Elon Musk promised state-of-the-art car painting facility at the new Gigafactory in Berlin that will be able to churn out Teslas in different colors than the tired five hues the company has been offering for a while. A Deep Crimson Model Y has been spotted, and the Mercury Silver Metallic color may already be in validation testing, too.

New drone footage over the Gigafactory in Berlin has revealed that the new Tesla car colors that Elon Musk promised not long ago are in advanced testing phases, indicating a launch may be imminent. Tobias Lindh’s bird's eye view over Giga Berlin caught a Model Y in the paint shop's yard that had its rear section covered in what should be Elon Musk's favorite new color - the Deep Crimson Multicoat. The rest of the vehicle seems to be in various stage of base layer testing and this is the second mention of a new Tesla car color being tested there.

Earlier in the week it became clear that what Elon Musk called the most advanced car paint shop in the world has received the necessary upgrades to produce at least two test vehicles in the new Mercury Silver Metallic and Deep Crimson Multicoat hues. The third of the new Tesla car colors that were unearthed via some MyTesla mobile app code digging - the flashy Abyss Blue Multicoat - is yet to be heard about or spotted in the Giga Berlin backyard. 

While the Abyss Blue Multicoat may be arriving at a later date, the first Mercury Silver Metallic and Deep Crimson Multicoat vehicles are reportedly arriving in the US for validation tests. Meanwhile, Tesla's Gigafactory in Germany will keep churning out more prototypes with the new colors until it irons out the kinks of layering all those Multicoat colors that look different based on the angle you are staring at.

So far, Giga Berlin has only been producing Black or White Model Y SUVs, but this boring combo may soon be up for a much needed change as Tesla slowly introduces new car colors to its roster.
