A new trilogy of books based on Ian Fleming’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is to be published later this year – with a VW camper starring in the title role.

The books, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, will feature a family where the father has just been made redundant. He begins to self-build his own motorhome, with a VW camper as the base; unknowingly, he fits the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang engine within the vehicle. The trilogy will follow the adventures of the family in the camper, which has the ability to fly.
