Managing editor

Allan Muir is a journalist with nearly 40 years’ experience, specialising in magazine production. He has been managing editor of What Car? since 2015. Prior to that, he held the same position on sister title Autocar twice, from 2006-2015 and 1995-1999, and was a sub-editor and production editor on the same title before that, having emigrated from New Zealand in 1990. 

In between those two stints at Autocar, Allan was deputy editor of Car magazine for three years before relocating to Australia in 2003. There, he ran a motoring special projects department at ACP in Sydney, producing one-shot magazines for the likes of Wheels, Motor and Street Machine. He returned to the UK in 2006.

Allan has been involved in magazine and newspaper production for his entire career, having started out on daily morning newspapers in New Zealand, where he picked up the black art of subbing. All of his training has been on the job. He now oversees all aspects of production and editorial standards on the What Car? brand, both in print and online.
