Is this designo ocean blue??

The car I'm interested in is an R129 SL manufactured 1999

Colour is 026 designo ocean blue. I am thinking this S class (a 2000) which is advertised as having designo paint is probably it. Apologies for the quality of picture but hopefully you can get the idea!

Anyone know?

The SL is a fair bit away to travel and i'd like to be sure of the colour

Many Thanks

That looks more like Designo South China Sea Ultramarine Metallic, but I could be wrong.

I used to own Designo Cognac Mercedes and it proved hard to sell even I loved the 2-tone interior.
Don't judge the color based on a picture. It is pretty misleading. One time I was considering buying one of the red Mercedes since it looked beautiful on the pictures and the color would stand up in the line of Mercedeses at our local grocery story.
But than spotted one red MB in my city and real look was pretty disappointing.

I've not seen a picture of the car that's why i'm trying to find out what it looks like if I can.

I can't believe how little I've come up with on the 'net googling it etc!

Hopefully someone here may have the colour themselves.......

I am not sure which color blue that Merc is, but I do like the color a lot. Is that a rare color or is it that blue don't seem to like it.
