Obtaining Signature Red paint, is it possible?

I am just about set to order a P85+ but am hung up bad on the color. The color I REALLY want is the Signature red, but is isn't available. Is there an aftermarket alternative or even a paint code that I could get and, as much as I'd hate to do it, re-paint my brand new car?

Any advice greatly appreciated. I REALLY want this color.

The point of Signature Red is that it is only available on the Signature model and to those who paid a lot of money to get a Signature vehicle. Making the color available on a non-signature or as an after market item completely devalues the color and would hock off a lot of Signature owners. Best of luck.

Speaking of wraps, I went scouting for Sig Red for sale used on a few of the obvious sites and no hits. But...

2013 Tesla Model S Performance for Sale in Riverside, CA
2013 Tesla Model S Performance For Sale
$69,999

Seemingly good price, except for the fact that it's not a Perf ... nor even an 85 kWh (looks to be a 40 -- C)... and doesn't have Twin Chargers or SC (A).

Be careful out there.

I don't have a paint code, but I think it's very much like "Garnet Red". I used to own a Toyota pickup truck in that color, and I loved it. I've seen some Cadillacs in the same shade of red too.

Ya know, now that I think of it, Lamborghini had a 4 stage red that looks to be real close. Im wondering if someone with a Sg Red has the paint code?
