Orange Cars: I love orange. Orange is my favorite color. I love the bright orange hue that’s applied to automotive sheet metal. However, it’s difficult to find orange on other vehicles than sports cars. Most mundane commuters, such as sedans and crossovers, will settle for a deep metallic orange-ish brown, leaving out bright highlighter-spec or creamsicle Oranges.
It’s a shame considering how beautiful our short-term Kia Stinger GTS in Federation Orange looks. This vibrant color was first offered in the GTS’s 800-unit production run. It is now available on regular Stingers with loaded-out GT2 trim. I was struck by the sleek, four-door liftback in orange. It reminded me of Sunny D’s obsession with orange. While we are used to seeing orange on Lambos or Porsche 911s, what about the limited-edition oranges that characterized the whole special event?
These are the top limited-edition orange cars that you may have missed.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th anniversary Edition
It’s hard to believe that we have enjoyed three decades of Mazda’s quirky little roadster. The big three-oh was last year, and Japanese automaker Mazda created a bucket of Racing Orange paint to celebrate. Mazda claims that it is a metallic, rich color, meant to represent anticipation and sunrise, and evokes the dawning of an exciting new day.
These were only available in a total of 3,000 worldwide. Only 643 were offered to the United States.
2013 BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition
BMW is the most afraid of color, out of all the automakers listed on this page. The E92 M3 Limerock Park Edition (LRPE), which features Fire Orange paint, is a great alternative to the traditional color wheel options like EstorilBlue and Imola Red.
The M3 LRPE is a consolation prize for Europe’s only E92 M3 GTS (also available in Fire Orange), and adds additional equipment to a regular M3 with Competition package. Each LRPE came with the paint, Alcantara steering wheels, titanium exhaust, carbon fibre exterior trim and the dash plaque indicating that it was a special edition.
It’s a beautiful car, but it is hard to get one out of the hands Bimmer fans. Only 200 were made in 2013.
Orange Cars 2007 Volkswagen Golf GTI Fahrenheit Edition
The Fahrenheit Edition Mk5 GTI was unveiled at the Playboy Mansion in 2006. It is one of the most striking-looking versions of the popular hatch thanks to its Magma Orange exterior paint and interior trim. Like most cars on this list the most special features are aesthetic, but a European-tuned suspension was included.
It is difficult to find a pure Fahrenheit theses days. However, they did make 1,200 for the U.S.
