Adrian Padeanu is the news editor, Europe at Motor1.com and has been working here from 2012 (since the old days of WorldCarFans). Before that, he sold car insurance during his college years. Since 2021, he has also been writing for BMWBLOG. He graduated from Economy and Business Administration with a Master's Degree in European Business Management.
His current garage includes a 2008 Kia Pro Cee’d, a 2017 Skoda Octavia, and a 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, all of which have manual gearboxes. Although he has a soft spot for cheap, no-frills cars like the Dacia Logan he used to own, his dream car is a BMW M340i Touring or an M3 Touring without the ghastly kidney grille.
