Vantablack X6


The World's first Vantablack coated car created in collaboration with Surrey Nanosystems and BMW through Levitation 29.


Levitation 29 put the launch of the new BMW X6 centre stage. By fostering a creative partnership between BMW and Surrey NanoSystems - inventors of Vantablack coatings which are the blackest in the world absorbing more than 99% of visible light – Levitation 29 worked closely with the Surrey NanoSystems engineers to work out the technical and on-the-ground logistics to make the VBX6 a reality.


The new BMW X6 is the first and only vehicle in the world to feature a Vantablack VBx2 paint finish. The design of the BMW X6 provides fascinating contrasts to offset the Vantablack VBx2 coating, which visually alters the viewers perception of the car’s three-dimensional nature. The spectacular one-off vehicle highlights the expressive and precise design language and confident, dominant and muscular appearance of the new BMW X6 to perfection.
