Philips RacingVision GT200 has won the prestigious Auto Express title of Headlamp of the Year in the 2023 staging of the magazine’s annual Product Awards. Lumileds, the global manufacturers of Philips automotive products, is celebrating yet another award for this pioneering headlamp, further adding to the host of accolades the bulb has received since its introduction.


Auto Express described Philips RacingVision GT200 as a shining example to the rest. The Philips bulb had the longest beam length and scored the highest on the Figure of Merit figure that combines all of the various measurement criteria that are tested. In addition, when deciding this year’s Headlamp of the Year, Auto Express for the first time added in price, and therefore value, as a contributing factor to its decision. 

Philips RacingVision GT200 raised the bar for halogen headlamp bulbs when it was introduced a couple of years ago, as the first bulb to deliver light that was up to 200% brighter compared to the minimum legal standard. 

“Auto Express has long been regarded the leading product tester of automotive products, so we are delighted that RacingVision GT200 has been recognised as 2023 Headlamp of the Year,” said Lumileds UK Business Manager, Richard Armstrong. 

Philips RacingVision GT200 remains the flagship of the halogen range, delivering the type of super-bright visibility of a rally bulb, but in a format that drivers can use on public roads. With its ultra-performance beam reaching a full 80 meters further than the minimum length, Philips RacingVision GT200 lets the driver see more of the road ahead. It also helps spot potential hazards sooner, react faster and position more accurately on the road. The optimised bulb design provides higher luminance for a better view of the road ahead, which all adds up to a safer, more satisfying driving experience. 

Philips RacingVision GT200 is available in the most common headlamp bulb types, H4 and H7.
