I simply can't decide. What do you guys think? (please don't say elite because it's more exclusive/more expensive)

Money no object though - just want the perfect car...

FYI, the car will feature the following visible features:

- Lightweight forged wheels "Stealth"
- "Silver" CCB Calipers
- Carbon fibre front/side/rear splitter
- Carbon fiber engine bay
- Stealth pack
- Full leather "Black"
- Stitching "Light Grey"

I don't want a grey one - I would like opinions regarding two colors; "Silver" & "Supernova Silver"

Thank you

You need to see Supernova because the fleck is very prominent but that causes the reflection

standard silver


supernova silver


As stated the only difference is the pearl effect and Xirallic® consists of a new substrate which produces a lighter body color, greater color intensity and a more powerful lustre than most traditional effect pigments. So in sunlight will get a colour explosion, but don't really get the effect of VO.

It’s all down to personal preference and seeing the car in the flesh.

A lot of people were raving over the Volcano Red, but it did nothing for me, just like stealth wheels.

Yet to many eyes, this is just perfect.

The point being, whatever anyone else says, its all down to you sunshine.

Try and see the cars in person (hard I’ll agree, given the limited stock delivered to date) but I am sure your dealer will arrange at trip to MPC, if you are having dilemmas.

Oh and ignore Depthofshine, your car will never look as good as his photos, unless he has done his magic on it (and well worth it)

Yeah sorry for the hijack. I just love that car in the vid.
Go with your gut and you can't lose- they are both great colours. The only way to end up with the wrong choice is to ask other peoples' opinions.

No doubt if it was me.....supernova. Like the proper bright Mercedes silver.

I tend to avoid the 3 layer pearl paint jobs. They look amazing however, you must be prepared to custom wrap the entire car in protective film because it is difficult to repair any paint chips properly. You will never get a perfect match.

I would say that is not Supernova which is richer, deeper and slightly darker.

^That one is "Titanium Grey" for sure.

Supernova is suppost to be more "bright" under light compared to standard silver - as far as I understand... hmmm...
