l'Auto-Journal is a bimonthly magazine created in 1950 by Robert Hersant and editor-in-chief Gilles Guérithault, devoted to automobiles. Notable journalists who have worked for l'Auto-Journal include Roland Gaucher and Jean-Marie Balestre. The headquarters is in Paris.
The journal pioneered "automobile scoops". Famously, they published pictures of the radical new Citroën DS in April and June 1952, more than three years ahead of the car's October 1955 launch at the Paris Motor Show. Sketches of the future cars appeared, drawn by the car specialist and historian René Bellu.
