This light-absorbing paint makes things look two-dimensional.
BMW this week unveiled a third-generation X6 covered in Vantablack paint.
Consider this the last major teaser before the chopped-roof utility vehicle makes its debut at Frankfurt in two weeks' time.
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.
Vantablack 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.
After its debut in Frankfurt, 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.
