    Pearl white 190SL? Anyone know this car? Photoshop or real?

    Saw this inspiring photo of a 190SL in pearl white. Has anyone ever seen a 190SL in this modern pearl white finish? Any more pics?

    With filters and photoshop you can create anything.....but this definitely looks like a white pearl to me. Just wondering if this car actually exists and if there are other photos. Might be a fun color to paint an SL with.

    I did a search here but could not find Stu or his pearl white SL. Any idea what that thread may be under?

    I just learned pearl paint for cars was invented in the 1950s.....and they used scales from fish to make the paint! So technically a pearl white 190SL was feasible back with these cars were produced. Would LOVE to see more pics of this pearl 190SL

    Here's a Pearl White 250SE I saw yesterday. I didn't particularly like the color. Click image for larger version.
