    Does anyone have pictures of the red multi-coat production Model X? I've looked everywhere and nobody seems to have that color. If you have pictures of one please post.

    I think it is the same color as the Red Multi Coat on the Model S. There should be plenty of places to see the color. I would post our three year old red multi coat S but a newer car would be a better place to compare colors.

    My wife really likes the red S so we doubled down went sig red with the X.

    I have not not seen a multi coat red X either. It was/is a Sig option so there may be one out there in that color.

    Yea I understand that the red multi-coat is the same as the Model S but I would really like to see how it looks like on the Model X. I've seen the CGI's but a nice photo of a red multi-coat Model X would be so much more pleasing.

    Nothing yet. I'm trying to keep the color threads updated. As soon as I see one posted online, I'll drop it there:

    I saw one... Let me see if I can find it. I've had two MC red S's so I'm biast, but I thought it looked really good on the X. But I would only go that route if you don't mind a ton of tesla time everywhere you go. It will definitely get attention.

    Edit: I believe this is MC red

    Is there any reason why nobody has the red multi-coat Model X yet? I've seen every other color variant, did they run out of red paint?

    Probably because all of the X's so far had the option for sig red.

    hmmm that car seems a little dark, maybe a sig red? I think it will look brighter. Or it could be the lighting.

    I thought Tesla has began to deliver production models now?

    Right, but the sig Model X was offered with the red multi-coat and the other colors as well, I've seen the other colors. It's strange how there are no pictures of the red multi-coat.

    Perhaps it's (simple) psychology. Why do many people buy class rings? It's not because they're so beautiful; but rather, it signifies you belong to a special club. In the case of the X (and S), Sig. Red signifies your X is in an elite category (pun fully intended)/higher status. MC Red is available even to plebes like me. So if you're inclined to buy red anyway, I imagine almost all of the Sig. reservation holders will get Sig. Red because it's exclusive.

    At the San Diego service center they had several multi-coat reds and 1 Signature red.

    Send me your e-mail and I;ll send you a photo.

    Thought the X looked fantastic in Red. White was pretty spectacular too.

    Andrew's photos above are MC Red. I'd appreciate any others being put in the MC red thread I linked to above. It'll be really helpful for people who have questions about colors to see them in different lights/angles, etc.

    Also, agree 100% with Bobby. If I had a Signature reservation, I'd be tempted to get Sig Red over any of the colors, and especially so if I were predisposed to red already. I mean.. Sig Red!

    Ah yea that would make sense as to why there are so few MC red photos.

    I think I finally found an MC red X that doesn't look a sig red in a bright room :)
    I found it while browsing random Model X sightings and the user Jeddi posted this picture.

    I also just found a good comparison photo of the Model X sig red to the MC red. Found it on "Flock of Model X's at San Diego prep center" thread original poster was stephenpace.

    You can see the sig red X and then behind it there is another MC red X.

    I believe that after they put the paint on they bake it to dry and once it's dry they continue assembly. However it looks like that X is still in the "assembly phase" ;)

    Sig red better by far IMO than mc red.....I do like mc red a lot on the S though. The very bright lighting in the factory might make it look weird too in that pic.
