Cool Sakhir Orange BMW M5 F10 Preview

Sakhir Orange BMW M5 F10 Preview

Per the recently released 2013 M5 US Order Guide, the BMW M5 F10 will add a new color as of July production, and it's most eye catching color yet - Sakhir Orange Metallic. This exterior paint color has been the launch/marketing color for the 2013 M6 coupe and for anyone who wants to be noticed in their M5, this color would surely do it

We've seen and posted photos of every standard and recommended Individual M5 color, but since there are no photos yet of a Sakhir Orange M5, we've rendered up these few previews to help those who are contemplating the color for order.

Finally a M5 color that inspires
Kinda digging the M5-as-1M play, a much larger car with the color similar to the tiny M.
It looks marvelous from the side back in the sun, a color that doesn't make the shadowline window trim look cheap and out of place.
I like!

First color that I didn't like much at all. I'm sure it looks good, but not as good as one expects M5 to look like, not the color of a car of this size and status. In my opinion this color would suit 1M, M3 and smaller cars more.

Reminds me of a sportsman dressed in overly tight clothes which turns to look bad. M5 is not a "Look at me!" kind of car.

That is nasty - and not in a good way. The rear looks terrible with the red lights.

+1

not to mention the blue or gold brakes you get. Talk about clashing colors

This is definitely the color to go for...something I'll consider when I order an M5 in the future...with the yellow calipers, this car will look awesome!!!

My kneejerk reaction was to be all over this when I saw the pics, but having looked at it for the last 3 minutes it's already wearing on me. I think it'd be awesome to see one drive past me or spot it parked somewhere, but I doubt I could live with this. I remain convinced that Tanzanite Blue ordered through Individual would be my top M5 color choice.

Ballsy choice for an M5.

It wouldn't be my first choice of colour for this car. However its nice to see them adding to the standard palate of colours out there. I'm getting kind of bored of all cars being black, white, silver or grey. I hope that they give us more choices for the next M3/4 as well.

ehhh...not a huge fan, but the car is still beautiful. maybe if a few things were done to it the color would pop a little more.
