With the reference to Moore, I can only say Roger Moore. the Saint, James Bond or the Persuaders??? Not sure as I think the James Bond Aston's are all from the Sean Connery era.

Jim, you may have made a typo by writing DB3. That's more like the Lesney.
DB5 and DB6 we're the early gadget cars.
Although Corgi ended up making around 7 versions of the DB5, Last one opens the doors with the kiwi actor Daniel Craig behind the wheel

Malcolm, you may be correct as the Lotus Esprit was used in the Spy Who Loved Me which starred Roger Moore.
My Bad for not remembering that car.

notoriously the most unreliable of Corgi models to actually stay together as its locking mechanism always gives out.

Not a VW and while it has competed in sport I would not call it a sports Car.
