Some car owners have a particular liking for the black color, but do you like your cars so blacked out that they reach a level where they don’t even reflect any light?

Well, someone does, and they put the darkest material ever created on their ride to come up with the blackest car ever.

Well, it’s not the only ride with that spec, as several others have done it before.

But this particular one was part of a lab experiment, and a YouTuber shared how he did it.

Using the world’s darkest material

The YouTuber posted the video of the entire process on his YouTube channel called The Action Lab.

So, how did he do it?

He used one of the world’s darkest materials, called Musou Black Fabric Kiwami.

That’s right — it’s a piece of fabric and not actual paint that you could just spray on a car.

Although there is a Musou Black paint, it’s not as black as the Kiwami variant fabric.

The material, made by a company called KoPro, is no joke — it absorbs 99.905 percent of visual light.

That means it won’t reflect any light you throw at it, even on a bright sunny day.

Other materials like Vantablack do exist, which technically absorb more light at 99.96 percent, but its maker requires a sales quote request to even purchase it.

This ‘invisible’ BMW VBX6 has a coat of Vantablack, and it’s easily one of the blackest cars ever.

Creating the blackest car ever

The YouTuber who tried the experiment on the star of today’s show used his good ‘ol Nissan sedan.

So, how do you put the world’s darkest fabric on a car?

If you were thinking of glue, you’d be absolutely right.

He started by cutting the fabric according to the car’s layout and applying glue all over the exterior.

It might seem messy, but if it works, it works.

On one hand, we have wraps that are brimming with colors, while some are going all-black.

It’s easy to distinguish the blackest car ever during the day because there’s much light everywhere.

However, it’s a different story during the night.

If the lights are off, it will almost be invisible unless you flash a bright light directly onto the car.

Even then, the areas like the wheels and the chrome grille would be the only ones actually reflecting anything.

It certainly doesn’t sound very safe, but – in truth – that’s not really what the project was all about.

Just a general reminder, when driving at night, it’s always a good idea to make sure that everyone else can see you.
