The German car maker is expected to unveil the innovation, believed to be temperature sensitive, at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.
Fans hailed it as “like something made for James Bond”.
The CES is an annual trade show organised by the Consumer Technology Association, and typically hosts presentations of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry.
A video clip on Twitter shows the tech in action, as the iX bathed in a simple shade of dark grey, suddenly changes to white, after a man standing next to the SUV activated the system.
The paint then begins to transition from grey to white.
Fans couldn’t believe it was real at first.
