Not so, according to Wikipedia.
They lost £245 on the Capri, £770 on a Suzuki SJ, £2325 on a VW T3, £85 on a Mercedes 190E, £35 on a Range Rover, £75 on a Jaguar XK8 and £3107 on an AMC Pacer. Of course, as noted previously, the real-world losses would have been much more, as the figures shown on the programme don't involve labour or workshop costs.
I stand corrected.....Good old Wiki
I know for a fact the Mk1 XR2 episode (S11 Ep1) MB drove it into the back of the camera car on the test drive, breaking the spotlight and damaging the bumper. He didn't own up too it on camera though, just made an issue of the repair cost
When he paid the owner £2000, I really hope they gave extra off camera to compensate!!
