April 1, 2018

Munich.
With an unmistakable design, a cool appearance and sporty urban genes, the new BMW X2 (combined fuel consumption: 6.2-4.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 142–119 g/km)* makes a self-assured statement in its category and within the BMW X model family. Now the Sports Activity Coupé goes a step further as it follows an especially distinctive fashionable trend: from now on the spectrum of paint finishes for the BMW X2 is extended to include an additional colouring as part of the range of Original BMW Accessories – the "Digital Camo" wrapping. This is a full-coverage multicoloured matt wrapping in digital camouflage look which especially lends further emphasis to the athletic proportions of the BMW X2. The asymmetrical pattern made up of dark, grey and light colour areas deliberate echoes the exterior paint finish Galvanic Gold which caused such a stir at the presentation of the new model. In this colour finish the BMW X2 boldly reflects an extrovert lifestyle; at the same time the wrapping protects the vehicle from damage caused by stone chip.

One particularly effective feature of this striking appearance is the visual integration of the headlights. The classic dual circular elements of the LED daytime driving light and the fog lamps peer out of the camouflage like the eyes of a hunting predator. In combination with wheel arches that give an even more flared impression, this makes for an overall profile that is very powerful. The BMW X2 appears to be ready to pounce at any time.

The limited BMW X2 sneakers developed in collaboration with the shoe manufacturer VOR already provided an opportunity to display individual style. The wrapping now available exclusively for the compact Sports Activity Coupé is perfect all those enterprising enough to strike out on a new path with the BMW X2.

From prototype camouflage to sought-after equipment detail.
The camouflage wrapping intentionally echoes the colouring of the pre-series prototypes. Even before the model's market launch, these prototypes attracted a lot of attention during test runs on public roads and later at the Fashion Week in Milan. The manufacturer and dealerships received increasing numbers of requests for this charismatic vehicle in precisely this colouring. A dedicated community was even established on social media. Now the wrapping "Digital Camo" is available exclusively for the BMW X2 as an Original BMW Accessory, independent of other equipment features.

M Sport and M Sport X details are not affected.
In the equipment lines M Sport and M Sport X, the specific characteristic details are not affected: the wrapping does not cover the high-gloss attachment parts at the front and rear and the details in Frozen Grey. A first model displaying the new powerful appearance was presented to the public on 17 March at the launch of the BMW X2 held at the BMW sales subsidiary in Fröttmaning, Munich.

The "Digital Camo" wrapping can be applied within four days. Prices and availability upon request.

They'd never screw up so bad as to call something "digital camo" when it doesn't fit that definition.

A day early for us in the us. Would have been more believable if they used nyias images photoshopped to show an unveiling

Once again, where a few photos would say it all -- and in this case do -- BMW marketing is not to be silenced! Hundreds and hundreds of unnecessary words.

Can't marketing just STFU?

PS: It's horrible. Has to be an April Fool's joke.

Good catch.

I think last year they did a press release for a BMW powerwheels type thing for puppies. That was way better than this.

Wow - that camo’s really good on the X2 - I can’t see anything but the wheels, grill, lights and window frames!
