WHEELER DEALERS: TRADING UP is the all-new series that follows Brewer on a car-buying journey spanning the globe to discover the best tricks to upgrade old autos and flip them for a tidy profit.

WHEELER DEALERS: TRADING UP premieres on Velocity Wednesday, July 10 at 9:00PM (ET/PT).

"Wheeler Dealers is a cornerstone franchise for Velocity, and our viewers can't get enough of the combination of automotive expertise and the drama of the deal," said Bob Scanlon General Manager of Velocity. "No one is better than Mike Brewer when it comes to dealing in the international car market. The combination of exotic locales and exotic cars makes this the perfect summer series for Velocity."

WHEELER DEALERS: TRADING UP is a spin-off of the hit series WHEELER DEALERS, which follows Mike and ace mechanic Edd China on search to find and restore old 4-wheel treasures. In WHEELER DEALERS: TRADING UP, Brewer leaves behind his trusted friend as he looks to turn an initial $3,000 into a $30,000 super car through buying, selling and negotiating used cars, Brewer travels all over the globe starting in India and ending up in the Middle East. Viewers will get to experience the ups and downs of Brewers' quest as he moves from one deal to the next, one country after another, spotting motor bargains and trading up along the way. As Brewer travels he will add value to each of the cars he buys in hopes of turning a quick profit. Will Brewers instincts let him down?

Episode Descriptions

Episode 1 - India Premieres July 10 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) With just $3000 in his pocket, Mike begins his adventure in India. He trades up from a tiny hatchback to an estate car before finding a Hindustan Ambassador, which captures the spirit of the country. Built continuously for 70 years it is based on the classic Morris Oxford and still has a keen Indian following, especially among politicians. Mike believes taking an 'Amby' to the UK will rev up a big profit.

Episode 2 - UK Premieres July 17 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) Mike returns to the UK for the next part of his journey where he has to find a buyer for his imported Hindustan Ambassador and turn a profit on the best of British cars. He transforms a Triumph Spitfire and Land Rover Defender as well as visits his old South London stomping ground. His final deal is a 'left field decision' to buy a left hand drive US car to export.

Episode 3 - Sweden Premieres July 24 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) Mike chooses to visit Sweden because there is a big market for American cars. But can he make the leap from pick-up truck to an iconic Volvo sports coupe, and get closer to his $30,000 goal? Along the way he has the drive of his life in a full contact off-road car race and he buys and sells a true Swedish beauty - a Saab 96.

Episode 4 - Japan Premieres July 31 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) Mike arrives in Japan and immediately realizes it's all about 'small is beautiful'. The 'Kei car' sums up this attitude to life and is probably the smallest car he's ever bought and sold. In Japan, car dealing is done in volume - it's all about shifting the units digitally over cyber auctions. Mike works hard to overcome a huge culture clash and faces huge frustration as his profits melt away when his classic Toyota breaks down on Mount Fuji.

Episode 5 - Mexico & United States. Premieres August 7 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) Mike heads out West to Mexico City, teaming up with car dealer Carlos he discovers that Mexico is the home away from home of the VW Beetle. Having turned good money he heads North to the USA where he buys a British classic and turns the biggest profit of the series. He takes the well-earned cash and invests in a classic in tip top condition - a one lady owner from new 1967 Chevrolet Camaro.

Episode 6 - Dubai Premieres August 14 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) In the season finale, Mike travels to the Middle East, hoping that his final trades will help him reach the motoring jackpot. But his Camaro is stuck out on the ocean and he struggles to find a way to trade his way out of trouble. He enjoys the 4x4 culture of Dubai and buys and sells a big off-roader, but will his long held plan to buy a supercar be fulfilled, or will he fail at the final hurdle? Will this Wheeler Dealer go big or just go home.
