The model comes unchanged from how it appeared with the boys back in the 00s, with one red door and explicit ‘honk if you want a b******’ bumper sticker.

The car was given to Sim (Joe Thomas) as a gift for passing his driving test, but the sticker was later placed by Jay (James Buckley) much to Simon’s despair in the show’s third series, back in 2010.

In the first series, main characters Will (Simon Bird), Jay and Blake (Neil) took a trip in it to Thorpe Park, before managing to pull one of the doors clean off.

The infamous ‘bus w*****’ incident happened when the boys went on a trip to London during the show’s second series.

The iconic phrase was coined up when Simon was grabbed by a stranger after Jay called out to a group of strangers at a bus stop.

The car will go under the hammer on 28 May, during the auctioneer's 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.”

The Inbetweeners is available to watch on All4.
