I am currently working on the Tamiya Aston Martin DBS ,this is a comission build for my old boss it will represent his sons car .What I am looking for is as close a match as possible to Aston Martin Tungsten Silver, now I cannot go near the car  as it will give the game away.Any help any of you can give will be most welcome  :D

What Ratch said. If they don't have it already in their paint range they will mix it for you. It costs a bit more than off the shelf, either in a can or spray, but if the boss is paying he can afford it.

If you're looking for model oriented paints you could try Zero paint supplied by Hiroboy. You will need Zero primer and laqcuer and whilst I've not used these paints myself, they are very popular amongst petrol head modellers - but, I'm informed they are not particularly user friendly and require a well ventilated space for working in.
