Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Refined and silky inline-six,
punchy acceleration,
modern and high-budget interior.

Cons
Opting for the coupe version costs $4150 and reduces practicality,
optional extras can bring the total to more than six figures,
BMW offers a twin-turbo V-8 at this price point.

If you thought the 2020 BMW X6's design was bold, you clearly haven't seen it painted in the blackest black exterior color: Vantablack. BMW is gearing up to show the Vantablack X6 at the Frankfurt auto show next month, and we're curious to see what it looks like in person. YouTube user Phoebe Heess beat us to the punch and posted the video below, but we wish it were longer.How is it so, so black? VANTA stands for Vertically Aligned Nano Tube Array, and it's essentially a matrix made from microscopic bits of carbon. Instead of reflecting light the way normal automotive finishes do, it absorbs the light and turns it to heat. We'd suggest BMW not leave the Vantablack X6 parked in the sun too long.

If you’ve ever seen the 2020 BMW X6 wearing the Vantablack VBx2 coating, you know how trippy it getsThe Vantablack VBx2 coating is so black it’s hard to even describe it. But it’s not someone’s figment of the imagination anymore. The 2020 BMW X6 Vantablack is a real thing, and we’re going to see it in the flesh in Frankfurt for the very first time. Like most people, I don’t know what to expect out of it when it shows up. What I do know is I want to see it, as I’m sure most people want to, as well.It’s different because Bimmer partnered with Surrey Nano Systems and creative Levitation 29 to bring this color to life.

The paint colour is so dark, it's said to make the vehicle look two-dimensional, allowing BMW to show off its light-up grille.BMW will use the Frankfurt motor show to unveil a stealthy special-edition X6, finished in a colour called 'Vantablack'.According to the company, the show car is the 'first and only vehicle in the world' to feature the finish, dubbed the 'world's blackest black' by its British creators.
The paint was initially developed to coat space-bound componentry, and can be applied in seriously extreme temperatures.
