As children, we'd watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and dream of having our every own magical motorcar - now one man has gone and created one!

John Rothwell has spent three years creating a replica of the famous flying car. And check out how good it looks...

Man builds replica of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

The 51-year-old used the frame of a Reliant Robin – just like the car in Only Fools and Horses – to build the three-wheeled vehicle that comes complete with wings.

John, who is a huge fan of the classic family flick, spent around £4,000 building the car.

The Cambridge-based chap said: "I've always liked the film and a few years ago I joked with my friends that one day I'd build a trike version of the Chitty car and now I have."

He added: "I'm a jeweller by trade, so I'm pretty good with my hands, but even so, this project came with a steep learning curve."

Now all he needs to do is to get it to fly – that really would be impressive!
