I created this UK car database in January 2019 after multiple people requested me to do this job. For long time I avoided spending additional effort to make additional databases for Europe because I already had the AutoKatalog-based Car Models & Engines Database for whole Europe that has been purchased by many people in UK without problems, and the more detailed German Car Database was not selling well.

But… a small number of people wanted a more detailed database than European one (which have 1 row per body / engine / drivetrain combination, ignoring trims / equipment versions). Some did purchased German one but the ones from UK wanted an UK-specific one. I made a scraper for the most famous UK car website and it was easier than originally expected, easier than German and American websites I also extracted data for their databases. I feel sorry for not creating this UK car database earlier!

    1. Been gradually adding CSV / SQL beside XLS since March 2020, starting from best-selling databases, UK database sales are lower, so I added only now.
