Hugues Gonnot

With a background in engineering, Hugues Gonnot’s passion for cars is ultimately what drove him to become an automotive writer in 2000. For as long as he can remember, he has always been fascinated with everything on four wheels, devouring any car-related magazine or article he could find.

Hugues served as editor-in-chief for two different magazines and one website. He also contributed to several publications. His interests cover all aspects of the automobile—except motorsport—and he is particularly fond of classic American cars like those land yachts from the 1970s and 1980s.
