Damn, this is a tough crowd.

But how do you feel pulling up t a 7/11 to get some crappy ethanol and and some huge dude in a Navy uniform looks at your ass and thinks "damn that's a pretty car".

I had a 72 380 SEL 4.5 in metallic blue, pure class. The car you linked is truly a "super car" and should be a super car color, red maybe green if it was British. You could accent it with some black wheels or even something psycho like some AC Cobra esque stripes to manly it up.

Get YOUR color and red line it.

Not feminine but the lighting sure makes it look like silver here.

I have a client with the same car in black--she looks great in it. But...she looks great anyway!!

I also thought it looked silver in the pics, then enlarged them. I like the color, and love the car. Given a choice, i'd do red or black. But if i could write the check i'd not hesitate on the blue.

Well - the seller is calling it silver. It looks silver. I'd say it is silver.

MB racing cars have always been silver for the past 80 years!

Sorry I didn't mean to argue about the color. I looked today in natural light (enlarged) and I can barely see the blue tint. Does anyone know what name MB has for that? I can't remember ever seeing it before.

I believe the color is diamond silver and depending on the light, it does have a light blue-ish hue. But mainly, I would just consider it a silver car.

teak / silver mer

that's actually not a bad colour at all, are you thinking of buying it for the summer and then selling your Mercedes, if so be aware it can hit your resale price, black and silver are always the safest bet. Of course if you want something that's a bit different then why not.
