With more than two decades of experience writing about cars and the car industry, Michael Taylor's work is now published regularly in more than 20 countries.

After establishing himself as one of the foremost motoring journalists in Australia, he moved to Italy in 2006. Beginning his working career on The Chronicle regional daily newspaper in Toowoomba, Australia, he progressed through The Courier-Mail in Brisbane to win awards for road tests and feature stories with the Royal Automobile Club of Australia's magazine, The Road Ahead.

He rose to the position of motoring editor on The Daily Telegraph, and was editor of both 4X4 Australia and Motor magazines in their glory days.

He still writes for both Australian publications like Carsales.com.au and Motor, but his work is also found prominently in Forbes and Engine Technology International.

He also contributes to AutoWeek, Autoblog and Car and Driver in the US, Business Day in South Africa, Autologia in Mexico and Chile and other publications in Brazil, Argentina, China and Japan.
