Nutria Metallic Paint

Was browsing the Craigslist and found a color I've never seen before. To my surprise, even though it looks like a chocolate milkshake, I like it! For some reason it going with the W124 sedan look very well. The interior is a perfect match to the exterior color. Paint Code: 475. It's a beautiful 1994 75k mile example.

Dealer United States (USA) (705)
Interior leather mushroom (265)
Paint
475 nutria metallic (с 01.01.1992)
65 Unknown code


I never knew Mercedes offered this color for W124.

I've never seen that before. Seems odd to name a car color after a water rat

Water rat or not, it's really cool. I wonder how it would look on a wagon.

I agree, that just made it into my top four favorite 124 colors:

Black Pearl (like my car)
Bornite
Malachite
Nutria

that is a cool color, and is an awesome combo with the mushroom leather. I have never seen a w124 in that, but there is a w126 in town, I think a 420SEL that is in that color. Doesnt look as sharp, probably because it is all rusty too. right up there with Malachite as my favorite benz colors

As most of you guys do (I'm sure), I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for 124s. It seems that Benz offered some really nice colors, but the vast majority of the cars I see are one of 3 or 4 colors. The early cars seem to be white, smoke silver, navy blue, or charcoal. Didn't buyers think the other colors were nice back then? If they bought them, where did they go? I don't see them on the roads. I don't see them in the salvage yards. Dark green, light green, aqua, burgundy, where are they? I'd like to see a chart showing the distribution of colors over the years. It seems that about half of the recent production Benzs I see are silver. Maybe it's a regional thing.

Always looking around for something different. I would love to get my hands on a Cabernet TE with wither the grey or darker red moulding. But instead I just have boring old smoke silver. Bornit with a violetgrey moulding would be nice too. I dont know where all there have gone. Lots of great colors on the w126's in town. Trying to get my hands on a teal blue metallic 300SEL with tan tex that is sitting down the street

Very nice and very rare color. I saw it once on a wagon with a matching chocolate brown leather interior. Unfortunately that car "disappeared", otherwise I should have bought it. In fact, almost all nice low mileage wagons are gone....

Boy, I would have loved to see that combination on a Wagon.

Was the Nutria Metallic paint one of the paint options on the "special edition" versions of the later W124s?
