Red 576

Hello guys!


Anyone have pics of their Benz in red 576? It's so hard to find photos online, there's only a few when you search on Google, and one of them is actually signal red.

I'd like to get my car repainted and apparently my colour is red 576. (even if my grandfather, who bought the car new back then, says it looked more like dark red 542).

My car was repainted in the 80s, apparently in not exactly the right colour. So I'm trying to see what it would look like, especially when "new"


Thanks!

Man. Those colors look so similar, I had to go check the data card on my 1985 280sl, which turns out to be singal red. I put some hubcaps on it that are a little darker though. I bet they are the 576, but I have no way of confirming. And the pictures I have on my phone stink, at least with respect to hedging the color of my hubcaps.

I think I like the color better than signal red.
