If you are looking for that reach out to Lockheed skunkworks. Maybe they can make an automobile version of the SR-71 Blackbird.

An M4 in this color and illuminated larger grills could very well be the coolest car on the planet.

All black everything

Everything should be Vanta Blacked. It should just look like one large black hole moving down the street.

cool but looks like you're a few levels away from unlocking the car.

Hey at least it hides the ugly lines of the X6. Now they need to hide the hideous glowing grill.

In all honesty I like how the paint looks but I have a hard enough time keeping BSM clean. I can't even imagine how hard that is to clean

I'll try to use a charitable/polite adjective which should describe my feelings about that paint job: abominable.

I find it suspicious that they don't show any outdoor, full-sun pics of the VB car. Pretty sure it would be like riding Disney's Haunted Mansion with the lights on. Or Space mountain. You'd be like "I paid extra for this?? It's just a car with black paint".

Haha, yeah maybe they'll offer to paint it everyday to keep the coatings fresh. :-)

I bet At night you'd only see grills coming up behind you at a high rate of speed. Like someone's driving a barbecue grill right into you.

I wonder if this makes it almost impossible to get a speed reading using a laser gun. Hmmm.

Does anyone know if this will be a colour option on the X6M or on any BMW ?

If not are there paint shops that will do it ?
