At recent auto shows I had the privilege to hold long and meaningful conversations with Florian Nissl, BMW M3/M4 Exterior Designer, and Domagoj Dukec, BMW’s Head of Exterior Design, a charismatic and very talented designer.
Among many topics, from front-wheel drive to lightweight materials, we touched on the topic of best color choice for the new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe. While many of us already associate the F80 M3 with the Yas Marina launch color and the F82 M4 with the Austin Yellow, the exterior color palette is quite extensive and diversified: Alpine White, Mineral Grey Metallic, Sakhir Orange, Black Sapphire Metallic, Silverstone Metallic and Mineral White Metallic.
So I had to ask: if I were to buy tomorrow an F80 M3 or 82 M4, which color should I get? Or even better, which color best showcases the two cars in all their glory? Both Florian and Domagoj have a soft spot for a classic M3/M4 in white, and both of them said the Austin Yellow is a fantastic and polarizing color that will age well.
But according to them, the color that shows best the design, the shapes and all the fine details is Silverstone Metallic.
And this brings us back to the topic at hand: an F82 M4 Coupe spotted in Silverstone Metallic.
Let’s have a look at the photo gallery while you share with us in the comments section below which color do you like best on the two M brothers.
