This is a great time to be a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast!
A few real life pictures of the 2011 SL63 AMG in designo Magno Night Black! This vehicle also has the new designo stone trim in Star Galaxy. I’ve learned quite a bit about the new Magno Matte finishes lately and they are a really interesting alternative to the standard gloss. It is more of a satin finish than a true matte – there is some luster there. Other than handwashing and keeping away from abrasive materials it doesn’t require any additional upkeep. For those of you who have had black, white and silver and want something new, Magno Matte is exciting!
I finally received a vehicle in Magnetite Black! This new color is stunning in person. I tried to take a few pictures that would show the huge amount of metallic sparkle in this color. When the sun is not shining directly on it, it looks similar to Steel Grey but a little bit darker. You could certainly mistake it for Black at night. Once the sun is shining it most closely resembles designo Graphite but isn’t quite the same shade. It is so hard to describe a color like this!
Currently only available on the S, CL and SL it is a standard metallic paint – no upcharge! This particular SL is Magnetite Black with the Natural Beige interior and is absolutely gorgeous! It is by far the most striking SL we have on the lot.
