    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.
