Tanzanite Blue metallic

Does anyone have E350/550 in Tanzanite Blue metallic and take a picture during day light? I was at a dealer here in Toronto but they didn't have E350/550 in the Blue. The web pictures really don't tell me much and I doubt it is similar to real life look, so I'm wondering if anyone has a picture of the E class in Tanzanite Blue metallic. The blue is my first choice colour, though for me Stannite Grey metallic doesn't look back either.

Thanks!

I love blue color too, and I don't see any tanzanite blue e coupe but I thought that it is too dark for me when i looked at the catalogue.

I have seen previous model E class in dark blue and looked great. The problem with the MB website is that the colours there don't match the colors in sunlight...on the read. Anyways, I guess I will have to check out other dealerships...

Actually LOTUS BLUE is a wonderfull color but it is not applied on E-Coupe but you can see it on B series in showrooms. I really love it.

You can technically order any color for your car, but like all things bespoke, it will cost you. I know of a few cars over the years that have benefited from custom factory paint, even Chrysler did one for a friend of mine. Some makers will do literally any color while others will only let you select a colors they offer on any model even if it's not listed as available on yours. Pair this with a Designo interior and you're gold like Ft. Knox. Seems well worth it if getting a unique vehicle is your goal.

According to MB Canadian website there is no extra charge for the Tanzanite Blue metallic, I guess it won't hurt to confirm with the dealer but I'm already set on this colour so it's a done deal for me.

I've got a custom painted E350 in Mauritian Blue with porcelain designo leather on order and hopefully arriving in the next few weeks. I'll post a picture soon as I get it.

I was going to go for a black one but changed my mind and went for the blue instead. The white leather looks really good ( well to me anyway ) when combined with the blue.

Mauritian Blue ? Is that American colour ?

Cool post some pictures! I wasn't able to find Tanzanite Blue Metallic E class but I did find B-Class car though it was dirty due to winter and salt. However I found some Tanzanite Blue C63 pictures here:

Tanzanite Blue C63 - It's here! - MBWorld.org Forums

The colour looks very nice, I'm pleased with it...of course in the winter it will look a bit more dirty than say silver or while...but there are just too many Black/Silver/white cars out there and I want something different.

My ML320 was Tanzanite Blue Metallic. Here are some pictures if it helps any. I loved this color and wouldn't hesitate to choose it again. It won't look as blue or have as much depth as the C63 you posted due purely to the fact that mine is a little older and had developed a fair amount of swirl marks I hadn't buffed out at the time.
