Nicolas' first car recollection was the back of his family's friend's Bugatti 37 at 6. After many Alfa Romeos, it wasn't until he drove an AC Propulsion eBox in 2006 and a Tesla Roadster that it was clear where the future of the automobile was, the electric drive. Contemporary cars don't spark his interest as much as old ones and now alternative energy vehicles. Nicolas has been covering auto news for the past seven years.
