A new and interesting color that Mercedes-Benz introduced for the 2011 model year, as a special order color only, is Cuprite Brown. While Cuprite Brown is a ‘special order’ color, a certain amount of cars are built and painted this color for regular dealer inventory. I just performed a nationwide dealer search through the MB ‘intra-net’ and found less than 20 Cuprite Brown E350 4matic cars available at dealers in the entire United States.
What’s Cuprite? Cuprite is a non-magnetic, redish brown, igneous rock often found among granite. So… the color Mercedes-Benz came up with is a very dark redish brown metallic. In some light it looks black, in very bright sun it looks like a dark, dark brown / burgandy color… see the close up photo of the front end of this in stock car:
When you stare into a Cuprite Brown E class you can seemingly see for miles, it’s a dark, rich color and looks great with the Almond interior with black accents.
Our subject car arrived here at Feldmann Imports a few days ago, it’s a 2011 model with all sorts of options. I took a photo of the right side of its window sticker for your reference. This is Feldmann Imports’ Stock# M9864, MSRP is $61,425. We can ship to you anywhere in the country if this is the right car for you.
