Mercedes, BMW, Audi and VW – Germany is a nation of car nuts. The Local List counts down the country's most legendary rides.

Germany is famous for its precision-engineered automobiles and the high-speed autobahn. But the car industry's economic impact is huge, providing nearly a million Germans with employment.

From Volkswagen to Porsche, sports cars to reliable camper vans, Germany has not only produced some of the most popular and iconic cars and accounts for nearly a third of all autos produced in Europe.

But while Germany might produce around six million new vehicles each year, many of the classics still remain cherished by car-lovers the world over. Even vehicles such as the rickety old East German Trabant are still favourites.

After careful deliberation, The Local has compiled its own Top Ten. Click on the link and have a look through to see if you agree with our choices.
