This invisible BMW VBX6 is coated in a black paint that is so dark, it can barely be seen at all.

It can’t actually be produced in this color because it’s too dark, and would therefore be too dangerous on the roads.

The color is called Vantablack, and absorbs a huge percentage of the light that hits it, meaning that it is super dark.

That’s because of the nanotechnology in this car’s remarkable coating, which means it blends into the dark unlike any other vehicle you’ll have seen.

Elsewhere in the video, we checked out some of the BMW Protected Vehicles range, seeing how the vehicles keep their precious cargo safe against attacks from guns, grenades, and all manner of weapons.

One thing is certain – BMW keep pushing the boat out.
