Thumbs up Sakhir Orange M4 Coupe Seen for First Time

Sakhir Orange M4 Coupe Seen for First Time

We recently revealed to you the colors for the upcoming 2014 M3/M4 via the dealer demo order guide, which reveals several eye catching colors, including Austin Yellow Metallic, Yas Marina Blue Metallic and Sakhir Orange Metallic.

Austin Yellow Metallic has already been previewed by way of the M4 Concept car (painted in Aurum Dust) and we recently posted the first look and swatches of Yas Marina Blue.

Now have a good look at how the M4 Coupe looks in Sakhir Orange Metallic, seen here with the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

Sakhir Orange is also a standard color for the F10 M5. For more views of how the color looks under different lighting, see our F10 M5 Sakhir Orange Thread.

I really like it in the side profile shot as it looks like a brighter more brilliant orange/red. In the rest it looks like more of a burnt auburn color, and not as good to me.

Looks pretty good, definitely a lot darker shade of orange in those pics. Wish the camo was off!

Glad to see this! Tbh I'm not like the color as much as I liked it on a M6, but this is a great find and makes the wait that much more exciting!

Love the trunk lid spoiler. Don't see too much of a difference in the front from the MSport 4 series bumper.

Pretty nice but I've decided it's not a color for me. It looks better on a coupe like the M4 and M6 while SO M5s tends to look like giant pumpkins and I think that could carry over to other sedans like the M3.

I would've liked a brighter shade with a less burnt orange look. Would love an orange car but don't think this will be what I choose.

And just as a reminder, here's the F80 in Sakhir Orange that was spotted a while back, wearing the same amount of camo, carbon composite brakes, and black wheels:

Am I the only one who doesn't like how Orange is the new Red?

I wish they bring back Imola or at least have Melbourne.

Sakhir is ok but not a true red replacement.

Looks great in Sakhir I just might get my second orange M in a row! Thanks for sharing.

^I did notice the gap between the a-pillar and the mirror. Nice aero and design element!
