A Giga Berlin-made Tesla Model Y, finished in the new Quicksilver color, is shown for the first time at Auto Zürich in Switzerland. Appearing alongside a Midnight Silver Metallic Model 3, visitors were able to feel the difference and see the layering of the new color.
Last month, Tesla unveiled two new colors for the Giga Berlin-made Model Y. These were luxurious Quicksilver and Midnight Cherry Red. Midnight Cherry Red has a striking depth that changes with the light to accentuate Model Y’s graceful curves. The dynamic Quicksilver color with liquid metal effect gives the car an elegant look.
Up to this day, the public has only seen photos of the new colors, but that changed on Thursday. Tesla visited Auto Zürich in Switzerland, where it brought its Quicksilver Model Y. The exhibition runs from November 10 to 13 in the Messe Zürich showroom. YouTube channel Vision E Drive visited the show and got a first look at the newly painted car. It is worth noting that the lighting in the hall was not ideal, and the video quality was poor. However, even under these conditions, the Quicksilver color looked very nice. Standing next to the Midnight Silver Metallic Model 3 emphasized the tenderness and freshness of Quicksilver Model Y.
The Quicksilver color is made possible by the Giga Berlin paint shop, which has a unique layout and was specifically designed and built to implement Tesla's new colors. During the painting process, up to 13 layers of paint are applied to the car, which gives the surface a unique depth and excellent appearance. Highly pigmented metallic paints provide a special sheen effect that enhances the design of Model Y, allowing colors to change depending on the vehicle's angle and lighting.
