Top 10: Wheeler Dealer cars

Those cheeky chaps on Wheeler Dealers have been buying and doing up cars for more than ten years. To celebrate all their hard work, fans of the show have picked their ten favourite motors to drive out of Mike and Edd's lock-up.

Top place went to the Lamborghini Urraco P250S, which featured in series ten of the hit TV show. Mike Brewer brought the car for £21,380 – making it the most expensive motor on the show.

In storage for six years in Poland, it couldn’t be started because of a loose cambelt, or moved because of seized brakes. After Edd China and co gave it some much-needed TLC, it was sold for £35,000.

Mike said: ‘It's fantastic that the nation has chosen such a great Top Ten. All of our favourites are in the list but the truth is we have loved every one of the 100 cars we’ve done over the past 11 years.

‘The Urracco was a special show, as it's one of the most desirable cars ever and a real treat to get ‘a Bull in the China shop’. It culminated with a brilliant test drive through the Dolomites on Edd’s birthday.’

Lamborghini Urraco P250S (Series 10)

Bought in Lamborghini's 50th year, it cost the lads more money than they'd ever spent before...and they couldn't even start the engine. It might be a hugely desirable car, but parts for it don't exactly fall off the shelf. It could've put the boys on a direct route to bankruptcy, but Edd pulled out all the stops to get the Lambo back on the road without breaking the bank.

A worthy car for the top 10 classics from Wheeler Dealers. These cars have an amazing survival rate which is unlikely to be matched by any current models. These cars are sufficiently interesting to enjoy for the long term. I know since I purchased my Triumph Stag brand new in 1973 and I have never regretted keeping it. I also own a Mercedes SL - R230 which I regard has a future classic but I still adore my Triumph Stag.
