Default Gunmetal paint???

I'm looking to repaint my car, it's currently black and I'm looking at doing some kind of gray metallic but I don't want it to look stock. I was hoping to do like a 70% black if you're a designer and understand the CMYK term. With that I wanted like a silver pearl to lighten it up a bit, but I haven't found anything yet that I really liked. Does anyone have any suggestions or seen any dark grays/gunmetal colors? Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.

Nice guys thanks for the suggestions, really digging that Anthracite Metallic and that lambo color . . . is the color REVENTON or is that the name of the model? I've never seen it before which is why I ask.

Also, your cousins RX-7, what's the name of that color?


Keep in mind my wheel color and pieces of CF, here is my car currently:

Ah Steve, I was gonna post this if I didn't see it here.



Steve's car is painted "gunmetal", and when sitting next to a silverstone car, you can notice that it's a bit darker. Looks good man.
