A little about
encyCARpedia

What

Although made by a petrolhead who wanted to find all these specs about cars, encyCARpedia has been created to make it easy for everyone who has even the slightest of interest. You can find basic information like acceleration and MPG, to more in-depth specs like cargo space and vehicle weight. We even have nerdy stuff like power-to-weight ratio (hp/Tonne) and specific output (hp/L).
On the technical (website) side of things, we've designed the site to be responsive, making it adapt to any screen size without restricting features. Thanks to this you get the same experience across all your devices.
We've also optimised the site to have fast page load times, both for convenience and for when you're using your mobile data.

On some car spec pages, you might see a "UK Still Registered By Year Of First Registration" graph. This data is provided by the Department for Transport and can be found freely available here.

Who

Dave

Dave

Despite the photo, Dave is actually a person and not a car. He's a bit of a petrolhead and loves his Honda S2000 (pictured). He enjoys long road trips and doesn't mind driving 12 hours in a day as long as it's on scenic & twisty country roads without too many other cars.
Living in the South of England, he dreams of moving to somewhere with well-paved empty roads.
He's been making websites since his teens and had the basic idea for encyCARpedia in 2008, but didn't have the necessary skills at the time. 8 1/2 years later he realised it was finally time to create a website he was truly passionate about.
Oh yeah, he also sometimes talks about himself in third-person (I know he knows, that's an overused joke).

Sue

Sue

After taking a degree in Geography, Sue trained as an Accountant, and has put her knowledge to good use running several successful businesses, including Podiatry, which she returned to University to study. Now retired, she is excited to be involved with Encycarpedia, sharing her experience and knowledge to help drive the business forwards.
When I set about making this site, I wanted to make the most useful car encyclopedia on the internet. I wanted it to be easy to use and interesting even for non-car nuts. I hope I've achieved that. I'm going to keep on improving this site regardless. I try to make sure all the specs are accurate, but there may be errors occasionally (report an error). Thanks for using this site, I hope it was helpful.
