Hey All, 

Like the title says I am looking to get a close match to the metallic BRG used on some of the mid 2000's DB9 race cars.  I like this color because it is a silver based green rather than a gold like so many of the popuar greens right now.  

 

I can find pictures, but I have never seen this car in person.  Where can I get a sample of this?  Ideas i've come up with so far are the following: 

- Go to a paint shop and "color eye" a picture. 

- Find a model car (1/16, 1/24, etc.) with the right paint code and "color eye" 

- Model builder paint from Maestro (sp?) 

From my research, I cant find a color code anywhere online.  I appreciate any help you may be able to offer.  

 

Pictures of the color I am trying to match:

Have you tried contacting Aston Martin or Prodrive?

The Auto Color Library has color chip charts with paint codes for just about any car you can think of, they should have Aston Martin.  For some reason the site isn't opening up for me right now, but it's www.autocolorlibrary.com.

If  you can't open it, try this site which appears to have Aston Martin colors for most years: https://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedisplay.cgi?make=Aston%20Martin

I don't think it is but "Viridian Green" is something to behold.
