Antoine Joubert

Antoine was a motor vehicle enthusiast long before he could even say the word “car.” In fact, his first utterings were probably the rumblings of an engine. By the age of four, he knew the logos for different vehicle makes and by the time he was six, he could tell what type of car was driving past based on its sound. Buying toys for the young lad was easy enough—all he wanted were Matchbox, Hot Wheels and Majorette model cars so that he could modify them, paint them and race them!

His passion for automobiles is long-standing and has never wavered. Like many car buffs, he grew up reading the Guide de l’auto (and he still owns all the old copies) but he has since broadened his library to several other publications. Antoine has been an automobile journalist for nearly 20 years and through his work he shares his vast knowledge and uncensored opinions.

As a multidisciplinary communicator, Antoine can be seen on TV, heard on the radio, read online or followed on social media. But whatever you do, don’t ask him about what his dream car would be. This is a man who could never settle for a single car!
