Scalextric produced a model of the MG Metro 6R4 rally car featured in the show, painted in the fictitious "Ternco Oils" livery. Apparently only 400 were produced so the model has become something of a collector's item.
In September 2012 a dealer was offering one on e-Bay boxed and in mint condition (right) for a hundred and thirty pounds. (The 'Beatties' model shop price sticker on the box read twelve pound forty-five pence!)The listing read:
