Larger opening area than the factory sunroof, I used to have a W123 that had a nearly full size of the roof webasto folding fabric top, it was like a convertible.

I'm sorry guys but...NICE does not do justice to this fabulous machine!!! I mean, whoever has a car that colour with a parchment interior must be a superior being!

I think all of the metallic colours look really good on the w116's, bring out the bodylines without being over the top or vulgar.


When I had my 6.9 the green really grew on me, back in the day when metallic paints were fairly new these cars must have really stood out on the road.

As much as MB had some very conservative colours, they had some special 70's colours Cayenne Orange, Citrus Green, Magnetite Blue, Signal Red. Thing is, I dont know why you dont see alot of black ones, I wonder if it was to do with black funeral cars....
