Even though many customers might go for the classic Alpine White or Black Sapphire, others may choose the more flashy colors, like the launch color Austin Yellow and this Sakhir Orange which was unveiled on the M6 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.
At a recent auto show 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, we touched on the topic of best color choice for the new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe. 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 II.
The BMW M4 shown here also comes with the carbon fiber roof, the black wheels and to match the exterior, the leather comes in Sakhir Orange as well.
