2008 C300. First person that guesses why it's a unicorn, really knows Mercedes.

It's a unicorn because it has a manual transmission.


Wife: 15' Audi A4 quattro 6 speed manual
Me: 18' Elantra Sport 6 speed manual

What's the vin? That's the only real way I can tell what options a car has. The C class doesn't really have that many options. Real unicorn are loaded ones not color based. I don't think you have the bixenons, can't tell if you have the pano or the multimedia package or real leather. Pretty limited on a C class, no keyless go, no power trunk closer, distronics, active curve illumination etc...

I'm truly jealous. Not a huge Benz fan, but I love me a good manual gearbox. That, and the color combo is amazing to boot.

Where's the details/pics?

Here's the brochure. I guess it's the C300 Sport RWD model. The 6 speed gets 1 mpg better highway mileage vs the 7 speed automatic.

It has the AMG sport package and the pano roof. 40,000 miles. Pics after I get it home in a week or two.

Nice! Always thought the C300 Sport was a great car with the 6MT. Excellent daily driver -- plenty of comfort while keeping some fun accessible. Congrats!
