The boys spent £1000-£3000 on their ode to the original and on Thursday it was used to transport them to their prom at Ashlyns School in Berkhamsted.
The group of boys said they started throwing around ideas of quirky ways to get to their big night a few months ago.
One of the boys, Joshua Wrathall, told Mail Online: ‘We went through a couple of ideas like tractors and multiple seat bicycles until I suggested the idea of the Inbetweeners car and immediately me and the boys knew that’s what we wanted.’
Joshua added that they decided to keep the idea a secret from everyone else in their year.

‘After a few weeks of watching certain cars we eventually found a Fiat Cinquecento (in white) for a good price.
‘We bought the car from Reading and my dad took it back to Berkhamsted,’ said Joshua.
He told Mail Online that a friend of his father’s who works with cars took the Fiat into his workshop to paint it the red and yellow that makes it an uncanny rendition of the famous car.
Actors from The Inbetweeners drive the actual car through London for charity in 2011 and famously called out ‘bus w*****rs’ to those at a bus stop

‘On July 4th we took a trip to the prom (maybe making a detour to some bus stops) and surprised everyone with the car,’ added Joshua, referring to a famous scene in the show.
Tweeting the pictures to some of the shows stars they said: ‘One way of getting to Prom.’
People loved the post and one even tweeted them calling them ‘legends’, while others left memes.
The car became as famous as the geeky teenagers in the award winning show when they shouted ‘bus w****rs’ while driving past a bus stop in the beaten up car, but then hilariously got stuck in a traffic jam.
