Custom paint color

Does anyone know if it is possible to custom order a new E-Class Cabrio in a custom color? Would it matter if I took delivery at the factory? I really don't like the available colors or even the Designo colors. I put the question to Mercedes US headquarters, but have never got an answer.

If MBUSA didn't give you an answer try calling somewhere that deals with these types of inquiries regularly, such as MB of Beverly Hills or one of the huge SoCal dealers. I know that most of the high end makers do allow for personalization of paint and some only offer colors available across their entire model range. Others like Aston Martin, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce will custom blend any color to your liking. It is generally not an advertised option and it is much more costly than choosing "available" paint. You have to consider that it will not be painted on the assembly line which adds time, effort and expense. Let us know if and when you get a solid answer.
