack painted BMW X6/BMW X5 Protection XR6

Pretty interesting, cool to see more information about the factory armored BMW "Protection" line as well.

clee1982 makes a very good point. This paint is a road hazard. Even driving at night, it's helpful to see the car's silhouette. What would other drivers see when X6 painted in VantaBlack is in the blind spot?

The marketing buzz around Vantablack paint is undoubtedly a result of BMW wanting to maintain brand awareness. I just hope it's not at the expense of building better suspensions or asking suppliers to maintain quality of parts, like high pressure fuel pumps.

Vbx2 isn't available for civilian purchase and requires a Military Export Control Licence to acquire. It's also extremely expensive...approx $75k per liter.

Wow didn't know this was a photograph of a real car. This will turn heads on the street. Is this glossy or matte black? How does it feel to the touch?

When I saw the video first thing that came to my mind was the movie "Who framed Roger Rabbit." Don't ask me why...

I hated it at the beginning of the video. I loved it by the end! But given that the paint job cost more than the car, it's way out of my league.

They used it everywhere EXCEPT on the grille...
Instead, they are lighting up the grille! They have different mindsets.

It's all fun and games until someone crashes into your parked car at night.

Not sure id really blame them. And for that reason alone, I'm out.
