|Welcome to ''Autocade'' (in beta), the international, editable automotive database. It is a wiki—with a difference. It’s global, rather than geographically biased; and, we hope, more accurate than general sites such as ''Wikipedia'', due to careful editing. It’s aimed at car enthusiasts, including the motoring press, who may want a quick reference to international models.
