what colour is 199?

Hi guys,

I've been researching on a mercedes and the colour code says 199. It is noted as pearl black or blue-black. What colour IS that exactly? I thought black was 040?

Yes, 199 is black pearl. 040 is black.

199 looks like charcoal

This is 199 Blue Black [or Black Pearl]. The bottom panels were not 199 at the time of this picture.

040 is High Gloss Black
