Per the recently released 2013 M5 US Order Guide, the BMW M5 F10 will add a new color as of July production, and it’s most eye catching color yet – Sakhir Orange Metallic.

We’ve seen and posted photos of every standard and recommended Individual M5 color, but since there are no photos yet of a Sakhir Orange M5, we’ve rendered up these few previews to help those who are contemplating the color for order.
