Britain's worst car: Austin Allegro

LONDON, July 17 (UPI) -- British residents have voted the Austin Allegro the worst car to ever traverse the U.K.'s roads.

The poll of 4,000 people found the Allegro, which was once the fifth best-selling car in Britain, was the most hated among respondents, with nearly a quarter of those polled expressing a loathing for the vehicle, The Scotsman reported Thursday.

The Allegro was despised for its tendency to rust, poor quality of construction and the tendency for the rear window to pop out.

The second worst car to grace British roads chosen by those polled was the Morris Ital with 23.4 percent of votes and the Talbot Sunbeam was voted third worst vehicle with 11.5 percent.

The survey was commissioned by
