Just came across this today. No affiliation etc.

Not a lot of details but this is a rare color is it not?

Rare 1993 Mercedes from joint development with Porsche.
Reported as one of only 286 built!
If you know what it is, then you know what this really is!
Original owner - downsizing to make room for other vehicles.
Still runs well and extremely fast - great cruising vehicle.

Interesting. It still works for me. I must have it cached.

I wish you could upload pictures on here instead of having to host them...

Probably is. What were the details on it? It said Los Altos which is about 20 minutes south of S.F.

Not sure what you're talking about! It's easy to host pictures here! There's well over 1GB of files already uploaded!!

Just use the area below the reply / icon area to do it. You can see it -- it has a button to specify the file on your hard drive, then a button that says "Add the file"

See "uploaded" file below.

Maybe you're not looking hard enough?

Cheers,
Gerry

Looks like Bornite / Blackberry, I think. Gorgeous color. Wonder what it sold for...

Yes, the color is clearly Bornit which is a pretty rare one for a US-spec car. Among the rarest of the colors.

Cheers,

Hmm, very similar to BMW's Daytona Violet which was a 2nd gen M5 color.

Depending on the light....it can be stunning, but not sure if I could live w/ it for too long.

It's been documented via a professionally commissioned, double-blind owner study that European owners of Bornit / Bornite colored E500Es have nearly double the frequency and length of sexual encounters with their wives/girlfriends/significant others than owners of ordinary DB199 cars.

I was even more shocked to see that a couple colors even had higher rates than Bornite !! Believe it or not. I was really surprised when I read this study. :blink:
