There are several colors to choose from when you're building a Tesla Model X, but with our long term test car we went with Red Multi-Coat and boy, does it look good.

    As a heads up to potential Tesla buyers, I want to give a warning about the paint. While it looks stunning at delivery, Tesla uses ludicrously (get it? haha) soft paint that basically starts to fleck off and scratch almost immediately. Many companies exist that apply a ceramic coating over the paint to protect it and do a phenomenal job, but it's worth pointing out that once you buy a Tesla you almost immediately have to spend about $1k to ensure the paint doesn't destroy itself in 3 years. If you're used to German luxury cars and their fantastic quality paint this is going to be a change.
