How much you pay to have your own Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is frequently listed when people are asked about their favourite childhood films, but most of these fans settle for watching the film again if they want a reminder of ‘toot sweet’.

However, one dedicated fan decided that he wanted something a little bit more solid to remember the film with. The 30-year-old spent 12 years building a perfect replica of the starring car.

Now, 43 years after the film’s initial release, the replica of the car is set to be auctioned off to the public, and is expected to sell for about £250,000.

The wealthy buyer can rest assured that they will have purchased an authentic replica as the creator ensured that every aspect of the vehicle is identical to the original car, which was famously driven by Dick van Dyke.

We applaud this man’s dedication, but we don’t think that anyone here at duck2water would have the patience to spend 12 years building their dream car!
