About Auto Motor und Sport Magazine
Auto Motor und Sport is a is a leading German automobile magazine. It is published fortnightly by Motor Presse Netzwerk subsidiary Motor Presse Stuttgart, a specialist magazine publisher that is 59.9% owned by the publishing house Gruner + Jahr.
The magazine, originally published in Freiburg, was the creation of three men, two of them racing drivers, named Paul Pietsch and Ernst Troeltsch, and the third a business man named Joeef Hummel. The first edition, entitled simply "Das Auto" appeared in time for Christmas in 1946 with a cover price of RM 1.50. It was edited and in large part written by F.A.L.Martin who enriched the magazine with his report of automotive developments on the USA. A two-page feature highlighted the virtues of the "Jeep", a word that "appeared in no dictionary but nonetheless defined the ideal vehicle for agriculture and forestry". Two more pages were devoted to the future of nuclear power, incorporating four striking pictures of different nuclear explosions, but concluding that on cost grounds oil based fuels were likely to continue to power motor vehicles in the immediate future because of the high cost of "atomic fuel" (Atombetriebsstoff) applying currently known technologies.
