Cool Sakhir Orange F10 M5 Revealed Among Fleet of M5s for BMW M School

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Sakhir Orange F10 M5 Revealed Among Fleet of M5s for BMW M School
39
COMMENTS

The F10 M5 has hit BMW's Spartanburg Performance Center in force. There are now at least 15 new M5s being prepped for duty at the BMW M School in Spartanburg!

Among this fleet is the very first Sakhir Orange F10 M5 we have seen. Sakhir Orange is a new color available for 2013 M5s. You can see photos of all the other available M5 colors in our photo threads compilation.

All the M School M5s will be equipped with M Carbon Ceramic Brakes, an option which is actually being delayed for customer cars until next year.

Thanks to Philip for the photos.

That looks even better than I thought it would! Definitely a headtuner color. Nice spotting.

Not bad, but I'm definitely sticking with MCB for mine.

Funny this thread is started about an hour after I was on BMWUSA.com building an ///M5 out and saw that color and wondered "wonder how that looks in person". There was another color I wanted to see in person....some type of silver that had a weird name, forget.....

Cheers,

I may have finally found my M5 color (up to this point, I've been considering a special order Interlagos).

Does anyone know how Sakhir compares to Valencia from the 1M Coupe? Although I like Valencia for the 1, I think the M5 needs something just a bit less electric.

The 1M is Orange; Sakhir is red with an orange hint. Two very different colors.
