Automobile Year was launched in 1953 by Ami Guichard, a young Swiss entrepreneur of 32 years of age. He invested himself completely in his new venture. The best writers and photographers, including Charles Faroux, Count Lurani, Yves Debraine, and many others, joined him and he also benefited from the encouragement of journalist, engineer and racing driver Paul Frère, who still continues to contribute to the annual today.

From the first issue on, Automobile Year was published in English, in French (L'Année Automobile) and in German (Auto-Jahr), and it acquired an international reputation of excellence for the originality of its subjects, the quality of its photography and the attention to its printing.

Until his untimely death in 1986, Ami Guichard managed Automobile Year with the help of a team of specialists carefully selected for each edition in complement to the residential staff. The publication was then taken over by Jean-Rodolphe Piccard, who had been hired in 1976 already as an editorial secretary, and Editions JR replaced Edita.

In January 2005, well known car enthusiast Christian Philippsen became the proud new owner of the Automobile Year assets. It is a book he had cherished since his childhood and it is his intention to pursue the work initiated by his two predecessor and to make it ever better over the years.

After having inspired numerous other annuals, after having been copied, Automobile Year remains today – as it was 52 years ago – the only annual devoted to the automobile, covering its worldwide industry, racing championships and its heroes. * * * In-depth coverage of everything that mattered in the world of cars during the year • Three sections
