He works for British intelligence. I'm thinking he's based on some kind of coachbuilt Aston Martin.

I have a couple possibilities for his inspiration:

I agree that the above cars look close, especially the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Touring Spyder. However, I think we should wait until a good shot of the back is available before naming it for sure.

Just watched the trailer, it seems they got Michael Caine to do the voice! Elements of this are clearly from the DB5 (bonnet air vent, wing mirrors, wire wheels, rear lights), although other parts may also be from other cars.

I don't think so, this character is supposed to be suave and debonair, Skodas used to be the opposite of that in Britain :D I agree with CA NES, it's meant to be a 'tache.

It's a very precise depiction, so I would think is something real and very close to what appears on screen. I can see lots of bits which look accurate (eg Volvo P1800 cabin, BMW 507 side trim and rear fins) but nothing to fit the full car, and I don't really see any Aston Martin or Sunbeam Alpine. Perhaps we should be looking for coachbuilt late-50s exotic - Maserati, Alfa, Pegaso, Lancia???

To me it looks like a mix of cars, mostly DB5. Personally I'd hesistate to list this an Aston Martin DB5 because (rather like a Grand Theft Auto III car) it's only partially this rather than 100%, maybe "Made For Movie based on Aston Martin DB5" (or whatever you want to write)

Anyway, the Skoda 440 is the only car I've found with such a grille, which is a pity - it looks great.

I'm much more convinced by this suggestion. General shape - particularly cabin - from 8V Ghia with tidied side details. Some 8V Zagatos match the front very well (eg Link to "www.zagato-cars.com" ). There may even be a single 8V which gives the right blend on the same car, or it's a Fiat 8V Made For Movie??

This car has obviously been created with imagination, and is a special mixture of several cars. I know that the body Supersonic was on the Fiat 8V and Aston Martin (also on the Jaguar XK), but the front is fully equal to the Fiat 8V Supersonic, rather than the Aston Martin. Look at the hood air intake and headlights: they have that shape only on the Fiat, and there is even the badge "8V"!
The tail is rather Aston Martin, but not the Supersonic.

Remembering a few years back I put a lot of work into building a Historic Racing Saloon based on one of the Peerless successors, a Warwick GT350, built with a 3.5 Buick V8.
Asides being a few shades lighter in colour the car is very much Finn McMissile. The link below is a picture of it running at the Goodwood Revival in 2009.

It's pretty obvious it's DB5-inspired but we don't feel it's a faithful enough rendering of the DB5 to let it be listed as one. They've been a bit creative rather than completely copying the DB5's design.

Wikipedia states in it's article on Cars characters:

"The design of Finn is inspired by several cars, the roofline and doors of the Volvo P1800 (possibly inspired by Roger Moore's ownership of one while filming The Saint TV espionage series in the early 1960s), the grill and fenders of the BMW 507, and some major elements of the iconic James Bond Aston Martin DB5. The look of the car has been slightly modified; Finn has a different grill that looks like a suave mustache, but like Bond, he does have plenty of gadgets. His small tailfins were inspired by a 1958 British sports car called the Peerless, one of the few British cars with fins."

According to Auto Weekly, Finn is based off the James Bond "Die Another Day" Aston Martin V12 Vanguish. Great car. Maybe it was also given characteristics of all the James Bond cars throughout the years.

The only thing that betrays Aston influence in the design is Finn's trunk badge, which is a stylized recreation of the Aston DB-series logo (a small "DB" above the model number). Finn has something quite similar - "FM" with a large "M" underneath. If nothing else, it indicates that an Aston was part of the idea.

Hey guys... Does anyone remember the DB4 Volante that Sir Caine drove in the Italian Job (Not the crappy disgusting remake to be clear)??? He shot a lot of tigers as I recall. Oh yeah, with a machine gun. lol If you want to see a Aston DB4 destroyed in all it's glory, watch the part after Raf Vallone says "pretty car". It made me cry more than "Brian's Song". I see a GT6, P1800 (Mini 95 nailed it), DB4, and a Peerless specialty racer (the rear fins) in Sir Caine's animated alter ego. Nice one on the birthdate there Mustanglady75. :)
