I guess no one has a clue. Note that Barolo Red and Verde Brook are listed as "Delayed." I would guess Alpine Rain is a light metallic green, but I guess we'll see shortly.

Greg, that listed as color code 349 in one of your earlier tables. When comparing that to other MB paint codes it seems to be more in the blues. We'll see shortly :)

Not for sure but this should be the Barolo Red. And as posted in an earlier thread this is Alpine Rain. Still waiting on the Verde Brook to appear.

Alu-Beam paint

Mercedes is working on a super metallic (like used on their show vehicles) for future production:

"With its fleet of silver diesel cars in Geneva, Mercedes-Benz is showing the direction that developments will be headed in the future. This claim to spearheading developments is highlighted by the uniform paint job for the show cars, which also points the way to the future. The paint covers the body panels like a metallic skin, emphasizes the design lines more strongly than any previous paint job and makes them more lively by means of targeted light reflections. The paint’s remarkable sparkle and brilliance is the result of a newly developed process that was used for the first time by Mercedes-Benz. While the pigments in a conventional metallic paint measure between 100 and 300 nanometres in size, those in the new ALU-BEAM paint are even much smaller (30 to 50 nanometres). In addition, the pigments are specially worked so that they are more uniformly spread within the paint’s surface. As a result, light is reflected with even greater brilliance and the paint’s sheen is substantially enhanced."
