Some of the boat paints can be had in a tintable base, meaning they can mix whatever color you want.

If you want something less expensive like Rustoleum you can always buy a couple colors and experiment.

I mixed my own Rusto to come up with the blue on my truck

Thanks HD, You may have seen this but here is the color chart from the marine place that Mapexgurl ordered her paint from.

More expensive but probably better than Rusto and a lot more selection.

That Supermarine looks excellent for automotive use. Seems to be an oxygen catalyzed enamel.

Much more expensive, but maybe someone will use it to see if it's worth it

I've seen nice dark red's or "cherry black's " mixed with rusto black and red . The more black you add the darker the red . I have seen some that were a beautiful burgandy on other forums.
