I think he is looking for the exact colour code that the paint manufacturers use, not the marketing name that Aston Martin gives them.

Hello, thanks for the reply.

i have found out that the colour of the AMV8 Vantage is a special color. The dealer was very friendly and gave me formula for mixing the color. It is called GunMetal.

According to the dealer the first one of the vanquish pictures should be skye silver ....

By the way ... it doesnt matter if it is Aston Martin's name of the color or the exact color code...

actually the name of the color is great as i can compare with pictures then.

Skye Silver and GunMetal are both correct. What do you need the colours for? Making scale models?

As for Gun Metal here is the info from my AMV8 Press Kit...

PPG Industries

Colour Name: 305 Gun Metal
Colour Code: AST 1301
Basecoat: (MBC) / 2K
Activator: DCH4074Q
