Description & History

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.

  1. Dear Teoalida,
    I tried to do the live chat yesterday but our company quarantines the validation emails – by the time I release them the link has expired!
    I just need to know: which database would I need for information on the lengths, widths, heights and wheelbases of UK cars?
    Or do I need a bespoke database? I just need the up-to-date data for this.
    Thank you and kind regards,
