LVD Charcoal 1994-2000 was mainly seen on late coupes but you are right, rare to see on 400's

No way that I know of...

Are you considering buying something and the seller has an inflated price because it's "rare" ??

It might be a little-seen colour, but I'm not sure how much it adds to the value of a car.

FWIW, I think charcoal does make it look more "business like" and a more serious car, but a lot of people don't like the slick businessman image.

Charcoal was a standard colour on the later versions of the 214SEi. It was also used in publicity material for the later (R3 dash) Tourers.
