Anyone have any idea what color this is?

I'am looking to paint my E34 and came across the E92 M3 in a color I don't recognize, I hope it isn't a render.

Sorry for the terrible quality picture, only one I could find of it.





Looks like it's a picture somebody touched up in Photoshop judging by how pale the taillights are....maybe Atlantis blue?

That's the closest match that I can think of.

I'am really hoping it is, it will SEAL THE DEAL for me leaning towards Atlantis Blue (green actually).

Would be for this car.

Looks like tanzanite blue. Almost positive but i may have spelled it wrong.

IMO the E34 would look better in a darker blue like Tanzanite over a light blue green like Atlantis. Both are great colors though.

Funny you say that, Tanzanite was also on my list. As well as Sepia & Velvet Blue.

Tanzanite seems to be a bit bluer than the one posted though? So hard to tell.

Its the lighting that makes it look a little different as well as the editing software they used to make that picture. Tanzanite would look so good plus since your car is already dark the area's that don't get painted won't stick out like a sore thumb.

Looks too metallic to be paint, it could be a wrap. Or just over processed photo....
