Only Fools and Horses original yellow Reliant Regal Supervan prop. This prop appeared in the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony featuring Rodney and Del Boy’s memorable characters of Batman and Robin who appeared from the vehicle. The van was fitted with pyrotechnics to coincide with a countdown by Michael Caine with the iconic statement ‘You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors orf’, which it memorably did in true Trotter style. The London Olympics were watched by the Royal Family along with 21 million viewers.

This was commissioned by the London Olympic Games Committee specifically for the closing show. It was supplied by a specialist dealer in Worcestershire and converted to the prop for the ceremony. You simply must watch the YouTube video where you will see the bonnet, doors and boot ‘blown off’ along with some spectacular pyrotechnics! Due to the nature of the explosions in the show, the engine, gearbox and running gear were removed so this is now a (VERY COOL) moveable prop.

The front wheel is fixed, the 2 rear wheels are effectively clip on covers and the whole car sits on moveable casters making it really simply to manoeuvre.

It really is an incredibly special thing with decals, paintwork finish and even interior just like Del’s

The car is complete with a whole host of 2012 Olympic Games memorabilia and accessories. This really is a unique piece and a fantastic focal point/conversational piece. It’s so hard to value one with provenance, but to put things into perspective… the actual show used 6 cars, one of which sold recently for £36,000 at Silverstone Auctions!

To summarise… this is THE car which you saw in the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games! It is effectively a prop as is has no engine or running gear. It will get LOADS of attention, so ideal for promo work or to hire out for events. Or it would make such an incredible display piece for your garage/office/Man Cave with an amazing back story!

Viewing possible at Broadway, Cotswolds WR12. Don’t hesitate to contact with any sensible questions and to arrange your viewing.
