    After four years in development, a new clear coat which is much more scratch-resistant than conventional paint owing to advanced nanotechnology finds use at Mercedes-Benz. The E-Class, S-Class, CL-Class, SL-Class, and SLK-Class models are the first cars in the world to benefit from this innovative paint, while other Mercedes-Benz model series will also feature the more scratch-resistant nanocoating from the spring of 2004.
Mercedes-Benz with a world premiere: the new nano paint finish offers three times higher scratch resistance and better shine. The models of the E-Class, model series 211 (in the picture here the Saloon), S-Class, model series 220, CL-Class, model series 215, SL-Class, model series 230 and SLK-Class,  model series 170, are the first cars in the world to feature this innovative paint system. Other Mercedes-Benz model series will go on to receive the more scratch-resistant nano paint finish from spring 2004.
