Watch: The infamous 'Inbetweeners' car is up for sale

The infamous car featured in comedy series The Inbetweeners is now up for sale. 

In the Channel 4 programme, the yellow 1996 Fiat Cinquecento with a red door belonged to Simon (Joe Thomas) who was given the vehicle by his parents after passing his driving test. 

It's set to go under the hammer on 28 May at East Bristol Auctions during its specialist Entertainment Memorabilia Auction.

Auctioneer Andrew Stow said: "It’s a really fun piece of memorabilia. It’s not the Batmobile, or the Ghostbusters’ Ecto 1, but for people who know the series - it may as well be!

"When it arrived at our saleroom there was literally a queue of passers-by wanting their picture taken with it. 

"It’s just so British. It’s an underdog, an unloved car – yet everyone wants a piece of it. Quite remarkable for a twenty-year-old yellow Fiat!"

It once belonged to a well-known stuntman and was used in a stunt show after The Inbetweeners.

The car made its debut in the third episode of the first season, where a door came clean off before the vehicle was vandalised.

It was also part of one of the comedy's most iconic scenes when it came to an unexpected stop near a bus stop after they'd heckled the people waiting, calling them "bus w***ers". 

Despite the cars’ reputation on screen it comes in good condition with a full year’s MOT.
