"Lamborghini Orange" isn't an actual color, you know. The two most popular ones Lambo uses are Orange Atlas Pearl and Orange Argos Pearl.

Other BMW oranges include Valencia Orange, Inca Orange, and Sakhir Orange.

Porsche has a nice one called Pumpkin Orange, and Audi has my favorite shade of orange of all called Solar Orange.

Corvette has one that's almost red called Inferno Orange.

Ferrari has a very light red that's practically orange called Dino Red.

Post pictures of the end result!

I have a feeling that most of those oranges will all look the same when viewed down low, behind a set of rims. so no need to really stress between one or the other. VO is very metallic/pearlescent so that might look different enough to be noticeable. plus it's a BMW color

Easier to go to car company websites and see what color options they have. Those will all tell you the colors they use.

The bigger problem is judging color of a photograph that you have no idea is color corrected for accuracy on an uncalibrated computer display. Something like orange shifts easily with all of those variables. You really need to see color chips in person if you are trying to decide between various tones of the same color.

True, but it narrows the choices down and gives me a starting point.

your best bet is to go to the paint shop, so they can show you the colors in person
And there are thousands of orange colors out there
