Although it isn't much of a focus for most publications, we're pretty keen on unique color combinations.

Of course that's only if they look good, that is.

The reason we're so big on unique color schemes is because they can really make or break an all-new product. Think: how much better does a Porsche Panamera look in Yachtling Blue or a Mocha Brown over, say, white? It makes a big difference for that particular model because the darker hues hide the vehicle's ungainly lines.

Now at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show we stumbled upon one particularly interesting example from Mercedes-Benz. Sporting a golden, champagne-like exterior color, this E550 Cabriolet featured a dark blue leather interior with contrasting tan piping.

While the E-Class Cabriolet is not new to the market, this new combination put together gives it a much more exclusive look that's sophisticated. It's a very high brow selection and reminds me of a Bentley for some reason.

That said, am I alone here?

Is this Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet HOT or a HOT MESS?
