When a new prototype BMW heads onto the road for testing (or any brand’s test mules for that matter) it’s usually covered in a dazzle camouflage. Most likely anybody that has seen the dazzle camouflage in spy shots or in real life has wondered why it looks the way it does. Well in this episode of “Changing Lanes”, Sara and Jonathan explain why the patterns look the way they do, where they have their surprising origins, and also explain the term “Erlkönig”, used in Germany to describe covered test mules.
