Automobile Year is the English version of L'Année Automobile, a yearbook specializing in motoring and motor sport, published annually in French. 

The editorial project was launched in 1953 by Ami Guichard, a Swiss motoring writer and entrepreneur from Lausanne, who published it through his company Edita S.A.

He brought along the best writers and photographers he knew, including Charles Faroux (the founder of the 24 Hours of Le Mans), Giovanni Lurani and Yves Debraine.

Since its launch, the content has been split into three different sections, Industry, Motorsport and Culture.

Following an introduction by the editor, the book begins with a section about the motor industry with news and new car launches.

The motorsport section follows, starting with a section on Formula One and highly significant single-seater series (A1GP, Indianapolis 500, IRL and Champ Car), followed by endurance racing reviews (24 Hours of Le Mans, Le Mans Series, American Le Mans Series and FIA GT Championship), then touring car racing and finally rallying (World Rally Championship and Dakar Rally). A section for car culture concludes the series.

This is No. 13, 1965-66 edition. Contains 223 printed pages of text, with colour and monochrome photographs throughout.
