also, metallic beige brought up some nice pictures on google images, one, a metallic beige car from russia, and the other a guy huffing metallic beige, aka, gold paint. looks pretty similar ;)

If you see the car in person, and you actually look at it in the light... It's almost gold, but not quite.
Metallic Beige is definitely the right name, though I call it gold just for simplicity sakes, too. It doesn't have the same 'punch' that gold has, it's not as rich.
