The S550 in Andorite Grey

    Andorite Grey is a new color for the 2007 S Class exclusively. These images were shot at Glauser MB in Denver, CO. It was received yesterday and my sales rep said he would shoot some pictures for me so I could see what the color really looks like. That is the kind of service you get from this dealership...I can not say enough about their approach to selling MB's automobiles.

    I think when he gets some sun and shoots some more you will see the blue/green hue effect more.

    I like. That specific model I do not like because of the rims. Of course when you are buying a car of this magnitude and price range you can afford to change the rims or order it with a sport package.

    The S class is truly a beautiful car and Jack when you get it you won't regret it. I think that car will be the love of your life, if not second to that.

    Oh I drive past the MB dealership everyday to work and I love looking at that car. It is simply amazing from every angle. I hate to see what will happen when I see an S65 AMG.

    When doing a build of this car and selecting Andorite Grey in mbusa.com the image kinda shows that. I think that's a superb choice for the exterior color.

    Is this an all new color from Mercedes-Benz? I know that they have a very long list of colors that they usually rotate every so often, but even though they sometimes revive them with different names (marketing), the color codes remain the same; but I can't recall seeing this Metallic Grey variation before.
    It looks great! It has a blue undertone right? Really cool. :usa7uh:

    They have 11 colors total for the S Class. This color is advertised as exclusive to the S and is new for 2007. I am sure a color similar to this has been used before, but the mix is probably different. Yes it is described by MB as a light grey with blue/green hues. I agree it looks great...:)

    New Pictures in the Colorado Sunshine

    These were shot today by Greg at Glauser in Denver, CO. They show off the Andorite Grey much better than the earlier ones shot in the rain. Amazing how the sun angle reflect the different hues on the car. I am sold on the color...:icondrool :eusa_danc :usa7uh:

    I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out...the three pointed star is prominent in the grille isn't it...:)

    Wow awesome pictures Jack. Those rims are among my favorites, and really fill out the wheel wells out nicely on the W221.

    Re: New Pictures in the Colorado Sunshine

    I guess it's the dealer's service truck. Their name is all over it
    I've seen many ML's being used as an MB Service truck, but never a Sprinter.


    Have you driven an S550 yet??

    NevadaJack Well-Known Member

    Thanks...The rims are 19" but they are not my favorite. I am going with the standard 9 Spoke Alloy in 18"...they may look a little small for the wheel wells but I can always upgrade later on.

    Re: New Pictures in the Colorado Sunshine

    I also have never seen a Sprinter used for service...always ML's.

    I drove the Demo here in LV for a very short spin because at the time I had no idea I was going to buy one. Then it started working on me...:) Drove very quiet and smooth...the power is quite a difference from the S430 275HP to 382HP....! Did not really get a chance to check much out. I may at my next car wash stop see if it is available and see if I can't bum a ride...

    Great pictures, NevadaJack!:usa7uh:
    The car looks great in Andorite Grey, certainly one of the better colors for the car!
    By the way, did you notice the silver S-class with AMG package in the 13th picture? Anymore picture of that, it looks great from the back. ;)
    I'm also glad that you eventually could get the options you wanted after all.

    The 18" 9 spoke looks great as well.
    But if you're going to get an upgrade on the wheels, you might as well go for Mercedes rims.
    Not that my taste really matters but I've never been such a fan of aftermarket wheels on a classy car like the S-class.
    But anyway, I've got a few pictures of the S-class with original Mercedes 19" rims that if when comes you may consider.

    You can see more shots of that AMG silver one at this URL as well as others they have or will have in stock.

    I do like the 19" rims on the LE which you can purchase but I am going witht he stock 18" 9 Spoke and will look into upgrading later on. I think the two last pictures of yours are the ones I am talking about...split spoke.
