Who is Mike Brewer?

Mark Brewer is a British television presenter and car enthusiast. 

He was born in Lambeth, London, on August 28, 1964.

Brewer is best known as the host of Wheeler Dealers, the Discovery Channel’s car programme, which he has presented since 2003. 

The premise of the show is that Brewer and the other presenters have a mission to save old vehicles, fix up old cars on a budget, and sell them to a new owner.

Brewer’s co-presenter has changed over the years: Edd China was his first co-host, followed by Ant Anstead, and most recently, Marc “Elvis” Priestley. 

But Brewer is not only a presenter — alongside his television work, he is still active in the motor industry, and opened Mike Brewer Motors in 2012, a dealership in Sheffield. 

He also launched the annual Used Car Award for used car dealers in the UK, a black-tie event in London. 

What other shows has Mike Brewer presented?

Brewer started his television career in 1997, on Channel 4’s Deals on Wheels, and ITV’s Pulling Power. 

In 1999, he presented Driven on Channel 4 for one year. 

Then in 2003, Wheeler Dealers started, on the Discovery Channel, which Brewer has presented ever since. 

In 2009, Brewer presented another show on the Discovery Channel — Auto Trader.

Since 2020, Brewer has also hosted the Wheeler Dealers spin-off show on the Discovery Channel, Wheeler Dealers: Dream Car. 

For the Discovery Channel, Brewer has also presented Deals on Wheels, Wrecks to Riches, and Frontline Battle Machines.

In 2020, Brewer took a turn co-hosting a show called The World’s Greatest Cars, on Quest. 

Alongside television presenting, Brewer launched the Wheeler Dealer Podcast in February 2023, which has so far run for two series.

What is Mike Brewer’s net worth?

For his over two decades of career as a television star, Mike Brewer has amassed an incredible fortune that rakes in millions of dollars.

Per reports, he has an estimated current net worth of between $1.5 million and $4 million (£1.2 million to £3.2 million). Some sources also indicate that his annual salary is $250,000. 

He accrued his money from his long presenting career and other business ventures. 

Despite his motor industry fame, Brewer is famously down-to-earth.

What cars has Mike Brewer owned?

It comes as no surprise that Brewer has a significant collection of classic cars. 

Brewer’s first car was a beige Mini 850cc, but he has driven a wide range of cars in the interim period. 

In 2021, Brewer announced that despite ridiculing electric cars, he’d taken the plunge and bought himself a Porsche Taycan. 

That same year, Brewer decided to auction off a selection of his own cars, many of which he’s restored and maintained himself, at the Silverstone Auctions at NEC Classic Motor Show.

In the lot were a 1972 Citroen SM 2.7 four-seat coupé, a 1967 Mini Cooper 1275 S, a 1961 Austin Seven Mini 1961, a 1966 Ford Cortina Lotus Mk1, and a 2002 Ferrari 360 Spider F1.

Despite his love for his collection of cars, Brewer’s schedule didn’t allow him the time to drive and car for all of them. 

Brewer has previously said he believes classic cars “are there to be driven. I know that first hand because I’ve got a collection.”

He said: “Buy something you love, buy something you’re interested in because when you love the car you’re much more likely to be willing to spend time on it, to look after it, to drive it.”

Brewer also revealed that his Ford Fiesta Mk1 was stolen in June 2023, a car that had been restored by Brewer and Priestly to mark the 20th anniversary of Wheeler Dealers.

Despite offering a £5000 reward for the card, as of November 2023, it has not been recovered.

Where does Mike Brewer live?

English car trader-turned-presenter, Mike Brewer has been married once in his lifetime to his longtime spouse, Michelle.

Mike and Michelle tied the knot in 1992 and have been together ever since.

At the time of their nuptial, the presenter was 28 while his wife was 30. This means they have a 2-year age gap.

He has a daughter named Chloe Brewer who he shares with his wife, Michelle.

The couple are thought to live in Warwickshire with their daughter.
