Looking over the BMW F80 M3 configurator on the German website, we couldn’t decide which color is the best for the new M car. Some said the brand new Yas Marina Blue shade is the perfect fit for a perfect car and we all thought BMW knew something when they created this color especially for the 2015 M3 but then...
We stumbled upon a couple of shots of the new super sedan in Sakhir Orange and the debate stopped instantly as the car looked absolutely breathtaking.

The way it changed its hue depending on the light and how it matched the black wheels and the CFRP roof is unmatchable by any other color. At the moment you can have your pick out of 7 other choices, including Austin Yellow, Sapphire Black, Mineral White, Silverstone Grey II, Mineral Grey and Alpine White, of course. However, none come even close to this one.

The color we’re talking about was initially developed for the new M6 but it was so popular, it was quickly demanded for other vehicles too, including the new M3 and M4. The name of the color comes from the Sakhir Desert in Bahrain where the Formula 1 track is located, as is the case with a lot of BMW’s paints, for example:

- Estoril Blue named after Autodromo do Estoril, in Portugal
- Laguna Seca Blue, named after the track in the USA with the same name
- Melbourne Red, named after teh Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Australia

Bottom line, we think an Sakhir Orange BMW M3 with 19 inch M 437 Style wheels in black is all you can wish for. Don’t believe us? Check the photos!
