Throughout the years, Tesla has often been critiqued for their inferior build quality – particularly in regards to exterior paint issues and blemishes.
Iconic automotive engineer Sandy Munro once declared that if he were in charge, the first order of business would be to fire whoever was responsible for the paint shop and replace it during a temporary shutdown.
Gradually, progress has been made as more and more owners, bloggers, vloggers, and detailing experts have shared their thoughts on the internet.
After Elon Musk proclaimed in 2018 that the Gigafactory in Berlin, Germany would boast “the world’s most advanced paint shop,” we now finally get to see the Quicksilver shine of a Model Y close-up. The remarkable images were captured by Twitter user @thirionremi at a service center near Frankfurt.

The electric crossover boasts an intriguing appearance – its various silver hues are altered in different lighting and can make it seem almost chrome-like at times. It’s quite a cool effect.
The stunningly shiny thing in tandem with the newly revealed Midnight Cherry Red hue, makes this an impressive display of the Gigafactory’s painting plant situated in Berlin. This exquisite artwork is only available for Model Y cars here.
While these two colors are more costly than the other paint options – ranging from free for white to 1,600 Euros ($1,700) for Deep Blue Metallic – you will need to shell out 3,000 Euros (around $3,200) for Quicksilver and 3,200 Euros ($3,400) if you opt for Midnight Cherry Red. Clearly a larger investment but certainly worth it if you’re looking to make your car stand out from the crowd.
The Tesla Model Y Long Range and Performance models, manufactured in Berlin, offer a unique opportunity to purchase this special product.
We have seen the Tesla Model Y in Quicksilver before. Back in November 2022, a model featuring this color and white interior was discovered at Giga Berlin’s parking lot – indicating that production of vehicles with this paint has been ongoing for quite some time now.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on this new color – is it worth the cost? Share your comments below.
