Ab Fab car goes on show at Beaulieu

Published 15 July 2016

The high-profile getaway car used by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie has been put on show at Beaulieu.

The Piaggio Ape, which has come straight from the film set to Beaulieu, is featured in a key scene as Eddy and Patsy make their bid to escape from the police trying to track them down.

It will join the celebrity, TV and film greats in On Screen Cars at Beaulieu, alongside Elvis’ Cadillac, Del Boy’s Reliant Regal from BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses, the flying Ford Anglia from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Wallace and Gromit’s Anti-Pesto Van.

The Piaggio Ape can be seen in On Screen Cars as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction, which includes the National Motor Museum, the World of Top Gear, the 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and grounds and Palace House, which has been home to the Montagu family since 1538.
