The new BMW model shifts the wheels – from gray to white paint at the touch of a button.
The chameleon effect on the exterior of the iX electric motor revealed in an online video.
The German automaker is expected to unveil the innovation, which is said to be temperature-sensitive, at the CES technology show in Las Vegas.
Fans praised it as “like something made for James Bond”.
CES is an annual trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association and often hosts showcases of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry.
A video clip on Twitter shows the technology in action, as the iX, bathed in a simple dark gray color, suddenly turns white, after a man standing next to the SUV activated the system.
Then the paint starts to turn from gray to white.
At first, fans couldn’t believe it was real.
One person said: “I think this is a clever twitter edit. The man looks great.
“It would be really great if someone could recommend a temperature-sensitive wrap for cars.”
