We know what you're thinking. You've seen the headline and you don't believe for a second that BMW has created a car that can change colour. Well, strap yourselves in, because this incredible vehicle is like something straight out of a James Bond movie. 

Using E Ink displays, BMW has created a car that will shift colour at the press of a button. The vehicle (aptly named the IX Flow) smoothly transitions from white to black and can even sport a geometric pattern. The E Ink technology is so advanced, that the car can even change the colour of its wheels, or only change the colour of specific car parts like the bonnet or the boot.
