This was in a car yard close to the hotel we stayed at in Chur, Switzerland (April 2010). Cool looking car in matt finish paint.
Pity it had a bird crap on the rear panel.

you will probably find that it is not paint but matt finished vinyl wrap, it seems to be a popular thing to do at the moment.

the other wrap that is being done a lot with the expensive luxo sports items is the '3M Di-Noc' wrap.. fake carbon fiber but looks fairly realistic but has a nice texture to it.

Mercedes have been doing the wrap thing for years for taxis in Germany.

Noticed quite a number of matt black painted cars in northern Italy last month. These were newish cars with big engines from the various euro manufacturers - not just Mercedes.
Probably a fad thing that will date the vehicle.
